Show more images for this item.

Hana-goza originated from the Okayama prefecture, where it is still the center of production. The grasses are bleached, softened, and dyed with a whole spectrum of colors. Finally, weavers weave the mats. The Hana-goza's grassy outer surface has a great look, feel, and smell. See Amaury Saint-Gilles. "Mingei: Japan's Enduring Folk Arts". Tuttle Publishing, Tokyo (1990). p 68.
