Haiku Designs is happy to introduce a line of Yoga mats featuring a distinctive comfortable feel, made from all natural long staple cotton, hand tufted, and hand stitched as the perfect and healthy alternative for you and your yoga practice.
Today, most Yoga mats are made from petrochemical foams that off gas a whole list of toxic ingredients through the air and through contact with the skin. When combined with humid and hot conditions and with repeated impact use these mats begin to break down releasing toxic chemicals through touch and through the air. Many are proven carcinogens.
We feel saying no to chemicals and yes to all natural cotton is generally a good thing, and when you add in the comfort and feel of our all-natural yoga mats, it is a Really, Really good thing. Today many yoga practitioners and long term yoga students are moving away from the traditional yoga mats made from petroleum products and moving towards natural material by practicing on padded style cotton mats. Great for shoulder stands, Hero pose, or almost any Yoga Asana.
Why Choose Haiku Designs' All-Natural Yoga Products?
Our Yoga, and massage mats offer a woven cotton cover, which is then stuffed, with unbleached, natural long staple cotton. Unbleached cotton does not use any chlorine or dioxin bleaches in the manufacturing process leaving the cotton chemical free. The advantage of the long staple cotton is that it holds its natural structure over many years, eliminating dips or soft spots making it ideal for mats and futons. We then hand tuft the mat to ensure longevity, and durability.
For the final step we take the finished mat and cover it in a washable, removable cotton cover offered in your choice of several beautiful colors. This allows you to keep your Yoga, Shiatsu or Thai mat in optimal fresh and clean condition even after several days of intense hot yoga.
Hand made here in the United States by a small business using Eco-friendly materials.
Say Yes to you and to your Yoga practice and No to chemicals with the Haiku Designs all natural yoga Mats.
Your Downward Dog will appreciate it.
