Ishoku Tatami wall pieces are a series of unusual colored woven tatami mats, framed and finished with a hand stitched textile edge. A tatami is a type of mat used as a flooring material in traditional Japanese- style rooms made from woven igusa straw. In collaboration with Kyoto based Tatami maker Mitsuru Yokoyama. The frames of this series are made from recycled tea waste. In this series the mutual interest in crafts and heritage come together in a contemporary object.
