Would this product be suitable as a yoga mat? Thanks!
As expected. Note: Mat should be allowed to air out since these have a characteristic odor that some may find unpleasant. It's just part of the package with this material....
Goza Mat (China)
ITEM#: 11208249Product Features
- Handcrafted canvas Goza mat mimicks the design of a traditional Tatami mat
- Great for doing yoga on or using as a Japanese-style small area rug

This handcrafted item comes from a third generation family-run factory in mainland China. Their hand-painting, hand-rubbed lacquering and hand-tooling skills have been passed down for many generations. These artists are highly respected in their craft and their culture which has survived through many Chinese dynasties. We are proud to support them in their quest to keep their age-old techniques alive for future generations.
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.

These are very nice quality mats. I am actually using them as window coverings and they are very tighlty woven and can not be seen throughRead More
This mat is the absolute best mat. I have it by my front entry and it looks great. It collects all the outside shoe debris, and sweeps right off.Read More

I bought this mat for a guest bedroom. It looks nice and clean, perfect on cement floor, especially during warm weather. I think it would be great too for yoga or standing exercising. That being said, it's not a rug, but a light and simple mat.Read More
This mat has received unjustified bad reviews. The person who complained about it being green should have realized that this mat is made of fresh rush grass in order to be flexible enough to weave. Anyone who has ever ventured outdoors knows that fresh cut grass is green, and this grass will remain green for a number of weeks. Thus, any fresh tatami is going to be green when it is first received. And of course, until it thoroughly dries, it will also smell like the lawn after it is mowed (to address what the other poster said about the smell). Unfortunately a lot of people are uneducated about these mats before they give them poor reviews. I put this mat outside in the sun for 3 days, and it turned a beautiful golden brown color like my other goza have in the past. The quality of the weave and the border is very good, and the price simply cannot be beat for a fresh finished goza mat. I will be purchasing more.Read More
I have ordered several tatami mats over the years. After reading some of the reviews, I think that there is a great deal of misunderstanding about this item, its possible uses, and its resulting value to customers. I have lived in Japan so am quite familiar with the mats as used there. First, the mat is supposed to have a smell which comes from the material from which it is made. Rather, I would call it a fragrance. Sometimes called "sweetgrass", that is an apt description. Everyone may not like this fragrance, it does dissipate over time. In Japan, and probably in other Asian countries, no one would walk on a tatami mat with shoes. Socks or anything soft is what is appropriate. Tatami mats do get damaged from use or overuse, and in that case, they are replaced. There are not a lot of tatami mats available in the United States, and they are of varying qualities and prices. Overall, for both the price and the quality of this mat, I give it my highest recommendation.Read More
