Have these tatami mat been treated with fire retardant chemicals? Thank you.
Actually if you like HARD mattresses this is definitely your pick. I personally can't sleep well on soft mattresses and when I got this I was hoping this would be the last buy I'd ever need. Unfortunately I felt that it was TOO HARD. I sleep fine on it but I need some cushion. On the hand, my family members who grew up with this stuff LOVE it. Probably the nostalgia factor or something but that's my 2 cents....

Story Behind the Art:
This handcrafted item and many others come from a third-generation family-run workshops in mainland China. Their skills of hand-painting, hand-rubbed lacquering, and hand-tooling have been passed down for many generations. We are proud to support them in their quest to keep their age-old techniques alive for future generations. Many of the artists are hired out of semi-retirement to work from home, training the next generation to become master craftsmen. These masters are highly respected in their craft and their culture which have survived through many Chinese dynasties and continue to produce valuable and desirable pieces for your home decor.
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.

The mat arrived and is huge and heavy and not green - it's more beige. If it weren't so huge I'd send it back, but it would cost so much to return it it doesn't seem worth it. It's comfortable to lie on but not what I had in mind, definitely wouldn't recommend...Read More

Questions & Answers
Hello cubeb, this item does not have fire retardant chemicals added to it. Thanks for shopping with us!
To fit a full-size futon, would I need to buy a pair of mats, or just one? Thanks!
Hello bbeehler, per my research the measurement of a full futon is approximately 54 inches inches wide x 70 inches long. If you are to combined two of the mats side by side your measurements would be approximately 70 inches wide x 70 inches long which wouldn't match the dimensions. If you put them long-wise the dimensions are approximately 140 inches long x 35 inches wide, which would not match the dimensions of a full size futon. Thanks for shopping with us!
How is it installed? Are there floor preparations that need to be made before installation? Can other sizes be ordered to accommodate a room size?
This is just a matt that you can lay on your existing floor, no preperations would need to be done. Unfortunately I was unable to find this particular item in any other sizes.
