This mat features an Alignment guideline to help you focus and adjust your body to a more symmetrical position, without distracting you from your practice. It’s also antimicrobial and provides firmer grip from perspiration. And extra grip means less risk of injury on the mat.

 

Quality Guarantee

We only use the highest, most durable grade of Portuguese cork for our yoga mats. Our customers rely on us to produce a sustainable and long-lasting natural product for their yoga practice. Please note that it’s normal to see tiny gaps in the cork surface and tiny bubbles in the natural rubber.

This yoga mat is made out renewable and sustainable resources. No PVC, latex or plasticisers.

 

GRIP TIP:

If you would like even more traction, lightly spray the mat down with water where your hands and feet go before you practice.

Our high quality cork is abrasion resistant and durable, with a springy cushioned feeling to support and protect your joints.

Cork also contains Suberin, a waxy substance, which has incredible antimicrobial and anti-odour properties, killing germs and bacteria, making this mat incredibly easy to keep hygienically clean.

Natural rubber reduces your mat’s manufacturing carbon footprint by up to 80% compared to some types of conventional synthetic rubber.

 

 

SUSTAINABLE

The cork is harvested by hand-stripping the bark every 9 years, which naturally regrows. During this regrowth, Cork Trees absorb up to 5x more CO2 from the atmosphere, while remaining entirely unharmed, making it an ideal renewable resource. Cork is also 100% biodegradable and recyclable.

 

ANTI-MICROBIAL

Cork has anti-microbial properties that help to repel and kill bacteria, mould and mildew. This makes cork yoga mats naturally resistant to odours and incredibly easy to keep hygienically clean. Cork is non-toxic and hypo-allergenic, looking after your skin as well as your overall health.

 

THE ULTIMATE GRIP

Cork Contains a waxy substance called Suberin that forms the outer layer of the cork cells, protecting it against heat and moisture which is naturally what creates the amazing grip we love, as well as having strong elasticity, anti-abrasion and cushioning properties. Allowing you to stick through the sweatiest times! An eco-friendly yoga practice with the ultimate grip and enhanced comfort underfoot.

    Incredible to use!
    I’ve used cork mats before but this is by far the best! It’s great quality and heavier than others I’ve tried so it stays in place and doesn’t roll up at the edges. It has a soft feel under your hands and feet, really a joy to use. I often get sore wrists when I practice on a standard mat, but this one has the perfect amount of support/spongeyness which eases pressure on my wrists. Crow pose never felt so comfy!

    Absolutely love this mat!
    I’ve been using this mat for just over a month and I absolutely love it. It has such a nice feel and look to it: all the details have been thought out really carefully and I love the rounded corners. It is heavy enough to be fully supportive, yet thin enough to roll up compactly. I used to practise on a Manduka Pro but always found it too bulky to carry around – this mat provides the same support but is much easier to carry. I’m also very impressed with the grip – it is great to have a mat that has enough grip but without the stickiness that often comes with it. I practise ashtanga so having a surface material that is smooth means it is much easier to practise jump-throughs without needing a rug on top, and the material doesn’t feel cold when you roll out your mat either. I was sceptical about the alignment line at first because I thought I would find it distracting but actually it is subtle enough to help keep you aligned without distracting and I can’t imagine practising without the line now! And of course it makes it it a lot more satisfying to know that the brand is ethical and sustainable.

    Absolutely love this mat! It’s now my go-to for every single practice. It’s cushioned so it’s excellent for extra support under knees and joints and it’s a great size so I can totally spread out while practicing. The actual material is soft so I can transition through postures easily, but steady so my hands don’t slip all over the place, which is really important to me as I can get really sweaty throughout my practice. Also love the alignment line, I always use it, it’s great to have a quick glance down to make you’re in the right spot. The design is sleek but understated. Would 10/10 recommend & have had so many compliments about it 🙂 thanks so much for making a mat that ticks all of my boxes!
