The Half Size Tatami Floor Mat is beautifully crafted in all natural materials, strictly following time-tested, Japanese traditions.

Manufactured in Taiwan, our mats are constructed in much the same way Tatami mats have been traditionally made in Japan, for hundreds of years. For instance, our mats use a natural rush grass exterior, and rice straw foundation, instead of the wafer board, or particle board that is commonly found in less expensive mats. Layered Rice straw is more time consuming to manufacture but it gives our mats that characteristic firmness with a slight give that makes Tatami mats such a unique and valuable floor covering.

In addition, the Rush grass straw used as a covering for our Tatami mats is rated, "Best Grade #1", meaning little or no visible variation in grass straw pattern, further evidence of the quality of construction used in the Haiku Designs Tatami Mats. Finally, the Rush grass mat is wrapped in durable, cloth edging and tightly woven/tension stitched to prevent warping or bending.

Because Tatami Mats include a large portion of rush straw, they are classified as an agricultural product and must meet strict U.S. Department of Agricultural customs regulations designed to prevent the introduction of insects, and molds into the country. Most Tatami mat manufacturers meet these requirements by placing toxic powder insecticide coatings into several layers of the tatami mat or fumigating the entire mat with pesticide gas, but not Haiku Designs.

Our Tatami Mats are the cleanest, most eco-friendly mats available today because they are processed and manufactured naturally. Instead of toxic pesticide powders, fumigation gas, or sprays, our mats meet the U.S. Customs requirements by means of an infrared heat process that eliminates any potential molds or infestations. In addition, our rush straw components are thoroughly washed using a special process before manufacturing. The end product is a stunning, all natural floor covering that is, eco-friendly, and toxin-free. With proper treatment, our Tatami mats will last for many years.

In addition to the health benefits related to zero-chemical exposure, our Tatami Mats provide relief from physical strain. When used as floor mats Tatami Mats provide a less impactful surface for walking, kneeling, sitting, or meditating. When used for sleep, Tatami Mats offer a supportive surface with a slight give, helping promote good posture and proper spinal alignment without the hardness of a solid floor. Additionally, Tatami Mats help regulate moisture by absorbing it during periods of high humidity and releasing it back into the air during dry spells, they also help control temperature by behaving as a natural insulator.
