Natural rubber is a renewable and organic raw material that is grown in Southeast Asia and South America. Compared to synthetic rubber it does not contain petroleum or other chemicals. Due to its natural composition, it is well suited for use in products that come into contact with the skin. Its robust nature makes it hard-wearing and durable. The microfiber is made from recycled PET bottles. Thus, part of the material for our design yoga mats was developed from plastics that are already in circulation. The printing inks are water-based, the anti-slip surface coating is resin-based.
Basically, we should be aware that any type of consumption leaves an ecological footprint. There is hardly a product that covers 100% of our needs for contemporary sustainability in all criteria. That is why it is important to make a conscious decision and to strive for long-term use. Your yoga mat should also be a long-term companion of your yoga practice.
