Cork is a grounding, eco friendly, non-slip, all-natural material that's revolutionizing the way yoga is being practiced. Whether you're sweating in a hot yoga class or practicing outside on a warm summer day, you won't find a better grip on any mat.
Cork is unsurpassed in sustainability and is 100% natural, renewable, and recyclable. Its body-friendly properties mean that unlike most synthetic materials used in yoga mats, cork is naturally hypo-allergenic, antimicrobial, anti-fungal, and contains zero PVC's or harmful chemicals. You can also breathe easy knowing you won't find a toxic smell when you roll out your new mat.
Our cork comes from the bark of cork oak trees in Portugal, which produce more than 50% of all cork in the world. Cork is extracted from early May to late August, when the cork can be separated from the tree without causing permanent damage. A cork tree is typically harvested for the first time when it's about 25 years old. This process is repeated every 9 to 12 years. The tree will provide a harvest for approximately 200 years. No tree is ever cut down, which makes cork harvesting exceptionally sustainable.
YOURNEXXT cork mats were carefully designed with the intention of elevating your yoga and meditation practice without harming the environment.
