    About The Village

    We're friends with Sree, whose cousin and his family make our eco-friendly yoga mats in a small village in Kerala, India, using an age-old hand-weaving technique. Making traditional textiles this way is this community's way of life, and has been so for centuries. Everything that goes into making this mat - the organic cotton, natural rubber and Ayurvedic herbs - are grown locally by the community. The entire process is solar-powered and uses only rain harvested water. Any wastewater is returned to the soil to grow crops. This mat is so much more than the mat itself and what goes into it. It is part of supporting an entire community from farmers to artisans to drivers. Perhaps our most treasured product and relationship.

    Taking proper care of your mat will give it a long and fruitful life.

    Breaking It In

    There's no better way to break in your mat than to use it. The surface of all yoga mats require a little rough and tumble before they develop their grip - which over time wears uniquely to you. Organic cotton is no different in that respect - use your mat regularly and see the grip improve day after day.

    Smell

    The mat is dyed with locally-grown Ayurvedic herbs which not only impart their beneficial properties into the mat but also their wonderful smell. The smell will fade over time - the more you wash it, the faster the process. You will find that due to the antiseptic properties of the herbs, the bacteria that cause sweat to smell will be killed, keeping your mat fresh for longer.

    Wash & Dry

    Hand wash with mild soap and warm water, then hang out to dry in the sunshine or on a drying rack. The mat is machine washable on a gentle cycle, but we recommend hand washing if possible.

    Roll Up

    Always roll up with the bottom on the inside. This ensures your mat lays flat and doesn't curl up when you practice.

    Honest Yoga Mat

    I love my new yoga mat. It looks good, smells good and feels good. I kept it next to me for the first day as I loved the smell so much! It folds up neat/small for carrying, stays in place once down and doesn't crawl across the floor like some do ... I love the fabric and the feel of it under my feet ... it multitasks as a Pilates mat..... for me it ticks all the boxes.

    Fabulous Yoga Mat

    The yoga mat was a gift for my daughter. She loves it. It's non slip so great for yoga practice. It smells fantastic as it is infused with herbs. I may need to treat myself to one! 😊

    Honestly lovely yoga mat

    I’ve been practicing on my new honest yoga mat for a couple of weeks now and am loving the organic feel of it and also how light it is, it will travel really well I think and also folds square so you don’t need a long bag for travel. The natural rubber backing is excellent and non-slip, and the cross-threads aid slippage on top of the mat, although a little moisture on the hands always helps. The infused herbs give off a nice delicate aroma that reminds me this is an organic piece of craftsmanship. Top drawer thanks
