So convenient...a tatami mat that is all wrapped up in a compact roll measuring 12 inches long by 7 inches high with convenient carry straps and ready to be rolled out on a sandy beach. Once you undo the center tie and roll out the mat, you have a beach mat measruing 72 inches by 36 inches with a cotton covered pillow that can be inflated and used as a cushion for your head. The cotton fabric straps and cover have a large leaf and floral pattern in soft pastel colors on a seamist blue-green background. Very tropical and stylish.
