Soothing scent and sensation

Rush Grass exudes a soothing natural aroma, reminiscent of Japanese tatami mats. If the scent ever fades, simply expose it to the sun, and like magic, it will reappear.
During the weaving process, artisans skillfully split the rush grass to approximately the width of a grain of rice and meticulously hand weave it, creating a comfortable texture with delightful tiny peaks and valleys.
