Published on 06.03.2016 An introductory video of artisans in Yokohama, Kanagawa.
This video is about the artisans of the traditional tatami mats!

Tatami is the traditional flooring in Japan. It has been used since the Nara Period(8th century).
Tatami maker is a traditional and unique job in Japan that has been passed down from generation to generation. These tatami makers don’t only make new tatami mats, but also reuse old tatami mats to reface or repair them.
In order to fit tatami mats to a room perfectly, the artisans must sew the tatami carefully and precisely to avoid mistakes.
