Takumi Next x Supermama
Kuboki Co Ltd is a group of tatami makers and have been producing tatami for over 270 years in Fukushima, Japan. A tatami is a type of mat used as a flooring material in traditional Japanese-style rooms. Tatami were originally a luxury item for the nobility. The lower classes had mat-covered earth floors.
During the Heian period, when the shinden - zukuri architectural style of aristocratic residences was consummated, the flooring of shinden-zukuri palatial rooms were mainly wooden, and tatami were only used as seating for the highest aristocrats.
As the demand for tatami mats decrease over the years, Kuboki Co Ltd aims to incorporate essence of tatami into our everyday lives through everyday objects.
