Futon Company staff tutored in the master art of futon making…by the experts themselves
Futon Company employees from up and down the country are being tutored in the master art of futon making…by the experts themselves. For the past few months, sales assistants and managers from the company’s 21 shops have been visiting the London-based Futon Company factory to receive expert tutoring and on-the-job training.
Says Futon Company’s Jonathan Harris: “The making of futons is such a fun activity that our shop staff love the opportunity to try their hand. Under the benevolent…and patient… instruction of the long-suffering Futon Makers, they actually make their own futons and then sleep on them.”
As well as learning a new craft, all employees taking part in the workshop get to take their handmade futon home with them, equipping them with the knowledge and expertise to offer firsthand knowledge on the art of futon making to customers.
