This mandala cork mat was designed by Anna Jankowska, an artist and fashion designer from Poland.
Anna’s inspiration behind this beautiful design. The word ‘mandala’ is derived from the Sanskrit word for ‘circle. In Buddhism and Hinduism, it is a symbol that represents the universe and its energy. Mandala’s symmetrical, complex designs are used in mindful, meditative practice as each mandala is usually drawn with an intention and provides a focal point for meditation. We can understand mandala as a never-ending narration about balancing space, boundary and energy. The mandala and geometrical lines were drawn with the intention to keep a yoga practitioner concentrated and centered, but also cheerful and positive. The outline of the mandala is subtle, light to keep the practitioner more focused on space and energy than on the boundaries.

9 Unique features of our mandala cork yoga mat
Grippier with sweat
Our yoga mat has a cork surface with the ability to absorb moisture. So, you do not have to lie in the pool of your sweat or worry about sliding over it. It also protects you from any slips and trips during your postures and sessions. This non-slip cork becomes grippier when wet, and is impermeable to water.
This Mandala Cork Yoga Mat has 5mm thickness to provide your hands and knees accurate and ample support. The widthalso helps cushion without wobbling. It has an ideal surface for the right balance with comfort in all postures during your sessions.
On the mat alignment guides
You do not have to second guess your posture alignments anymore. We have created beautiful and functional alignment cues based on key alignment reference points. These cues help with accurate postures and alignment during yoga practice. The Mandala provides you with a focal point for meditation while keeping you cheerful and positive.
Our yoga mat is suitable for all shapes and sizes. Tall people find it hard to get a long yoga mat. Therefore, we have designed our yoga mat that is extra-long and wide with measurements of 72″ x 24″ x 5mm.
Our team brings you the best quality of non-slip natural cork from the farms of Portugal. It has the highest grade of durability than any other product. This cork then coalesces with our eco-friendly foam. Whether you are a novice or an intense yoga practitioner, our Mandala Cork Yoga Mat offers durability for all levels.
From sustainable farming
We take pride in the fact that not a single tree is cut down or harmed to harvest cork for our mats; rather, the bark is stripped by hand every nine years. The tree continues to grow, flourish, and reproduce more bark after each harvest.
Clean and germ-free
Cork does not mold or rot and stays naturally clean as it is a natural antimicrobial, which means it eliminates bacteria, germs, & smells. It provides a clean surface with a natural smell, & it is hygienic enough to place your body and face during yoga and Pilates.
Our mats are non-toxic, as they contain no harmful PVC, and are odorless. We are proud to bring you a product that is friendly to mother earth and its environment.
The mats’ natural ingredients allow them to be recycled and decomposed without producing any toxic waste. So, every breath you take on your Mandala Cork Yoga Mat is fresh and in tune with Mother Nature.
