TATAMI MAT FLOORS HAVE BEEN A JAPANESE TRADITION FOR OVER 1400 YEARS
The NATURAL IGUSA TATAMI may keep the temperature mild, purify the air, control moisture and absorb humidity therefore it is friendly to the human body and environment.
Tatami absorbs a lot of moisture naturally, which is a good thing as it regulates the moisture in your house, but the mats do need to be dried out every so often.
Unlike carpet, tatami mats are not a permanent installation and lift out of the floors relatively easily, meaning they can be taken outside on a hot day for air and sun. This should kill any mildew, bugs or mould colonies that you’ve been harbouring.
