  • Use & Care

    To Clean: All eKO series mats can be cleaned by wiping down the mat with Manduka’s Mat Restore Spray (a vinegar based solution) or a 50/50 mixture of water and organic apple cider vinegar. It is recommended that you DO NOT put your eKO mat in the washing machine, as it will encourage the material to break down. DO NOT soak or submerge in water and DO NOT use any type of soap for cleaning, as it will compromise the performance and integrity of the mat.

    To Store: Do not leave the mat exposed to direct sunlight. If wet, allow the mat to dry before rolling up.

  • Sustainability

    The eKO Mat is a natural yoga mat made from sustainably harvested tree rubber. Unlike other rubber mats available today, the foaming agents used to create the eKO are non-toxic. What this means is that no toxic chemicals have gone into the manufacturing process to soften the rubber. Additionally, instead of using synthetic polyester for reinforcement, we have chosen to use a blend of polyester and natural cotton. According to both customer feedback and published yoga mat reviews, the eKO Mat is a high performance mat that is also good for the environment.

eKO® Yoga Mat 5mm

The eKO Mat represents a bright future for the eco-friendly yoga mat. It leaves behind no footprint in landfills, but will definitely make a lasting impression in the studio. These natural rubber mats use a toxic-free softening process and are completely free of harmful foaming agents and plasticizers found in other mats.

Tri-Layer Technology offers an optimal combination of grip, durability, comfort, and performance:

Top Layer: Natural sealed-cell surface keeps out moisture and sweat from seeping into the mat and breeding bacteria.
Center Layer: Stretch-resistant scrim binds the unique layers together using a heating process which eliminates the need for toxic glues.
Bottom Layer: Thicker, bottom layer provides lightweight cushion and excellent loft for your practice! Discoloration can be a by-product of natural rubber products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful! I know these mats are a good chunk of money, but after using nearly every day for the past three weeks, I see why. I have been absolutely loving the quality. This is my second mat, my first one being a cheap $15 once, so it is 100% an upgrade. It is a bit heavier, but I actually love the weight. The only thing that's been slightly a nuisance is it seems to pick up and show dirt/dust, and my hands slip a little more easily now despite me being a light sweater, but it should be easily fixed with a small sweat towel. Other than that, my mat itself doesn't move at all, and it's the perfect length to move my entire 5'6" self. The tree rubber smell is a bit strong, but DOES wear off!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I did a lot of research and I think this is the best yoga mat. It's very grippy and has a good amount of cushion. I also love that is it made with sustainable, biodegradable materials (and not PVC). It has a slight rubber smell, but I'm totally fine with it because I know it's natural and not some weird plastic off-gassing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this mat! This is my second eKO Yoga Mat. The only reason I had to buy a second was because I left my first at a studio and someone walked away with it. It was 5 years old and looked almost brand new! I love the cushion of this mat, without it being difficult to do balancing poses, it has the right amount of stickiness and works well in hot yoga. It is a bit on the heavier side, but with the carrier it's not a problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No slipping EVER!! This is my second eKO Yoga mat and will not be the last! I have owned pro and pro-lite mats but tended to slip even though they appeared to be 'broken in'. I have never slipped on this mat and being over 6 foot tall the longer length is perfect!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So glad I went for it! I went with Manduka after one of my members told me how much she loved her Prolite mat (I'm a yoga instructor and still didn't have a great mat). I decided to go with the eKO mat because of it's sustainability and color options. The color wasn't quite as dark as the pictures show, it's a brighter more cerulean blue but still pretty none the less. But I love how grippy it is, my feet stick in place in the deepest warriors and it's thick enough to provide great support for my knees when I'm on the floor. It's a little heavy but I think that just indicates what great quality it is, I don't mind lugging it around. And I get so many comments on how much people love the color and pattern! So glad I finally got a great mat and this one will stay with me for a long time!
