A Japanese sense of beauty in the Tatami-beri (border of a tatami) See, make, and enjoy the Tatami-beri
Japanese people put a sense of beauty in the tatami.
We can see it in the Tatami-beri.
It is the cloth covering the border.
Usually, its color is dark blue or black.
But actually, there are more than 1,000 kinds of Tatami-beri by various colors and parterres.
Long time ago, its colors and patterns were decided by the status, but recently, it’s used as an
accent to decided an image of the Japanese room.
It’s a typical Japanese sense of beauty because it’s not outstanding, but Japanese people emphasize
its colors and patters.
This Tatami-beri is used for crafts.
Various ideas are covered on a Japanese book
“Tatami-beri Handmade Book (NIHON VOGUE Corporation).
The Tatami-beri is like a ribbon that is 8cm wide.
In this book, Japanese tastes are put in charm porches or purses.
Charm porches are used to put a precious message card, and purses are good to bring going somewhere.
If you like crafts, you can’t avoid making them.
Please see and enjoy the Tatami-beri in the Japanese room, and try the Tatami-beri craft if you have a chance.
