Experience the lasting charm of traditional Japanese design with the Auspicious Tatami Mat Collection. Skillfully crafted from natural rush grass, these mats encapsulate the serenity and authenticity of Japan's enduring traditions. Rooted in classical culture, the thoughtful arrangement of Tatami mats has held significance for centuries, and its essence continues to grace contemporary homes with a sense of harmony, equilibrium, and lasting allure.
During the Edo period of classical Japanese culture, the strategic placement of Tatami mats in specific patterns within homes, teahouses, or temples was thought to bring about auspiciousness and attract good fortune. This ancient practice, which eventually gave rise to the Washitsu room or Japanese-style room, endures as a testament to the timeless appeal of natural beauty, harmony, and simplicity inherent in Japanese interior design.
The Auspicious Tatami Mat Collection celebrates these traditions, offering an array of choices to suit your living space. Our collection proudly features the Auspicious 5-Piece Tatami Mat Set, thoughtfully designed to recapture the revered "Auspicious" style layout. Nevertheless, recognizing that each space is unique, we also offer individual Tatami floor mats in both half and standard sizes.
Individual Tatami Floor Mats: Customized Excellence
Our individual Tatami floor mats in half and standard sizes grant you the flexibility to tailor your space to its distinctive dimensions. The Half Size Tatami spans 35.5"W x 35.5"L x 2"H, while the Standard size measures 35.5"W x 71"L x 2"H. This affords you the opportunity to relish the aesthetic and practical advantages of Tatami mats while ensuring a bespoke fit that aligns with your requirements.
Eco-Friendly Tatami Mat Craftsmanship from Taiwan
Incorporating eco-friendly practices, our Tatami Mats are meticulously manufactured in Taiwan. They echo the time-honored traditions of Japanese craftsmanship and are made with a natural rush grass exterior and a foundation of rice straw—significantly more labor-intensive compared to the use of less costly materials like wafer board or particle board. The layered rice straw construction offers the characteristic firmness with a gentle resilience that renders Tatami mats a truly exceptional and valued floor covering.
Holistic Living and Health Benefits of Tatami Mats
The commitment to your well-being and the environment is woven into every fiber of our Tatami Mats. The natural rush grass straw used as a covering for our Tatami mats is rated "Best Grade #1," reflecting the unparalleled quality of the Haiku Designs Tatami Mats. To uphold both eco-friendliness and your health, our mats are processed and manufactured naturally. This means no toxic pesticide powders, fumigation gas, or sprays are employed.
Moreover, our Tatami Mats offer more than just aesthetics. These mats provide relief from physical strain, offering a softer surface for walking, kneeling, sitting, or meditating. When used for sleep, Tatami Mats provide a supportive surface with a slight give, helping maintain good posture and proper spinal alignment without the rigidity of a solid floor. They also help regulate moisture and temperature, acting as a natural insulator.
