 Product History

When did these crafts start to craft?:1200 years ago / 800AD / Heian period in Japan

Tatami was treated as a sign of power by the nobility. The thickness of the tatami, the color of the edges, and the pattern differed depending on the class of the person using it. Later, with the development of the tea ceremony, tatami spread to the masses and became popular. Such historical tatami can be found in shrines, temples, and various buildings throughout entire Japan land.
