TATAMI mat tableware

Those of you who have visited a Japanese home, ryokan inn or restaurant will surely have come across tatami, the traditional flooring made from woven soft rush straw. We have re-invented these mats as unique table mats and coasters!

Simple, natural, and extremely durable, these mats are sure to create a talking point in your home. Use them for place settings or under your favourite vase or ornament. 

We currently selling these only at our market stall. Come and see them for yourself!

NOREN doorway curtains

These will also be familiar to anyone who’s been to Japan! Shop owners hang these noren curtains out the front of the shop to indicate that they’re open; they are hung at entrances to traditional bath houses and inns; and many people also use them inside their homes. Noren make a stylish addition to any internal or external doorway. Use them for privacy, to mark transitions between different parts of your home, or to announce the entrance to an important room or space. They’re great for bedrooms, ensuites, guest rooms, and passageways. 

Material

High-quality cotton fabric made in Japan. The designs, colours and feel of the fabric are all vastly superior of the 'Japanese-style' fabrics available in mainstream stores in Australia.

Please note that all fabrics are one-sided, but as shown in the picture to the right, the pattern is also clearly visible on the reverse side. These fabrics look great from any angle!

Sizes and mounting

The curtains are designed to fit any standard doorway width (openings of up to 950 mm wide - not including the frame). They vary slightly in length as listed below. All curtains are sewn at the top as shown here so you can easily insert a curtain rod or dowel (or even a wire) to hang them on. Just put a bracket or nail on each side of the top of the door frame to rest the rod on. Alternatively, just tack the curtain directly to the frame.

Designs currently available are shown below.
