Our Story

About Us

The Tatami Shop was established in Singapore in 1999 because we are passionate about the beauty and versatility of natural fibers. We came across Premium Japanese Igusa that is grown in Kyushu, Kumamoto and was captivated by the growing and harvesting process of the Igusa. Seeing how each strand of Igusa was being weaved individually through traditional methods to create Tatami was inspiring. After learning about the benefits of the art of Tatami Floor Sleeping and Japanese Igusa, we embarked on our journey to create authentic Tatami solutions for modern homes. From easing backaches with our Tatami Mattresses to creating a Tatami Concept room to unwind in, we aim to help you find a Tatami solution that meets your daily needs.

What Is Tatami?

Tatami has a history of 2000 years in Japanese culture and lifestyle. Tatami originated in Japan, and it is a type of woven mat traditionally used by Japanese Royals, Samurais, and Japanese Officials as beds, floorings and chairs. The Japanese believe that Tatami has a natural connection to the individual’s wellbeing. Some benefits include the distinctive grassy fragrance of the Igusa, relaxing your mind and body, being able to cool your body down during hot and humid temperatures and vice versa. Relaxing and calming your mind & body with Tatami is easy because Tatami provides positive energy while grounding negative energy.

Upon learning about these benefits, we wanted to bring a 2000-year-old concept into modern homes so that a new generation of homeowners can experience these benefits.
