2.95 kg; 66 cm x 180 cm x 5 mm. 71 x 26 x 3/16. Made from non-Amazon harvested, natural tree rubber Most durable, eco-friendly mat on the market Developed over 3 years by yoga teachers Designed to provide the ultimate combination of cushion and grip No PVC or toxic plasticizers. Tri Layer Technology for optimal combination of grip, durability and slip-resistance. Grip & Durability (Top Layer): Sea Grass surface texture is naturally grippy; the closed-cell surface keeps out moisture (sweat) from seeping into the mat and breeding bacteria for better durability.The Manduka eKO mat is the only choice for those who want a high-performance, durable yoga mat and are passionate about protecting our planet. The top surface is an innovative, proprietary closed-cell natural rubber. The sea-grass texture finish and superior cushioning are kind to your body and the environment. This natural rubber mat uses a toxic-free softening process and is completely free of foaming agents and plasticizers found in other mats.
The eKO represents a bright future for eco-friendly yoga mats - it leaves behind no footprint in landfills, but will definitely make a lasting impression in the studio. To Clean: We recommend using Manduka Mat Restore or a diluted organic cider vinegar wash (50/50) and a damp cloth or sponge.It is recommended that you DO NOT put the eKO mat in the washing machine as it will encourage the material to break down (biodegrade). To Store: Do not leave the mat exposed to excessive amounts of sunlight. If wet, allow the mat to dry before rolling up. Through Manduka's manufacturing process, the eKO Series mats are 99% latex free, and safe to use for people with latex sensitivities. The eKO Mat is made from sustainably harvested tree rubber.
Unlike other rubber mats available today, the foaming agents used to create the eKO are non-toxic. This means that no toxic chemicals have gone into the manufacturing process to soften rubber; when the eKO mat is disposed of and biodegrades, it will not leave behind a toxic residue. Additionally, instead of using synthetic polyester for reinforcement, we have chosen to use a blend of polyester and natural cotton.
