About Tatami Mats


Tatami mats have been around for thousands of years.
Whether you are in Japan or other parts of the world you will enjoy the comfort and refreshing feeling of lying on a Tatami mat.
One of the key parts of our mats is the use of Igusa rush grass, the straw of the mat.
Made of rice straw and sea rush grass (Igusa, Junius effusus)they are beautiful, comfortable and work wonderfully even in high humudity areas like you find in Japan.


“Igusa(Juncus effusus) “with the common names common rush is a perennial plant/perennity herbaceous species in the family Juncaceae.
Also Juncus means “Tie” in Latin.
Originally from India it was introduced thousands of years ago in Japan via the Silk road trade routes.
Igusa straw is the perfect material to use in the construction of Tatami mats. Flexible, strong and light it brings a wonderful feeling of calm and comfort.

At Yoshida all our mats are made with the finest of Igusa straw available.
