Add-ons total:


This floor mat is handmade of igusa (rush grass), a material which historically has been used for making tatami mats. Woven using igusa grown in Kyūshū – Japan’s southernmost main island – this floor mat is highly moisture absorbent, and has a relaxing, fresh fragrance. Treated with essential oils extracted from Aomori hiba wood – a species of cypress native to Japan – the mat has enhanced antibacterial and deodorising properties. By avoiding the standard mud-dyeing process employed to dry regular igusa, the rushes used in this floor mat retain smooth, dirt-resistant and chemical-free surfaces. The underside of the mat is made with recycled non-woven fabrics to prevent it from slipping, while the edges are made using linen.

Doesn’t require washing.
Keep dry to prevent mould from growing.
Avoid direct sunlight.
Due to the nature of the materials, the colour might change over time from green to light brown.

Size: L120 cm x W30 cm
