If you checked the site and are wondering to yourself, “damn, why are these so expensive?” It’s because you’ve never truly had a mat that is like this. OKO is one of a kind. The mat and carrier are BEAUTIFUL. The stitching make you wonder why you’ve never learned how to make fabric pieces your whole life (because I’m sure it’s insanely hard), but the work is amazing. Every time I look down at the rug I think to myself how beautiful this creation is that someone else has made for me and my practice. I’ve always used a traditional mat with a towel over it. I don’t know why I’ve been doing this my whole life (not to slip!) with this rug there is no uncomfortable movement. I am no longer slipping. I ordered another one lol omg the rose quartz! So now I will have the travel mat and the “home” mat!! I wasn’t sure about the tassels at first, but after doing my practice it made it SO much easier to have those! This MAKES me want to practice every day. It is worth the purchase and sure to last a long time. Thank you OKO! You’ve changed my life. For real.
Love this mat. First it is well made, beautiful, and non slip! It feels great under my hands and feet.
I Love the quality! It’s not only very well made but also beautiful! I have been looking for this for a while now but never could come across one until one day it popped up in my Instagram feed! I was so excited! I loved checking out the website! It had so much information on the mat! Where it was made and by whom. Also has a video showing some of the process in making it. I love the fact that it is naturally colored with herbs. It’s lightweight. It’s original and like one of a kind. I am in the process of getting my yoga teacher training certification right now! I love yoga so much I wanted to deepen my practice so I decided to go on this journey! Reading the books required for the training has inspired me and I want to be original with my practice. That’s what made me try to find this exact type of yoga mat. Something like they would have used originally, organic. When I got my mat I couldn’t wait to start using it and immediately got it out and was amazed at the quality and the beauty of, as well as the nice handwritten card, it’s own carrying bag and the nuts to wash it with So it is different practicing on this type of mat and does require a different “grip” in hands. Not so much in the feet. I expected this and I feel as if it will make me stronger in my postures. The way it’s supposed to be! I have to believe that practicing yoga on the Oko yoga mat has to be the closest thing to authenticy. I love the fact I’m not on a rubber mat- something that the Yogis way back probably would have not approved of. Thank you so much for creating this beautiful herbal yoga mat!❤️ Namaste Rhonda
Practicing on my Oko mat is an act of self love. Soft, with just enough ‘catch’ to hold poses. My skin just feels good touching it. I love that Oko promotes sustainability as a whole using natural fibers, herbal dyes and artisan makers. Oko is at the forefront of setting a trend of the natural way products should be made.
This mat blew me away. I wanted it because it's just so cute! But I didn't expect that it would also have great traction and works better for my knees than anything else I've tried.
