It is a special type of tapestry approximately 5 cm thick, made with modules of pressed rice straw, covered at the top by a thin reed mat and topped with brocades or a simple band of dark color.
Queen futon mattress can be placed individually, in pairs and can also be used to cover a room entirely. In the traditional Japanese architecture they had standard measurements and were used as a module to size the different rooms. Originally they were alone in the houses of the upper classes. Japanese houses today usually have at least one room paved with tatamis , to celebrate the tea ceremony or to receive guests. These spaces have a very versatile character and are very suitable for yoga or gymnastics.
