We use only tatami omote (Igusa) made in Japan.

Among the rest, 20% of the whole products, we select the best of the best tatami-omote made in Yatsushiro region in the Kumamoto prefecture, the largest producer of tatami-omote by buying the best Igusa at the time directly from the Igusa farmer there.
As for Japan made Igusa, there are big differences in quality between high-quality Igusa and Low-quality ones.
