What is natural rubber?

Natural rubber has a very large and decisive advantage when it comes to sustainability: it is a natural, renewable and biodegradable raw material. Rubber can be obtained from natural rubber trees over many years without having to clear the trees.

What special features does natural rubber have?

The material of natural rubber is very elastic without chemical additives, as well as tear-resistant and durable. This means your yoga mat can withstand all your yoga exercises and, thanks to the water-repellent material, ensures perfect support even during sweaty asanas. Sliding on the yoga mat is history.

FSC certified natural rubber

We are pleased that our Classic Mat is already made with completely FSC©-certified natural rubber. Through regular controls, the certification ensures that the raw materials come from forests with fair and safe working conditions and that the environment is not polluted by pesticides. FSC attaches great importance to sustainable forestry and therefore regularly trains farmers on topics such as the regeneration of the ecosystem.

Consciously avoiding harmful pesticides contributes to protection of local ecosystems, improves the yield of natural rubber trees in the long term, binds more CO2 and can lead to new sources of income.

Through FSC© certification, we together support the livelihood of rubber farmers without contributing to deforestation or violating the rights of workers.

Due to its natural properties, natural rubber offers unique slip resistance. Combined with JuteGripTech© - our jute weave on the surface - each of our mats offers you the best slip resistance and safety, even during sweaty asanas.

Is my natural rubber mat hygienic?

Due to the closed surface structure of natural rubber, all of our yoga mats are naturally hygienic and antibacterial.

How do I clean my natural rubber yoga mat?

To clean your mat, we recommend a water-apple cider vinegar mixture in a 3:1 ratio and an essential oil (10-20 drops) of your choice. Our tip: Tea tree oil has a particularly nourishing and antibacterial effect.

Why does my yoga mat smell so strongly of rubber?

The smell of your yoga mat is like that of a new book. Natural rubber is a natural raw material, without added chemicals or other fragrances. Let your mat be rolled out and air out for 1-2 days and the smell will disappear into thin air.
