Traditional Japanese Makisu Mat
Our Price: $45.00
This Makisu Mat is made, solely by hand, by 5th generation Rattan Blind Makers in Tokyo. Most comparable mats on the market today are machine made, disregarding the natural stream of the fibers, this causes large crooks in the small bamboo sticks sometimes rendering the product useless. The Makisu Mat has its bamboo material hand split by a hatchet. Next, skilled laborers weave the bamboo together by hand arranging the sticks in the natural pattern of the bamboo. The finished product is a more durable sushi mat as the hand split bamboo is split along the fiber. To clean simply wash with warm water and hang to dry.
Size: 245 x 273mm / 9.5 x 10 in.
