SILVER WINNER + EDITOR’S CHOICE
Safe – Made from sustainable, non-toxic materials. Tree rubber, jute, binchotan charcoal, silver chloride.
Responsible – Whilst LovEarth is a small business, they diligently work towards a mat that is green to its core. They continue to work towards sourcing organic fair trade suppliers for the rubber and jute. Their new inclusion of Polygiene (and acceptance by this company as a partner) means all mats include a world-class product based on recyclable silver that lengthens the life of their mat, removes odours and is antiviral and antimicrobial.
LovEarth sends their yoga mats wrapped in recycled cardboard. The brand encourages people to take their old yoga mats to one of their drop-off partners or alternately pop their pre-loved mat back into the recycled cardboard packaging it arrived in and send it back to LovEarth to re-distribute and reincarnate into a new useful life. Those that do are rewarded with a YogaHive Pass.
This is the perfect travel mat! It’s thin, grippy, and you’re even able to fold it so it’s perfect for packing into a suitcase! I love the non-slip texture, it’s very grounding in my practice. It unrolls flat straight out of the box — fabulous! It also comes with a cute little carry bag which is stylish and convenient!
I love this mat. It is extremely grippy and gives just the right amount of cushioning for me. I love that it is completely dye-free and I think I breathe even deeper in savasana knowing it is not only non-toxic but compostable and made by a company doing their bit to change the world. They’ll even take my old yoga mat and organise for it to be reused in some way.
This is such a beautiful yoga mat, both to look at and practice upon. What strikes me most is how grippy it is! It’s soft and cushiony (despite being super-thin and travel-sized) and I love the natural, non-dyed rubber colour and weave pattern of the mat. An absolute joy to practice upon. And I love that it’s machine washable!
This mat is so grippy which is the first thing I look for in a yoga mat. I am obsessed with knowing I can put this mat into the washing machine!
