Everyone needs a good yoga mat, but a lot of them, maybe even most of them, are made overseas. BLEHH!
Think about this for a sec. When you hit the studio for a hot yoga sesh, you’re getting up close and personal with your yoga mat. Wouldn’t it be so much better to know where your mat came from before nearly every inch of your smokin’ hot yoga body rubs all over it? We certainly think so!
That’s EXACTLY why we’re telling you all about some ah-mazinggg American-made yoga mats. So you can feel totally relaxed and confident the next time you plant your hands and feet on your mat.
Best American Made Yoga Mats
CHILL babes! This cute pink yoga mat will remind you to do just that. It’s from Deny Designs, which we ADORE because they give uber-talented artists opportunities to create statement pieces. These standard mats feature graphic lettering from Jose Chico, and it’s such a viiiibe.
This mat features all the slip resistance you need for even the sweatiest hot yoga session. Plus, it’s super easy to keep this mat clean. YASS.
Here’s another yoga mat from Deny Designs that we love love LOVE. The top layer is surprisingly cushiony yet it still offers plenty of grip.
This yoga mat acts as the perfect exercise mat for baddies who just need a little reminder that “Today is a good day to be happy!” ;))
If a simple, plain-colored rubber-friendly yoga mat is more your style, look no further. The Jade Harmony Mat from JadeYoga is the environmentally friendly exercise mat you’ve been searching for. The Harmony mat is the most popular yoga mat from JadeYoga and we totally see why.
JadeYoga plants a tree for every mat sold. How awesome is that? And they’re all sustainably made natural rubber yoga mats. Even better, you don’t need a special yoga mat wash to keep your mat clean. Instead, just clean it with water and you’re good to go.
We love an eco-friendly product so we’re ALL ABOUT this natural rubber mat from JadeYoga.
If versatility and portability are what you’re looking for, the Voyager Foldable mat is PERF for you. This yoga mat is literally HALF the weight of a standard mat and it can fold up to about the size of a regular yoga block, so you can easily stuff it into your bag. Girl, stop worrying about the hassle of toting around your mat after class. This mat takes care of that problem with ease.
How about this mat, babes? It’s made from eco-friendly PVC and it’s designed, printed, and packaged in the Pacific Northwest. They even use environmentally friendly UV-cured inks, so you can feel good about stretching, posing, and meditating on this super chic mat.
Is it weird to describe a yoga mat as gorgeous? Whatev. The Ursa Major mat is totally gorgeous. This mat would catch the eye of even the most professional yoga instructors, in the most exclusive yoga studios, in that part of town. You know what we mean.
Hugger Mugger is another FAB brand that we can totally get behind. Their original sticky mat has been an American-made yoga staple for nearly three decades, so you know it’s legit.
The super affordable Tapa Original Mat comes in three different lengths. Allegedly, this was “the first mat ever created specifically for yoga practice,” which supposedly set the standard for all yoga mats to come. We can totally see it… It’s super lightweight and just sticky enough to keep you perfectly balanced in any asana.
Here’s an opportunity to really do some good for the environment. Rather than buying some humdrum yoga mat put together in a random sweatshop across the world, buy the SugaMat. It’s made from recycled wetsuits but you’d never know just from looking at it.
There are two sizes available – regular and extra-long. Each one is 5mm thick so it provides plenty of cushion for your asana practice.
It doesn’t get much more convenient than a machine-washable yoga mat. After a super challenging yoga class, you can throw the R-YOLO mat into your washing machine. You can even toss it into the dryer!
The mat is a 100% Turkish cotton yoga towel and the padding is polyester foam. It even has recycled non-slip backing.
Kiss The Sky knows yoga mats. Their 72” yoga mat is oval-shaped so the corners won’t curl up the more you use it. It’s just thick enough to protect you from even the most unforgiving floors, while still being able to fit into a standard yoga mat bag or sling.
The Black Oval Mat from Kiss the Sky is made from 100% recycled, all-natural, US-sourced rubber but doesn’t smell like it. And we all know that gross rubber smell… EW.
The cork mats from Yoloha were designed to hold up to even the most intense practices. The yoga mat material absorbs moisture which means it provides an impressive grip even when you’re sweating buckets in hot yoga.
This mat is super durable without a big environmental impact, which is EXACTLY what we LOVE about Yoloha. That, and the fact that it’s made with 100% American-made materials, entirely in the United States. LOVE IT!
