Artist Christine Slabb drew her creative inspiration for the 'Turtle Serenity' mat from the serene sea turtles that grace our oceans... and the vibrant blues in this mat certainly set the scene.
Sea turtles can live a remarkably long life – a life that we humans should reflect upon. A female turtle is slow-moving on the land, yet she is calm and determined to keep moving forward. She paces herself as she carries and pulls her heavy body across the soft sand. She does this with such inner strength and ‘serenity’ to her proclaimed destination.
Naturally sourced, the rubber used in our mats contains no silicone, toxic glue, phthalates or PVC and unlike other synthetic rubber or foam, it's hard-wearing and won’t retain moisture. The micro-fibre suede top is made from recycled plastic bottles and is not only comfortable to sit or lie on but a better choice for our planet. Being 5mm in thickness, our mats also allow for a stronger connection to the floor, setting the foundation for those challenging balance poses.
These luxury, eco-friendly yoga mats are perfect for all yoga practices, pilates, and general exercise classes and are not only light but come with a handy FREE hemp carry strap, making them easy to carry wherever your yoga takes you. You might also consider one of our organic cotton Yoga Mat Bags or perhaps a colourful recycled Yoga Block for the perfect zen set up.Namaste!

These mats are our own brand made specifically for Recycled Mats. Please note that only our micro-fibre range of Yoga Mats & Meditation Mats have a recycled component to them, in the topper itself which is made from recycled plastic bottles. Recycled Mats is our trading name and refers to the recycled plastic mats that are our main line of products. The yoga mats are a more recent addition to the range and whilst eco-friendly, are not made from recycled rubber.
