FAQ

Are your mats suitable for hatha yoga?

Our mats have a smoother surface but are more durable than traditional PVC yoga mats. These mats are not sticky and are best suited for non sweaty, gentler types of yoga. For a very sweaty practice, we recommend using a yoga towel in tandem with our mats. You can also use the underside of the mat, which has more grip.

To clean your mat, we recommend using a 50/50 mix of water and vinegar. This is a great way to naturally disinfect and restore the rubber’s texture and color. Try not to leave your mat out in the sun for prolonged exposure as it can break down the natural rubber.

Yoga and meditation are personal journeys; everyone's practice is unique and has its own needs.  Please use these mats for your practice responsibly.  Click here for our full disclaimer.


Are your meditation pillows washable?

Yes. We recommend spot cleaning should you happen to spill something on your meditation pillow. When you want a deeper clean, our pillows have zippers to pour out the buckwheat. You will need to pour the buckwheat in to a large bag or bin and then refill the pillow using a funnel ( easily made by cutting the bottom off a plastic cup) after it is washed and dried. The pillows can be washed in a machine using cold water and regular soap. Air drying is recommended. We find that customers tend to rarely if ever fully wash their meditation pillows when exclusively used for their specific purpose.  

Where are your products made?

We are based in West Los Angeles and our meditation pillows are sewn with love in our little studio above the Guru Ram Das Ashram, where they soak up all the good vibes. Our non toxic yoga mats are made with natural rubber and PVC in China and printed with non toxic inks in Orange, CA. 

Are your yoga mats non toxic?

Our mats are certified non toxic and are made from natural rubber and PVC. Our printer uses non toxic inks. 


Where do these designs come from ?

All our designs are created by Jamila Starwater Tazewell with the intention to create sacred spaces through art.  Every design is inspired by the beauty of the natural world and the infinite inner / outer space we are all floating in.
