Taking care of your vegan suede and microfibre yoga mats

We love our vegan suede yoga mats (hello leopard print), they are supportive, grippy, soft and durable. With a thermal ink-based dye finish, you can ensure the colour depth and print will stay and with regular cleaning and maintenance, you can keep your yoga mat in optimal condition for many years to come!

The 4mm vegan suede mats, made with a natural rubber base offer a solution to the rising demand for a sustainable yoga mat, that also offers a luxurious, premium finish.



Key benefits

  • Luxury feel: the soft, tactile finish supports you in your practice as well the velvet feel will help you make your flow comfortable and enjoyable.
  • Durable: the natural rubber base is not only an eco-friendly choice, but also durable and sturdy. This mat won’t slip and move, to offer a strong base for your practice. The mat also rolls out and stays flat, no curling corners!
  • High grip: vegan suede mats get grippier with moisture, therefore as you sweat the mat will continue to ensure you stay in place during your downward dog! This also makes the mat a perfect companion for fitness workouts, Pilates and hot yoga enthusiasts.

Environmentally friendly

  • Recyclable and biodegradable: The rubber base and microfibre materials are both suitable for recycling and biodegradable, breaking down over time and reducing landfill waste.
  • Renewable: natural rubber is made from a renewable material and is sustainably harvested, making it the eco-friendly yoga mat choice.
  • Non-toxic: this yoga mat uses natural materials, no PVC, PU or TPE. The colour is thermal dyed.

Home and studio practice

The vegan suede and natural rubber mats are heavier to carry than traditional PVC/TPE yoga mats, they weigh 3.3kg per mat, however they do arrive with a handy carry strap (or see our yoga bag range) to help you transport your mat from home to studio. Our microfibre mats have a lighter base and weigh just 2.4kg per mat and therefore may be a lighter choice for travel.

The vegan suede mats are the perfect durable, cleanable, hygienic choice for a studio mat range.

Care guide and maintaining grip

These mats are very easy to clean and keep in great condition, even with regular use over time.

To clean a vegan suede yoga mat and restore its grip, you can follow these steps.

Regular Cleaning: After each yoga session, lightly shake your mat to remove any loose debris or dirt. This prevents particles from embedding into the mat's fibres.

Spot Cleaning: For light stains or areas with reduced grip, use a damp cloth with gentle soap or a vinegar-water solution to spot clean the affected areas. Gently rub the cloth over the stains or areas that need extra grip.

Deep Cleaning: Periodically, especially after hot yoga or intense HIIT workouts, it's a good idea to give your mat a more thorough cleaning. Use a mixture of mild soap and water, applied sparingly, to a damp cloth. Wipe down the entire mat's surface, including both sides. Rinse thoroughly with clean water to remove any soap residue.

Avoid Harsh Chemicals: Never use abrasive or harsh cleaning chemicals on your yoga mat. They can damage the suede surface or degrade the natural rubber base.

Drying: After cleaning, allow your yoga mat to air dry completely before rolling it up. Avoid exposing it to direct sunlight or extreme heat, as this can damage the materials. Hang it over a railing or chair to ensure proper airflow.

Regular Maintenance: To maintain the grip on your yoga mat, regularly brush the vegan suede surface with a soft-bristled brush. This helps to remove dirt, oils, and sweat build up that could affect the mat's grip.

Storage: When not in use, store your mat in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. Rolling it with the suede side out can help maintain its shape and minimize fraying.

Use a Towel: Consider using a yoga towel or mat towel during hot yoga sessions. This not only provides additional grip but also helps protect your mat from excessive moisture and sweat.

Avoid Shoes: Keep your yoga mat a shoe-free zone to prevent unnecessary wear and tear. Shoes can cause premature fraying and damage to the suede surface. Try to keep to bare feet or indoor only trainers.

Rotation: To ensure even wear, rotate your yoga mat regularly. This will distribute the pressure and maintain its durability.
