TATAMI MAT

Our tatami can be placed anywhere in your home. With a thickness of 1.5 cm (Only the Classic Series is 3 cm), they are thin and not so different from a rug. Tatami with and without edging are available as well as a wide range of colors. You will definitely be able to find a match for your interior.

We sell sets that can be enjoyed immediately upon delivery.

Our tatami is square, 82 cm (64.56 in) x 82 cm (64.56 in). (Except for the Classic Series)
You can make a purchase of one mat, but we also offer sets of 3, 4, 6, 9, and 12, that can be immediately spread out on the floor and enjoyed upon arrival.

Two different colored mats are pictured arranged on the floor.

For example the picture showing 6 mats depicts a 3 mat set in Zen Black, arranged with a 3 mat set in Zen Beige. The picture of 12 mats shows a 6 mat set in Zen Black arranged with a 6 mat set in Zen Beige.

Hints for Arranging Tatami

The tatami surface has a texture.

texture
If the same tatami is arranged with the texture in different directions,
the light will make the mats appear as being different colors.

Use tatami on top of flooring or smooth tiles.
The slip resistant material may not be effective when placed over carpet or rugs.

Slip Resistant

Slip resistant material is used on the back side to keep your tatami anchored to the floor.
However, this feature may not be effective when placed over carpet or rugs.

Important Note about Tatami

Make sure to remove shoes and all footwear before stepping onto the tatami.

Modern Tatami Life

Tatami is a traditional product that has continued for more than 1300 years.
With improvement in design and functionality, modern tatami can be enjoyed in many different settings.

LIVING ROOM

Just by placing tatami in a room, the atmosphere becomes that of a ryokan (traditional Japanese inn).
It may be a new experience, but please try lying down on tatami. Don’t forget to remove your shoes.

BED ROOM

Many people in the United States purchase tatami to place in the bedroom.
Please spread the tatami over the bed frame or flooring and place a mattress or futon on top.
The fragrance of igusa has a relaxing effect and many people enjoy a feeling of calm as part of the tatami experience.※

※ There are differences. The igusa aroma is only found in our IGUSA Series. Other products are made from unnatural igusa and are not fragrant.

We recommend those who are not familiar with the smell of igusa to buy a sample before making a purchase.
The sample will be sent from Japan at a fee of $9. We strongly suggest a sample be bought first as to ensure a satisfying purchase.
The sample set includes tatamiomote from the IGUSA Series, which uses natural fragrant igusa, as well as samples with no fragrance from the TOKYO Series and the ZEN Series.
Please compare and consider which sample is best for you.
