100% Natural Non-Slip Yoga Mat - 100% Vegan

The combination of two natural ecological materials for a healthy and comfortable practice! No trees are cut down or damaged to obtain a natural yoga mat. While cork is harvested from the bark of cork oaks (Quercus super), natural rubber is extracted from the sap of the Hevea brasiliensis (rubber tree). The inherent properties of the natural materials that go into making your Achamana rug are durability, natural resilience and low maintenance.

Rubber has an enormous ability to capture carbon dioxide while being a leading socio-environmental agent. Its weak point is the negative impact on bio-diversity than its large-scale mono-culture, but all things considered, rubber remains, by far, more ecological and undoubtedly healthier for the environment and our health than PVC, plastic, EVA foam or vinyl often used for mats and bags usually offered in yoga shops.

Guaranteed free of any additives, solvents or carcinogenic and toxic materials. Phthalate-free, PVC-free and azo-dye-free production - Designs engraved with ecological water-based inks.

Premium materials for optimal comfort and safety

Specially designed mats for those who are passionate about the daily practice of yoga and the yogic lifestyle. They are not only 100% natural, but offer immediate grip on the ground and an exponential non-slip surface.

Premium dense gum for high end latex yoga mat

rubber is also an excellent carbon absorber and supports more than ten million people in rural Asia.

It is biodegradable and recyclable, no plastic used in production.

Cork, a high-performance and ecological material

Lightweight, waterproof, compressible, elastic, good thermal and acoustic insulation. It is practically rot-proof and very resistant to friction and traction.

Its use dates back to the earliest ages of human history. We find its first references, for fishing equipment in Egypt and Persia, 3000 years before Jesus Christ.

It germinates every nine years, the lifespan of a tree can be up to two hundred years. Trees that replenish their bark absorb up to five times more CO2.

No trees felled for an eco-friendly material. It is still today very often harvested by a rural population in the Mediterranean basin.
