Tatami Goza Mats from Japan are an interesting, natural addition to a room. They are made of sustainably-harvested rushes. Each tatami mat contains around 4,000 to 5,000 rushes. Hemp or cotton cord is then used to weave the rushes together.
The mats are especially good for children’s play rooms and bedrooms because they are long-lasting and stain-resistant. New tatami have a green color and a fresh grassy smell which fades in light to leave a bright golden color. They are naturally treated to resist insects. Goza mats are also relatively inexpensive: a 11.41′ by 11.41′ mat costs around $240, for example. Available from: Chopa, GoodsFromJapan or Japan Shoji.
