What "Tatami" is

Tatami is a thick rectanglar mat used as floor covering in the Japanese traditional room.

The mat is generally covered with woven rush of grass, which is called "omote".
Note that in some countries, the rush cannot go through customs.
We also have omote made of woven washi, which is a Japanese traditional paper.
The washi omote does't have the natural scent like the rush omote.
But it has the advantages of not fading as quick as the rush omote.
The washi omote comes in various colors and is becoming popular in Japan nowadays.

The edges are basically bound with a border, which we call "heli".
There are many patterns and colors in which you can pick from.
You can choose your tatami with or without a border.
