  • 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.

eKO® Yoga Mat 5mm is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 160.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent mat straight out of the box I was shopping for a travel mat to replace one I lost when I saw the eKo mat. I’m thrilled with my purchase. It’s the Goldilocks mat; not too thick and not too thin. The grip is perfect, no break-in period needed. Pretty blue color. Too heavy for travel but a reasonable weight for transporting to classes

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good cushion. I liked the Manduka 5mm yoga mat so much that I bought a 2nd one to have on hand when I visit my daughter in NY. It provides a great cushion for my aging knees and the grip is good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just as described! I purchased this mat about a month ago and I am impressed! I was researching all of the top end yoga mats and decided on this one even though the price was a bit more. The mat is not slippery at all, has great support yet it has needed cushion for knee pain. I would recommend this mat to anyone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So glad I made this purchase! I really enjoy my Manduka Eko yoga mat. The thickness is great on my knees and the soles of my feet. The mat is easy to clean, can take a beating, and is visually pleasing -- I get a lot of compliments on it. My only issue is that it smells like a tire for a while, but with a couple of cleanings and being aired out, the smell will become less overwhelming. Overall, this mat was a great buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More than I expected I have only used the mat twice so far BUT it has been more than I expected based on the reviews I read: 1. The rubber smell is NOT that bad and it did not stick on my clothing. 2. The mat is sticky. I could not believe how well I was able to hold on to downward dog and really bend into it. I used my cheap yoga mat for 2 years and never thought I was able to hold DD that well. 3. It is heavy but not something that bothers me. I don't walk with it around town so I don't even use a strap for it. I definitely would get a strap or bag if that was the case. 4. The length is perfect for me (6'0")! 5. I should have done this 2 years ago.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great mat! It is really, really grippy so I don't have to worry one bit about slipping. Love the color and the feel of this mat -- the new rubber smell is slow to go away, though.

Three questions. 1, does eKo smells strong? How to get rid of the smell? 2, can I buy both eKo and pro and return one with free return after I compare them? 3, does amazon carry the authentic mundoca mat as here? 

Asked by: Ichris
Yes. It does have a strong odor; I left mine outdoors, out of the sun, for over 2 days and the odor was mostly gone. It no longer smells at all - after several weeks.

Does this mat eko yoga mat 5mm provide enough cushion for your knees or should I go with a thicker mat? Thank you. 

Asked by: Jadie
That would depend on a couple factors, the sensitivity of your knees and of course how much pressure your body is exerting on your knees. It has been a wonderful mat in my experience. Haven’t ever had issues with knee problems on it. Only you know yourself and the way your knees react to certain surfaces though.

I know nothing about yoga mats. My Girlfriend needs one good enough to travel with is this one foldable and rollable?! 

Asked by: Scarlett
Yes! Rollable and foldable. I carry mine around everywhere. Mats like this are super high quality though, so it's a little bit heavier than what most people are used to. But it's still easy to travel with!
