In Japan, tatami mats were used. Tatami in Japanese means 'folded and piled'. Tatami mats are a traditional type of Japanese flooring. Tatami mats are usually made form rice straw and are made in uniform sizes. Tatami mats were originally used by Japanese nobility in Ancient Japan. The Heian era when the shinden-zukuri architectural style was prominent in houses, the house flooring was mainly wooden and tatami mats were used for the highest aristocrats. Tatami covered rooms were called zashiki which means ‘a room spread for sitting’. The arrangement of the tatami mats were determined by seating and etiquette. It was believed that before the 16th century, the ruling nobility and samurai slept on tatami or woven mats called goza while the common people used straw mats or loose straw for their beddings. The lower class people used mat-covered dirt floor. By the end of the 17th century, tatami mats became high in demand and were used by commoners.
