Tatami just is traditional Japan.
Made from straw and woven into soft mats – these slightly green floor-tiles make any room feel like you’re in olden-times Japan.
They smell… strong. But, they fill the room with a calm serenity as much as a grassy-odour.
Even nowadays, room sizes can be measured in the amount of tatami mats they fit.
Combine tatami mats with sliding paper doors (called shoji) and you can really experience a serene, beautiful room.
