goza are the top decorative layer of traditional tatami mats and lend to any room or space that special Oriental atmosphere and aroma - perfect for meditation, yoga and relaxation.
Our mats are ideal for your children's play rooms and bedrooms as they are natural, long-lasting, stain-resistant, wipe clean easily and improve air quality.
Each mat is edged with an attractive patterned border which can be used for securing your mat to the floor surface.
New tatami have a green color and a fresh grassy smell which fades in light to leave a bright golden color and are naturally treated to repel insects. The size of Japanese rooms are still measured in tatami or -jo to this day, as traditional tat ami had a basically standard size (roughly 90cm by 180 cm - 3 feet by 6 feet), though mats from Kyoto and the west of Japan (honma) were slightly larger than the mats produced in Tokyo and eastern Japan (edoma).
Mat covers are made of soft reeds and each tatami mat contains around 4,000 to 5,000 rushes. Hemp or cotton cord is then used to weave the rushes together.
Our tatami carpets make the ideal gifts for you, your home and friends.
