What is Tatami Mat?

Tatami is a Japanese unique culture never seen in other countries and is mainly used in a wide range of situations such as judo, tea ceremony, yoga, and Japanese-style rooms. However, it is a bit difficult to install as they require detailed room dimensions.

 

On the other hand, a tatami "mat (unit/Oki-tatami)" is easy to install because you only need to place it like a rug on the flooring. The surface is smooth and has a great texture, and you usually take off your shoes to sit on them.

There are multiple ways to use and move it anytime anywhere you want.

In what situations can tatami mat be used?

It can be used in many ways, depending on you. 

You can put two sheets together, use it as a yoga mat, put three sheets together, and use it for napping. If you like meditating, a single tatami mat by itself can be used for that.

Place them in different places to try out different atmospheres. They can also be used as room decorations.

Why Daiken Tatami?


Traditionally, tatami is composed of a board made of straw and a surface covered with woven Igusa (Rush straw). However, tatami made of "Rush straw" has some disadvantages such as causing discoloration, abrasion, and tick exposure.

DAIKEN developed a new material of tatami using Japanese woven paper. This surface has a high performance, including resistance to ticks, mold, climate, water, and abrasion.
