Tatami – Nothing Stands for Japanese Living Like Tatami Mats do
Tatamis are mats made of rice straw and igusa grass. They are traditionally used in Japan as a floor covering in private homes and temples. A room decorated in the traditional Japanese style would not be complete without tatami. In Japan, rooms are measured in tatamis, not in m². The standard size for one mat is approximately 90 x 180cm. The thickness of our mats varies from 1,5 cm to 5,5 cm.
Tatami mats consist of a dried and pressed core of rice straw. The surface is made of a soft woven igusa-grass cover. The long sides are protected by a border made of cotton material, which is available in several colors. Besides being used as a floor covering, tatamis can also be used under a futon. Many Japanese families today reserve one room in their home for the tea ceremony, and decorate this room withtatamis and shoji doors.
Tatamis are excellent for thermal and acoustic insulation. In Japan, you never walk on tatamis with shoes – only barefoot or with socks! We produce special sizes on request. You can customize your own tatami to the size you need. It is even possible to order tatami mats with slanted sides. The maximum width of the tatami is limited to 100 cm due to production restrictions. Please ask for an individual offer. We are happy to advise you.
We also carry lightweight,rollable tatami mats made of soft igusa grass and sedge. These affordable mats are an easy way to add texture and color to any room. Let our large selection inspire you!
