Tatami with Japanese paper is recently gaining attention
Japanese traditional flooring “Tatami” is made from plant called “Igusa” for a long time.
Woven Igusa covers the surface and realizes fresh green smell.
However, there are disadvantages of Igusa such as easy to get damaged by time, to get fungus or pests and difficult to maintain.
Recently, Tatami using “Japanese paper” on its surface is gaining attention.
Though there is no fresh green smell like Igusa, there are a number of advantages.
Japanese paper has been used for Fusuma and Shoji.
It controls humidity so it’s functional.
“Japanese paper” is a sort of paper so it’s easy to get damaged.
