The Jute Yoga Mat from Yoga Direct is made from jute, a natural plant fiber grown primarily in South East Asia. Jute is a highly versatile fiber, combining breathability with high tensile strength. This mat is created by combining jute fibers with natural rubber tree materials, giving the mat the same great performance and ''stickiness'' of our conventional yoga mats. The result is a mat that looks distinctive, is highly functional, and yet has an eco-friendly footprint. With this mat, you will not be compromising on the sticky, cushioned texture you count on for your most strenuous yoga routines.
