Jute is a natural fibre from a vegetable plant, grown mainly in India, Bangladesh and China. It is a sustainable resource because it only takes 4 to 5 months to grow to maturity. Jute consumes carbon dioxide, cleaning the air and jute leaves are a rich soil conditioner. Whilst jute top reinforces the mat, its breathability helps it absorb sweat and adds additional traction and comfort as well. There is no need for a towel.
The natural yoga mat is created by combining the jute fibres with phthalate PER (Polymer Environmental Resin) which is is eco friendly containing no PVC, heavy metals or formaldehyde, it is resistant to mildew and static-free.
The mats are durable with a pure natural smell. Can be washed in tub or wiped down with a clean cloth with mild detergent. Machine washable but the mat will wear faster. Do not put in dryer. Fully biodegradable, may be composted in a hot compost pile.
Recommended for ashtanga, power, vinyasa, yin, hatha, anusara, sivananda yoga, pilates and stretch.
