How it’s made: Yoga

Most conventional yoga mats are made with PVC (polyvinyl chloride). In addition, plasticizers (such as lead, cadmium, dioxin or phthalates) are used to make the mats sticky and pliable thereby increasing their toxicity. However, our mats are made from natural materials that are non-toxic, with no PVC and latex.



1. Obtaining the Natural Rubber

Disrupt yoga mats are deemed eco-friendly being made out of natural rubber from trees. Additionally, containing no PVC or other synthetic rubbers, the natural rubber tapped from trees are sustainable and gives the mat more cushioning, allowing for an enhanced grip handling.



2. Making the MicroFiber

Comprised of 100% high quality micro-fiber suede surface, the yoga mats are biodegradable with fabrics being completely soft and gentle on the skin.



3. Joining the materials

The two materials is then joined with a non-toxic water base glue that is also free of BPA, PVC, phthalate, lead, dioxin and other harmful chemicals. The mat is pressed down using a hydraulic press to ensure the two sides are firmly held together for years to come.



4. Heat transferring the design

Lastly, the designs are then heat transferred onto the yoga mats, using a heat-pressing machine. This allows for long lasting, integrated designs that wont fade when it’s washed.
