About Us / Product Details

Our Mission

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.

Overview

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.

Features

  • The surface has a supple, grippy texture that is completely waterproof. Sweat can easily be washed or rinsed right off the mat
  • 5 lbs; 72” long; 24” wide; 4 mm thick
  • The mat's base is made from natural tree-based rubber and the surface material is LEED certified, water-based grip surface that is very durable.
  • High Density Cushion designed for joint protection and versatility on carpet, cement or hardwood floors.
  • Latex and PVC free
                                                            

Use & Care

• To Store or Travel: It is best to store your Metta Mat unrolled and flat, but for long-term compact storage or travelling, roll your Metta Mat image side facing outwards. Prolonged storage rolled inward will result in the edges curling.
• To Break In: No break in required for your Metta Mat!
• To Clean: We recommend using any non-solvent household cleaner and a damp cotton cloth or sponge. Diluted Vinegar is an excellent cleaner. DO NOT USE BLEACH.
DO NOT PUT it in the washing machine. Please hang or air dry. Avoid prolonged exposure to sunlight. DO NOT DRY in a machine drier. Avoid abrading or scrubbing your Metta Mats surface.
• If you are ever unsure of a cleaning method, feel free to contact us for the best recommendations and advice for cleaning.
                                                                         

Eco-Friendly

A Few Words From Our Founder

"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."
