Metta Mats is committed to making the world's most vibrant, highest performing, environmentally friendly yoga mats in the world. 25% of every sale goes directly towards each independent artist. We make all of our mats in our own shop in Philadelphia, in a clean, air-conditioned, and happy work environment.
The artwork for our Metta Mats are created by independent artists. Our goal is to fuse this art with yoga to help inspire openness, mindfulness, and growth throughout your own practice. These high-performing mats are made from natural tree rubber and the surface of the mat is made from a groundbreaking, non-slip material that grips and prevents slipping.
We spent years developing a unique, high-performance surface material for our mats.
The artwork is fully encased inside of an environmentally-friendly material that protects the artwork, accentuates the colors, and has the perfect amount of grip.
"I started using dye sublimation to apply artwork to products in 2013. I noticed that yoga mats made this way had somewhat dull images and the fabric surface of the mats were not well suited for actual practice in yoga. After several years of collaborating with a few engineers and consulting with multiple yoga instructors, I knew I had stumbled upon something special. The first reaction from all of our product-testing yogis was genuine surprise when they felt the mat for the first time."
