Let me introduce our Mission, our dream, the WHY?
The question has always been....
What OTHER products can we make from tatami mat borders?
They are SUPER durable - they stand up to daily foot traffic!
They are lightweight - made from a blend of polypropylene and polyethylene threads.
AND they won’t fade or wear off - the colors and patterns are woven NOT dyed or printed.
Belieeeeve me, we were not the first company to think about diversifying our product line. Many creatives have used tatami mat borders for: coin pouches, business card holders, wallets, hats, hair ribbons - you name it, someone has tried her hand at it.
In fact, a local fashion apparel store launched a handbag company domestically, exclusively in Japan, focusing primarily on the 55+ market.
But these handbags produced domestically needed some pizazz -
After all, not all women want to carry a brown copycat handbag.
This is where Maryse spent one year in the United States researching, discovering and learning - with one goal in mind -
To bring a fusion of Japanese culture and American vitality of a ShimaShima Bag to you!
