How do I care for my Yoga Mat?

 

We have three different options for yoga mats to choose from, so there’s one suitable for everyone.
All of our yoga mats are made from natural rubber which is a natural polymer compound, with polyisoprene as its main component. Water-based ink is used in the printing process of these mats.

Micro-fibre suede top mats:

These mats are comprised of a naturally sourced tree rubber base* with a micro-fibre suede top (made from recycled plastic bottles) which ensures extra grip for heated Bikram and Yin yoga sessions. With these mats, in particular, we recommend that at the beginning of your practice, you lightly spray water on the top surface of the mat to prevent any sliding.
*Please note that the rubber may have a 1-2% latex content.

Cork top mats:

These mats are made of a high-quality cork top lining on a natural rubber base*. Cork is a material that's safe to use, environmentally friendly, and lightweight. With its unique antimicrobial properties, these cork yoga mats are ideal for sweaty hot yoga and Bikram.
*Please note that the rubber may have a 1-2% latex content.

Hemp mats:

Free from heavy metals, phthalates, dioxins and phenol, the rubber* used in this style of mat is not only eco-friendly but a wise choice for those with allergies and sensitivities. Combined with highly renewable hemp, this mat boasts both anti-bacterial and mould resistant properties.
*Please note that the rubber may have a 1-2% latex content.

Cleaning:

Simply cleaning your mat will help break down the thin film. Clean mat by mixing 1 cup water with 1 tbsp white vinegar and a few drops of your favourite essential oil. Dampen a cloth or lightly spray this mix over the mat and wipe dry. Make sure you let the mat dry completely before you roll it back up.
Do not use harsh chemicals on your mat as this could cause damage and discolouration.
Use and storage: Please remember that the best way to ‘break-in’ a new mat is to use it. It’s quite normal for brand new mats to need to be broken in before they develop that grippy surface. Our yoga mats are suitable for indoor/outdoor use but prolonged exposure to the sun may result in fading. If you are not 100% happy with your purchase, we offer a standard 30 day right of return, please see here.
