JadeYoga began in earnest in 2000 after we learned of the fundamental problem with most yoga mats on the market at that time - they were slippery. As we were already making natural rubber rug pads, we approached the problem from that angle and developed Harmony, the first natural rubber yoga mat.
Jade Yoga mats provide a superior level of traction. We use natural rubber; it has a much stronger grip and has more cushion than any of the synthetic rubbers on the market (PVC, PER, TPE, EVA). Our products are made with sustainable materials, designed to provide a secure grip to help hold your pose.
Making yoga products with sustainable materials is our first priority. Lucky for us, natural rubber is the most sustainable and best-performing material for yoga mats. We are committed to giving back to the Earth with every product sold and we want to leave the Earth a better place than when we found it. As Jade Yoga mats come from trees, we decided to give back by planting a tree for every mat sold. Since 2006, through our partnership with Trees for the Future, we have done just that, planting over 1.6 million trees so far!
In addition, all of our mats are made right here in the United States! “American-made” still means a lot to us, and we take pride in being a US-based company. "American-made" also means quality and assurance, giving us much more control over the materials used in our products and the production process from start to finish.
