At kulae, we are on a twofold mission to provide the most stylish + eco-friendly yoga gear on the planet while truly living by our mantra "karma's real".
The name kulae was derived from the word kula. Kula is a word from the Sanskrit language meaning community. Sanscrit is an ancient language of India. The letter "e" in Sanskrit pluralizes a word like the letter "s" does in the English language. This is why an "e" was added to the end of kula to be kulae. Kulae is a meaning of communities coming together and working together to help maintain healthy people on a healthy planet.
We have built the finest eco yoga mats on the market with the tpECOmat™ family of mats. All lines of our tpECOmats are 100% biodegradable, 100% recyclable, and contain NO PVC, NO latex, NO cadmium, NO lead and NO rubber (that means NO allergies). Our eco yoga mats are dual layer constructed, providing two color options and two distinct, grippy surfaces for you to choose, all in one mat.
Our eco mats are made of eco-conscious TPE using closed cell technology. What that means for you is that bacteria and germs cannot get "trapped" in the mat, as is the case with most natural rubber mats and traditional PVC mats (which use open cell construction). You will get the grip of a traditional "sticky" mat without the smell, the heavy carrying weight and lingering odors found in traditional rubber/PVC mats.
The durability, comfort and traction of the tpECOmat™ family of mats are second to none. We're so confident you will love your kulae eco yoga mat, that we guarantee your satisfaction 100%. But, our mission doesn't stop with the tpECOmat™. Our yoga straps are made of 100% cotton. We use 100% renewable Portuguese cork instead of foam for our blocks. Our yoga mat cleaner is 100% certified organic. The list goes on. Just know that we are working very hard to ensure that your yoga + fitness experience is in concert with the world in which we live.
What goes around comes around, we all have a responsibility to our communities and to each other. With that in mind, a generous portion of our proceeds and time are donated to various charities. So far this year, we have partnered with Yokid + Mandala House to focus our charity work within the yoga community. Check out their websites at http://yokid.org/ + http://mandalahouse.org/
This year we have also donated to: Doernbecher Children's Hospital, Global Sava Challenge / Get your give on event, Shape up RI, Give back Yoga Foundation, The Imagine Foundation, Respond INC, The Italian Home for Children, and Yoga reaches out.
This is a great mat if your hands do not sweat during yoga. If you take Hot Yoga classes, invest in a good towel or mat towel. I have ordered one and once I use it with this mat I will update my review.
Some pros of the mat are: great calming colors, a little 'spongy' padding for those with bad knees, this really helps with low runner lunge etc..., reversable- there is just something about being able to flip it over and have a brand new mat between classes that I like. - Henniet
I am giving my review by seeing how happy my mom was after receiving this for a gift. She was even happier after testing it out. She has began to love Yoga and I love it that she is more active and happier. This mat started an amazing process of me watching my mother start her journey to happiness. It's amazing how something as simple as a yoga mat can start a beautiful journey. Thanks for giving my mom the motivation to start this process. Now I want to start doing Yoga!! :) - Megan Fisher
