For the last 280 years, KUBOKI has worked with tatami craftsmen to create traditional Japanese tatami from Fukushima prefecture. Their most recent development has centred around creating tatami accessories that explore the use of the tatami material’s qualities such as water resistance and durability. By doing so, the makers aim to preserve the craft of tatami weaving to the next generation. The Tatami Coaster is developed from one such exploration. While the demand for tatami dwindles, the craft lives on.
