Hand-woven from 100% organically grown European hemp.
Machine washable in a garment bag in cold water; wash separately from other items. Lay flat to dry.
Nice thick fabric, soft to the touch. Cozy 41 oz./sq. yard weight. More absorbent after first wash.
Best used on carpeted or coir flooring, or with a non-PVC sticky mat backing (see below for our selection of natural rubber mats). Great for hot yoga (on top of a "sticky" mat or surface) because the hemp absorbs moisture and perspiration, unlike sticky mats, which get soggy and slippery on contact with the skin.
If you are looking for a natural, eco-friendly alternative to sticky synthetic yoga mats full of all manners of chemicals, then our Organic Hemp Yoga & Meditation Mats maybe for you. Our 100% Hemp Yoga & Meditation Mats are made from certified organic European hemp that is processed without chemicals of any kind for true purity and environmental sustainability.
You'll love our organic hemp yoga meditation mats if you're looking to lie on something natural, organic, and soft during your yoga session so that you can really let go of worries about synthetic and dusty carpets and be in the moment (many yoga studios have carpeted or other synthetic, dust-filled flooring).
Of course, for meditation, the type of floor is not an issue. For a sitting meditation, you may want to fold the mat twice or three times so you have a thicker cushion under while you sit. Rolled up, the hemp yoga and meditation mats make a great impromptu pillow and lower back support too. We've also found that the Eco Hemp Yoga Meditation Mats are good for the second (eco hemp mat to lie on) and third (folded up for knee support) of the Five Tibetan Rejuvenation Rites as bare floors can be hard on the knees in the long run.
Those who practice yoga on hardwood floors would do best to get widely available naturally-processed latex backing that they can sew onto our hemp yoga mats or simply put under the hemp mats when needed.
The heart of yoga is oneness — unity with self and the world around us. What better way to be there than starting with synthetic-free, plastic-free, chemical-free, and toxin-free organic hemp mats on which to perform your asanas?

Now you can have the best of both worlds, at a discount!
Natural rubber yoga mats are practical and a lot more natural and safer than PVC yoga mats, yet they still have a "rubber" smell that bother many people. Some people are downright allergic to the smell of natural rubber. By putting our 100% hemp yoga mat on top of a natural rubber yoga mat, you greatly reduce the smell from the natural rubber. And since our hemp is organically grown and processed without heavy metals and harsh chemicals, you can feel safe inhaling and practicing without having to worry about out-gassing and contact with rubber. In this discount set, you choose the color of the hemp yoga but the natural rubber mat is sold on a wildcard basis: you may get any color of the natural rubber yoga mat in the width you select. This set saves you money and helps us manage our inventory.

What's so bad about PVC or foam yoga mats?
According to the Center for Health, Environment, and Justice (which recommended removing PVC products such as vinyl shower curtains from store shelves in 2009), PVC products outgas 108 different chemicals within the first 28 days of use and continue to do so for a very long time: that "new" smell is the telltale sign of all those chemicals going into your lungs and skin. It's bad enough having to deal with chlorine and possible lead and mercury contamination in municipal water; the last thing you'd want to add to your list of daily exposure to chemicals is PVC-anything. PVC has been associated with many serious human ailments. Even conservative organizations have started to caution people against vinyl / PVC products.
There are two particularly harmful and unavoidable byproducts of PVC: Dioxin and PCBs. Dioxin is created during all phases of PVC production, as well as in its disposal by incineration or accidental fire. There is no "threshold" dose for dioxin. For dioxin, the lowest dose that causes hormonal action has not been found yet. It currently stands at about 1 part per trillion, but researchers have been unable to find the threshold using the most up-to-date advanced systems. It is thought to be the most toxic human-made chemical.
We quote from the study: "Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) plastic [products purchased at some of the big chains] all contain avoidable toxic chemicals including volatile organic compounds (VOCs), phthalates, organotins and metals. Some of these chemicals are volatile, so they are released into the air inside our homes... Some of these chemicals cause developmental damage as well as damage to the liver and central nervous, respiratory, and reproductive systems."
