Story Behind the Art: We at Oriental Furniture are pleased to announce our new line of Tatami Mats. Tatami mats started as floor coverings and were also used to make chairs or benches by placing several Tatami on top of each other. When they were first made, Tatami mats were seen as luxury items for the wealthy when most people had dirt floors. Another function of Tatami was to indicate rank. The most exalted members of a ceremony or gathering were given the privilege of sitting on the Tatami, while others sat on the wooden floor. Tatami mats are much more widely used today, but are still employed for Japanese religious rites and tea ceremonies. Floor coverings are the most popular option, but benches, stools, tables and desks can also be constructed using multiple Tatami. This hand-crafted item and many others come from a third generation family run factory in mainland China.
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.
