The ORIGINAL ECO YOGA MAT is made of Jute and Natural Rubber. The Eco Yoga Mat is the only sticky mat which contains no synthetic materials of any kind. These are totally PVC free and the rubber offers an ultra slip-resistant surface. They are hand washable and 100% biodegradable. Because the Jute fabric helps to absorb sweat, the mat remains sticky even when wet. Some individuals are allergic to rubber (latex), though this mat attempts to minimize latex dust. Mats made of rubber may not last as long as synthetic mats, especially if they’re exposed to the sun.
The Original Eco mat is the most earth-conscious and eco-friendly yoga mat option available today.
Instructions for care:
Keep your ecoYoga mat clean by regularly wiping it down with a damp cloth. A dry dusty mat will lose grip. For a full wash use traditional woolens method: soak/shower then roll within a towel to remove water excess. Hang to dry. You can also machine wash with a drop of detergent in a cold non-spin cycle. Do not tumble dry. Extensive washing will dry out and loosen the jute plant fibers. Natural rubber is sensitive to extreme heat and heat and UV-rays so store out of direct sunlight and avoid contact with oils.
