Our Honest Yoga Mat is made from 100% organic cotton with a natural rubber weave on the base. Each is made entirely by hand - using an age-old technique that takes 8-10 days per mat - representing artistry of the highest degree. Dyed with incredible smelling, locally-grown Ayurvedic herbs - these impart antiseptic, cleansing and calming properties into the fabric to enhance your practice. Furthermore, there are absolutely no chemicals used, the entire process is solar-powered and uses only rain harvested water.

When you choose an Honest Yoga Mat you support a traditional skill, a local community, yourself and the environment.

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 was so impressed with the Honest yoga mat over the last couple of years, so much better to exercise on a natural surface, rather than a synthetic mat. I just bought a second one as a present for someone else.

Outstanding!

So being over 50 and just starting my Yoga journey, I wanted to buy a mat that was of exceptional quality, natural, hand made, ethically sourced and would hopefully last me the rest of my days. I believe that I have found it. The quality of this mat is amazing and it has quickly become my favourite quiet space to practice Yoga, meditate and sometimes just to lie on and read a book. It is comfortable yet firm underfoot, does not slip at all and the woven ridges give great support in just the right places (it also smells awesome!). My wife raised her eyebrows when I said I wanted to spend £80 on a Yoga mat, now I get the feeling there will be a second one on order soon. It is so refreshing to find a company and products of such quality and values in a market so often filled with cheap, disposable products. Delivery was super quick, communication was excellent and I will be back to buy more from this company who clearly stand by their ethos. Buy with confidence my Friends :-)

Love this mat

So soft and comfy to practice on, smells amazing. If practicing on a hard surface like wood or stone I'd recommend placing a normal rubber mat underneath, unless of course you prefer a hard surface to practice on!
