The material of your mat one of the most essential choice you'll have to make. Why?
Because the material will determine the lifespan of your yoga mat, whether it can be recycled, how eco-friendly your yoga mat is, how grippy the surface is and how easy it is to clean it.
Premium, sustainable and recycled:
- top layer: CORK + TPE
The cork using in our mats has the - Forest Management Certification- which confirms that the forest is being managed in a way that preserves biological diversity and benefits the lives of local people and workers, while ensuring it sustains economic viability. The cork for these particular mats is grown in the Mediterranean, these forests support one of the world’s highest levels of biodiversity and not a single tree is cut down to harvest cork, rather, the bark is stripped by hand every 9 years and the trees can live up to 300 years. Harvesting cork is performed completely by hand and provides over 100,000 fair wage jobs. Cork oak trees store carbon in order to regenerate their bark and harvested cork oak trees absorbs up to five times more, carbon dioxide.

The underside of the mat is also non-slip due to a ribbed rubber structure, holding and giving you versatility even on slippery surfaces.
