In the Japanese home Tatami mats are used as a surface for sitting, sleeping, and walking on. Light enough to be carried by an adult, mats are composed of a thick rice straw core, a soft reed cover, and two borders of cloth tape which protect the sides. Tatami mats are an all natural floor or bed base, made from renewable plant resources.

A full size Tatami is 180 x 90 cm, about the size of a single bed, and approximately 5.5 cm thick. In combination with half size mats you can lay out various room sized patterns. Tatami evolved over a long period, first beginning as a thin, easily folded straw mat on which people sat or slept. Later, more layers of rice straw mat were added to the core for comfort. A new function of these fortified, but still portable, mats was to indicate differences in rank, the most exalted members being given the privilege of sitting on tatami while others sat on the wooden floor. Tatami eventually came to cover the entire floor and are now a standard item in Japanese-style rooms.

Important Information:

  • all our mats come in full thickness of 5.5 centimetres;
  • our mats are produced from traditional Japanese materials;
  • all our Tatami mats are heat treated instead of fumigated.
