The Most Eco Friendly Yoga Mats in the World

That's our goal. A goal we work towards every single day by creating beautiful, sustainable and functional yoga mats and accessories from organic cork and natural materials. And by planting a native tree for every order. Join us on our journey to create more eco-friendly, high-quality yoga mats & props accessible to everyone.

Our yoga mats are non-slip, antimicrobial & sustainable

Non Slip Grip

Cork is unique. Its grip gets better as it gets wetter. The cork yoga mat has great grip to start with, but it gets even better when you start sweating. No more slipping during hot yoga.

Naturally Antimicrobial

A regular yoga mat can carry a ton of bacteria and germs. Cork is antimicrobial. The yoga mat's top cork layer naturally kills off microbes, keeping the yoga mat clean and smelling fresh.

Sustainably Sourced

We source all our cork from Portugal using an environmentally friendly process that doesn't harm any trees. All yoga mats are shipped plastic-free. A native tree is planted for every order.

What teachers have to say about our Yoga Mats

The best yoga mats in New Zealand

"Happy to find good looking, natural yoga mats to retail to our members. They are ideal for a sweaty practice, no need for a towel and quick to dry. I use mine regularly in the heated room and love the feel and quality."

- Annie Fitzmaurice, Manager, Hot Yoga Wellington

Best yoga mat I ever had

"We are loving our Valka Yoga Mats and so is our community of yogis. The mats feel so lovely on the skin, are grippy and never smell. I’d recommend them to anyone, by far the best yoga mat I ever had."
