No Japanese home is without a Tatami Room, which is used for a variety of purposes (eating, sleeping, watching TV). The Tatami remind the Japanese of "home" and wherever there is tatami, there is "home".
Our Tatami Mats are constructed of Japanese Rush Grass with a double layer top for extra protection. The inside is a baked Dried Rice Straw Fill for strength and durability.
Each mat is sewn with a black fabric border and bound with twine. A moisture resistant barrier is included in the foundation of the mat.
80" long by 38" wide. 2" high, 70 pounds. For a king shikifuton you will need two mats to make an 80" x 76" sleep surface.
