Pause for thought...
Have you ever been gently seated in a medatitive state and stopped to wonder about what it is that you´re seated on? Does the mat you invested in truly reflect your values and the teachings that yoga helps to bring to us all? Did the production of that mat damage our water systems, the environment or is it maybe even harmful in contact with your skin? Should you consider supporting a more mindful company that aces caring for the planet whilst providing a high-quality and beautiful yoga mat? Well, we´d like to think so!
What´s different about a MatMat?
Our beautiful and eco-friendly yoga mats are made of natural rubber and have a vegan suede finish. This ensures that you´re not touching any harmful chemicals whilst you push back into that downward dog. We care about all the beautiful yogis out there more than anything and we dread to think of the number of people currently rubbing their hands into harmful chemicals.
Is exposure to PVC really that bad?
Exposure to PVC f ex , the material commonly used to make yoga mats, includes exposure to chlorine, carcinogens and carcinogenic chemicals which can result in all sorts of awful health complications. As horrendous as it may be, it is necessary to accept that the toxins in PVC have also been linked to cancer. It´s not all doom and gloom, making the choice to use ecofriendly products is proven to improve quality of life and you´ll avoid all of those nasty health problems that come with a PVC mat.
Time for change
Our mats have been carefully chosen to give you the highest quality yoga mat: caring for you in your practice and caring for the planet during production. The mats have a 3mm natural-rubber base which cares for your elbows and joints as you work through your yoga practice. The eco-friendly micro fibre vegan-suede finish is super soft too, providing grip which also improves as you sweat. Rubber mats give much better cushioning and grip than PVC and TPE mats. Just look at the tests done here:
