Royal Tatami takes a new route to reach eco-conscious genre

Tatami mats are a traditional form of floor covering found in homes across Japan and reflect the deep rooted age-old culture of the nation. In ancient times, these mats were considered as luxury items and were used by emperors, nobles and religious leaders of highest order. However, with passage of time, ordinary people also started using this simple yet elegant looking mat.

These mats were originally made using organic materials including, organic rice straw and hemp ropes. The authentic tatami has three sections namely tatami omote (reed or rush cover), tatami goto (straw core) and tatami beri (decorative cloth edging).

At present, tatami consists of two separate layers, the bottom straw core and the beautiful top layer of soft reed edged with a cloth.

It is believed that, organic tatami can last for three generations and because of its eco-friendly nature, the mat can be reused over and over again. The popularity of these mats has risen once more among environment conscious Japanese people. These mats are best way to keep the surroundings safe.

The young generation is also picking up the trend of buying products that can be recycled. One more reason to buy these floor coverings is that, they are available at lower rates and come in attractive patterns.
