Tatami mats are an integral part of Japanese architecture to the extent that they are used as a surface unit when describing houses. The problem is that tatami is still made the way they used to when everyday life was different, which means that some rethinking might be in order. The Slope Tatami Floor Mat is one such rethinking: a four-mat set that takes the idea of tatami to a whole new level.
Made from a combination of handmade Japanese paper (washi) and other materials, the Slope Tatami Floor Mat is more water-repellent and more durable than a regular tatami. But that's not all: you can lay it over a regular floor and, as its name says, its edge is sloped so it is safer for people with wheelchairs as well as for children. Add in a non-slipping bottom surface and you end up with something that will add a touch of "wa" (Japanese style) to your home without abandoning the 21st century.
