We are very excited to offer these quality eco yoga mats from an Australian company. We met up with the creators of this business in the Illawarra and they have honed their product to be a beautiful thing.
Then, we had a child, and moved interstate, but now, now: the mats have arrived!
The Mukti Grounded Mats are sleek and earthy and have a unique two-sided construction.
One side combines the moisture-absorbing and slip-reducing properties of natural, open cell rubber with the edgy grip of natural jute fibres. The other side provides a softer layer of natural rubber and cotton.
The reversible nature of this mat means that it suits all types of yoga at ambient temperature: from a sweaty flow to a more nurturing, restorative practice. Mukti mats are free from toxins, made from natural, sustainable resources, and are completely sweat shop free.
Each mat comes with a handy carrier strap included, RRP AUD $15.
These mats are 4mm thick, so they are great for home or going to class. The strap is handy for a commute, and you can use it as a belt for some poses.
I love the idea of providing an independent product. Plus, particularly when the Australian-US Dollar exchange rate is poor, it means that a quality eco mat is more affordable. The shipping costs on some US produced mats are very high at the moment, so it is another reason to love these Mukti mats.
