  • 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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice and grippy. I moved up to the eKO Mat after renting one from the yoga studio. If I do hot yoga and sweat a lot, I still need a towel. The padding feels good on my joints. The rubber odor is minimal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic - So Glad I Bought This This is a fabulous yoga mat! Sticky enough without feeling like plastic. The natural material feels different than the polyester mats - better in a good way. The 5mm thickness is the thinnest I go. Only down side is the mat is a little heavier than the plastic versions, but this is no big deal because of how much better it feels and not contributing the plastic world. I bought my husband the blue-ish version and he LOVES it. He said it is the best yoga mat he has ever had - including a pricier one he borrowed from a friend years ago. It has a slight odor at first, but this is just the natural rubber smell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wife said it was her best XMas present. Bought for my wife to replace old yoga/pilates mat and she absolutely loves the quality, eco friendly materials, and the fact that it stays on the floor and doesn't lose grip like some other mats do. We were so satisfied that we bought 2 additional (though 4mm eKO mats) for our daughters. Have and will continue to recommend Manduka mats.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love my eKO mat! I just bought my third eKO mat because I love them so much. I purchased my first eKO five years ago and that mat is still going strong. But I love them so much I want them in all the colors. I use the eKO light for traveling and loaning to visiting friends. I use the eKO 5mm for teaching and practice. This is also the mat I purchase as gifts for family and friends. Amazing grip, perfect padding, durable, and just plain pretty. I highly recommend this mat!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Prefer to Pro Mat After borrowing the studios mats for two months, I decided to buy my own. The surface of this mat is excellent for hot yoga because it isn't as slippery as the Pro mat. Plus, the 5mm is quite thick; I barely feel the floor underneath.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Large, Durable, and Soft I'm a tall yogi, so the extra length is very noticeable. This mat is also thick, so the extra padding is awesome! This is basically twice as nice as my old rubber mat. Thanks for the upgrade!

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!

Hello! Should this mat be used with a towel for hot yoga classes? Or is it fine without?

Asked by: Bryn
I have found that it's usually fine without a towel except in extra hot classes.

Hi there, may I know the weight of 5mm Eco mat? 

Asked by: Suaussi
It's 4.5 lbs. I am not sure what the other user meant in her answer, but it is not heavy compared to most everyday mats. This weight based on 5mm is very light in my opinion. The Manduka pro is 7.5 lbs and the 5mm Lululemon mat is 5.24 lbs. I consider this a great mat to take to and from the studio.
