“Sarari” Tatami RUG STYLE

Kitaichi Shouten, Limited (Tokyo)

Sarari Tatami is a tatami mat that can be laid on top of hardwood floors with the freedom and versatility of area rugs. In addition to employing the traditional tatami-making methods, these mats feature a unique deodorizing functionality achieved by weaving used tea leaves into the core. The surface is made from washi paper for durability, as well as natural mold-resistant and insect-repelling effects. Sarari Tatami offers the distinct touch, aroma and warmth of tatami in a new and innovative way.
