History of Tatami: Tatami mats come to you straight from the Far East, where they have been making Tatami for hundreds of years. Tatami mats started as floor coverings and were also used to make chairs or benches by placing several Tatami on top of each other. When they were first made, Tatami mats were seen as luxury items for the wealthy when most people had dirt floors. Another function of Tatami was to indicate rank. The most exalted members of a ceremony or gathering were given the privilege of sitting on the Tatami, while others sat on the wooden floor. Tatami mats are much more widely used today, but are still employed for Japanese religious rites and tea ceremonies.
Tatami mats are constructed of Japanese Rush Grass with a double layer top for extra protection
The inside is a baked Dried Rice Straw Fill for strength and durability

I received my tatami exactly 5 days after ordering. I opened my packages and was very pleased with what I saw. They are now in my bedroom and looks absolutely splendid! I recommend shopping on this site.

Great product, not so great delivery
I am really happy with this purchase. Tatami mats look great and have a pleasant smell.
But I was surprised to see them dropped at the building front door without any attempt to notify me, as if it was too hard to press a button.

I sleep on these mats directly (with a sheet) and love'em. I was a bit worried about the quality but when they came, I was delighted. Oriental Furniture did well!
However, I've only had them a week so I can't speak to the mats' durability yet. If this site allows, I'll come back and update this review after sufficient time.
