I am a sustainable yoga mat made in natural rubber and cork with a beautiful printed pattern of Japanese art deco scales. It’s our “VAGUES” yoga mat ! In French, its name means “WAVES”. If you are looking for a printed yoga mat, I might be the best mat for you !
A non slip yoga mat
I don’t bounce or fold : I stay flat on the floor during your practice ! Yes, I’m not just a pretty yoga mat : I am a professional and technical yoga mattress.
My cork surface is naturally non-slip and thanks to the natural moist of your hands and feet. The more you sweat, the better is the grip ! If you have dry hands, then I’m not the ideal mat for you. But if you have a tendency to have sweaty hands, I’m definitely the best yoga mat for you !
How to clean my cork yoga mat ?
In addition to being a non slip yoga mat, my cork surface is naturally anti-bacterial which allows me to avoid developing bad smell. I’m the perfect hot yoga mat !
I still require maintenance once in a while, just like every rubber yoga mat. When you feel the need, spray me with a magical mix : half water and half white vinegar (+ possibly a few drops of organic fine lavender essential oil). Gently rub a soft sponge over my cork surface, without rubbing hard (you would not want not to damage it!) and let me dry flat. I’ll be clean again ! But keep in mind : I am not machine washable, it would damage me! Cork is a natural material that develops a natural patina over time. Observing a discoloration or wear of the cork on the areas the most in contact with your hands and feet is normal and will give me all my charm as an object used and loved, and it does not affect my grip in any way !
An eco-friendly yoga mat
In addition to being made with natural material (natural rubber and cork), I am delivered in a packaging designed to limit waste and the use of plastic: I am wrapped in a seeded paper containing melliferous seeds. Once I’m unpacked, plant the packaging in the ground, it will sprout ! Does it make me a green yoga mat ? Somehow yes 🙂
I’m kept closed by an upcycled fabric tie and sent in a reused cardboard box. In the same logic of minimalism and waste reduction, I am delivered without carrying strap, thus leaving you the choice to acquire one or not.
I’m designed in France and responsibly made in China (read more in “Our values” page)
The inks of the yoga mattress designs and the seeded paper are water-based.
This cork yoga mat is also a non-toxic yoga mat : our yoga mats are analyzed by an independant laboratory.
For each mat purchased, a donation of €2 is made to “Mécènes et Parrains d’Abeilles”, French association, to sow 3 to 4m2 of melliferous flowers in French agricultural wasteland.
This sustainable yoga mat fits to a vegan lifestyle !
If you wish to buy a yoga mat that is truly committed to a better world, I’m definitely the best yoga mat to fit your values ! Good yoga mats are good, good yoga mats with good values are better !
