These are the key characteristics of the very best Japanese items in a craft history that dates back well over 1,000 years. Each straw thread is carefully woven using a loom that can only be operated by very experienced craft workers. This gives us the raw material for making our beautiful mats and cushions.A complete re-imagining of tatami. Using traditional tatami craft techniques, the unique shape of these cushions is created by sewing our super mats into cylinders using thread that is flexible but very strong, and needles that in some cases are the size of a human hand.
We suggest you would use recycled blanket or bath towels for inside the cushion.
