After the Sino-Japanese War，when began to be colonized by Japan for 51 years, tatami were introduced into Taiwan and Taiwanese than got related with tatami industry. However, along with economic development, tatami industry had declined because of the high development of Capitalism, and the traditional production technique gradually lost well. In view of the situation, this study is to establish historical data about tatami for being a reference in future and helping the revitalization of traditional industries. By the way of deeply comprehend tatami production technique, the study would discover elements suitable for nowadays design and unearth the engineering method and characteristic of tatami.
At present, the research and literature about tatami are rare, nor are the studies about tatami craftsmen. Consequently, this study adopted field investigation and interview to discover historical roots of tatami from early paleography, and found out the tatami production technique from interviews of craftsmen. On the other hand, the research analyzed heritage system of craftsmen according to their dictation. Finally, the result of literatures and interviews would be summed up to be the production and marketing patterns of Taiwan tatami industry.
The results of the research show that all tatami production engineering methods require its craftsmen with manual techniques and can be classified into handmade, semi-automatic mechanical aids, and automatic machinery manufacturing. In the production and marketing respect, there are many tatami kobo raised their exposure and expand service area by internet marketing. In the respect of Inheritance, most of Taiwanese craftsmen would choose their families to pass on tatami technique. Some of them have be tried to develop new type tatami by adding in their creative and local specialties in order to face the status of shrinking industry, showing that the tatami industry in Taiwan have already evolved their own tradition.
