Our Tatami Mats are constructed of Japanese Rush Grass with a double layer top for extra protection. 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.
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".
Whereas our shikifutons, kakefutons, zabutons, pillows and shams are all made in the USA from imported Japanese fabrics, the tatami mats are all imported.
