: These mats are made from natural organic cotton fibres (95%), grown using methods and materials that have a low impact on the environment, without the use of toxic and persistent pesticides and synthetic fertilisers. These fibres are blended with a little jute (5%) to give the mats a unique texture.
Herbal Plant Dyed: The organic cotton has been infused with natural plants & herbs that give therapeutic benefits, according to ancient Indian Ayurvedic principles.The base is made from a blend of multiple herbs such as turmeric, neem, aloe vera, anatoo seeds & karisalankanni leaf.
The main herb that gives this mat its signature dark blue colour is Indigo leaf.
Handwoven: Skilled weavers use traditional handloom techniques to produce an intricate product.
Socially Empowering: Rural artisans in India hand-craft these mats. Purchasing one of these contributes to a wellness fund for the individual weaver & wider community support.
Multi-Purpose: Not just a yoga mat! This natural cotton mat dual functions as a beautiful eco rug for the house.
This mat is suitable for a gentle beginner's yoga practice, stretching & meditation It is not intended for vigorous practice.
Please note that the texture of this mat varies slightly from piece to piece due to its handwoven natural composition.
One side of the mat has a natural rubber coating which makes it a little stickier. We advise that being the downside of the mat as it will create a firmer floor grip.
Raised cotton weave tractions lines at both ends of the mats provide hand and feet grip support during practice.
Hand wash in cold water only and leave to dry naturally in the shade. Over-exposure to the sun can cause discolouration to the natural dyes.
Do not machine wash as that may cause the mat to lose shape.
