Tatami Mats are a versatile natural surface, use for sleep or play
Tatami Mats are made in the traditional Japanese way with rice straw, Sea grass and brocade edging.
Available in x 3 sizes. 70 x 200 cm, 80 x 200 cm and 90 x 200 cm.
Tatami are extremely versatile and use on beds or the floor. The video shows a partly suspended floor, therefore this enhances comfort. Also the material “gives” especially when tatami is in use for recreational purposes.
For example in small spaces when children are playing and having fun they will not hurt themselves if falling over.
Yoga and martial arts training are further activities to do on Tatami Mats and feel safe.
The Tatami mats we offer are an authentic surface and nicely finished with silk brocade. The traditional core is compressed rice straw. This core is covered with Sea grass reeds.
The x 4 sizes we offer are 70 x 200 cm, 80 x 200 cm 90 x 200 cm and 100 x 200 cm perfect when used in conjunction with our Low Level Beds.
In conclusion Tatami is easily cut with a handsaw or sharp blade.
Tatami mats are 5.5 cm thick, but as they are hand finished there may be a small variation.

Love Your Futon
Essentially we feel it makes perfect sense to not just look after your futon but Love Your Futon. When you invest hundreds of pounds in a futon mattress get the best possible use from it. We insert a Care Leaflet with every futon mattress that we make. Therefore please take the time to digest the useful advice on the page. Furthermore as specialist futon mattress makers we want you to benefit from the sound sleep we hope it gives.
A few customers mention how thick the futon mattresses are when they first arrive in a customer's home. We explain on the leaflet and also when they call that there's air in the layers of filling. As a result the futon has to be in use for a week or so before there's some settlement. This "bedding in" process is completely normal and most of all necessary to have an even surface.
While we want to get rid of the air at the beginning of the futon mattress's life, things move on. We very much hope the futon sits on a surface of slats. This is especially relevant as we want air to circulate around the mattress. If air circulates it will enable a drying out process to occur. We all sweat at night when we sleep and the moisture can reside in the filling and eventually create mould. Drying out the futon will prevent mould from growing. On a hot dry day take your futon outside and let it sit in the sun to get completely dry. An open window can help get the same effect.
After 7-9 years
I hope you will have much use from your wonderful comfy futon mattress. But probably after nearly a decade the time will be approaching when you have to say "goodbye" old friend.
Tatami Mats are extremely versatile and can be stored easily without fear of degradation.
We offer a range of Low Level Beds specifically to use with Tatami Mats and we can offer some advice if you’d like to use your Tatami directly on the floor for Yoga, Meditation or an area for children’s recreation.
Futon mattresses are an integral part of Japanese living and as such have a close relationship with Tatami mats which is what your futon mattress sits on. How firm you want your futon mattress to be is covered in the futon mattress category and any of our range would be suitable. To discuss further please email email@example.com or call 020 7223 7212.
