Ikehiko was founded in 1886 as a wholesaler of tatami mats. Founded over 100 years ago, IKEHIKO has inherited traditions, culture and unique techniques of the region. We find great potentials in “igusa”, the traditional natural fiber familiar to Japanese. We devote ourselves in planning and developing “igusa” products, and deliver our products worldwide.
Ikehiko started cultivating igusa themselves from 2012 in Japan. Our own igusa is put into production of products directly after harvesting without any further processing. For that matter, we are able to achieve a texture that is natural and smooth to the touch with our products.
