  • 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 Finally a mat that’s long enough! I got this mat a month ago and I am loving it. It is so long, I am 6’1” and can lay down with space on each end. Nice and thick. I love the material, no slipping! There was a bit of a rubbery smell which is normal, and most of it has faded. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 1st Yoga Mat I really like the mat I bought. It is grips well and feels heavy. This is the first yoga mat I have bought after only using the community ones at the gym. Very smelly, definitally needed to cleaned/aired out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and nonslip!! Such a beautiful mat, looks hand painted really and makes me feel like I'm on the ocean!! It has made my practice 10x better. Although not super lightweight, it is not THAT heavy as some reviews say. I carried it easily to and from class. Also, smell is not noticeable as some reviews say, it goes away within one day. super nonslip and sturdy, overall perfect mat that I will keep for years!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great traction, hold, a little heavy This mat is a bit on the heavier side, be sure to check the weight amount if that is a concern for you. It was worth it to me to buy a natural, strong mat. The grip is excellent even when I sweat so I feel safe and free to do whatever pretzel I can get myself into. This is a great quality mat and I highly recommend.

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!
