Understanding What Tatami Mats Are

Traditional Tatami mats are made of cloth and rush and are of Japanese origin. These woven mats are used in homes as well as commercial settings in that country. We at Southern Cross Mats have taken inspiration from these traditional mats and offer our customers an excellent range of Tatami Mats that can be used in commercial and home gyms, playrooms, fitness centres, martial arts centres etc.
