The Raku Tatami Mat is designed for the Raku Tatami Platform Bed to provide a traditional Japanese surface for your shiki or futon mattress.
The Raku Tatami Mat is a Japanese Grass Straw Tatami mat upon which you rest your futon or Shiki. Tatami mats have been used for centuries in Japan as a floor covering or bed surface.
Our Tatami mats have been designed and manufactured for modern use and are constructed of 4 layers of natural grass straw, topped with a high-grade, tightly-woven rush straw, sewn to the base layers. The Tatami mats can serve as a replacement for box-spring or foundations to provide even support for your thinner and more malleable futons or shiki mats. Additionally, their construction allows air to percolate up through the mats, into the mattress, and throughout the sleeping environment reducing molds and allergens and keeping the sleeping area fresh and healthy. The Tatami's covering of soft, woven rush straw cures over time to a golden hue. Thus, your mat will be a shade of green similar to the one seen in the main product image above upon arrival but will become more of a beige/gold hue as it ages. You may experience a light, pleasant, natural aroma as the Tatami cures.

I'm a hot sleeper, so i converted from a mattress on my platform bed to a Tatami Mat and a soft sleeping mat, and i feel like this improved airflow has also improved my sleep. From the description, I was also expecting a strong grass scent, but the slight natural grass scent was barely noticeable and nice out of the box, but it went away.after a day or two as the tatami mat adjusted to my room's humidity,.
I am writing to say thank you for such a beautiful piece of work. Raku Bed looks just as pretty as the photos you have on your site. The assembling was no sweat and the Tatami smells great. I will definitely recommend you to my friends and a return customer myself for sure.
