The word "Tatami" 畳 is derived from the Japanese word “tatamu” 畳む.

The word "tatamu" has various meanings.



To fold something that has been spread out and stack it on top of itself. To pile up or has the meaning of "to pile up" or "to stack".

Tatami in Japan has been used to refer to all kinds of carpets since ancient times. Later, it became the current design used indoors.



As in the meaning of “tatamu”, tatami is often stacked, and when used as bedding, it is said that aristocrats and people of high status used to sleep on it by stacking tatami to create height.

Life with tatami was truly a life of longing and luxury.
