Zen Mat (Mat made with rush grass)

Floor Cushions/Rugs
This Zen Mat incorporates the Japanese idea of living, that simplicity is the greatest luxury. It is offered to create a mat-sized space to calm and enrich the spirit. Kurashiki is the birthplace of the figured mat, and the Zen Mat is the product of that Japanese concept put into practice by young craftsmen who have inherited over 100 years of traditional techniques. To maximize the appeal of the natural rush from which the mats are made, local continuous
production that starts with cultivation and ends with manufacturing was considered essential. The mats are woven at the pace of one per hour. A soothing mat made of safe, natural materials turns any room, be it a living room or bedroom,
into a peaceful space. Use this mat to incorporate zen into a busy daily life and create an opportunity for self-reflection.
