  • Use & Care

    To Clean: All eKO series mats can be cleaned by wiping down the mat with Manduka’s Natural Rubber Mat Wash. 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.

    Please note - the salt method is not intended for eKO mats.

  • Sustainability

    The eKO Lite 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 Lite 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 Lite Mat is a high performance mat that is also good for the environment.

eKO® Lite Yoga Mat 4mm - Maldive

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. To keep your mat in the best condition, visit the use & care section.

eKO® Lite Yoga Mat 4mm - Maldive is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great studio mat I bought this as an alternative to my Manduka Pro for studio practice. I love my Pro, but it now lives at home. I chose the eKO Lite because it's made out of sustainable materials and much lighter for carrying back and forth and takes up slightly less space. I can tell a difference in the thickness and size vs. practicing on my Pro, but this was definitely worth the investment. It's grippy in dog dog during flow classes and the closed cell technology is evident during hot ones. I did notice a strong smell as referenced in other reviews but after a few uses and wipe downs it went away.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this mat :) I like the surface of this mat better than the Pro or ProLite - it has a different texture that I prefer. Look at both fully zoomed in to see the difference. I did not notice the rubbery smell mentioned in other reviews. Light enough to carry while walking to work in the city Slippery coating wears off in a week of good usage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome upgrade I am in love with this mat. It doesn't move around or slip. My towel even sticks to it. Great for hot yoga. Bright, beautiful color and a welcome addition to my practice.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Still getting used to it Definitely good durable quality but the smell is intense, even after airing it out for days and days. It certainly meets all the gripping expectations but it's so hard to wipe dust or dirt from it (I don't know if there are specific cleaning instructions). I have no doubt this mat will last me for decades but if anyone can suggest how to get the smell out, I would like this mat more. I just don't think this is Manduka's best mat.
