- Extra Grip
Cork provides a durable, non-slip surface for a better stretch. Cork contains a natural waxy substance that doesn’t absorb water but actually improves grip when wet. So basically, the sweatier…the better!
- Perfect for hot yoga classes.
- Antimicrobial & Self Cleaning
- No Odor
Corks self-cleaning properties means a super fresh smelling mat all the time. No smelly yoga towels or antibacterial sprays needed!
- No Chemicals
Cork contains zero PVCs or any other harmful chemicals.
No trees are harmed! Cork is harvested every 8-9yrs from the regenerative bark of cork oak trees. That means they are never cut down + live up to 200+ years! Did you know cork oak trees stripped of their bark actually absorb 3-5x more carbon dioxide + release more oxygen? It is estimated that every year cork oak forests retain up to 14 million tonnes of carbon dioxide, helping to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, the main cause of climate change.
Cork is a very durable yoga mat surface, cork flooring is a popular choice for many gyms and studios because of its durability and added cushion. So be prepared to have your cork yoga mat hanging around for a long time!
- Socially Responsible
As well as providing a vital source of income for more than 100,000 people, it has the highest paid agricultural jobs and keeps people on their land.
Cork oak forests support one of the highest levels of biodiversity among forest habitats – on par with the Amazon and Andes.
