In the spirit of making less of an impact on the environment, prAna created this eco-friendly Neo Natural Yoga Mat that is completely biodegradable (although there are lots of way to re-purpose it before it goes into the compost pile). Two layers of cotton scrim sandwiched between three, heat-laminated layers of natural rubber limits stretch in three directions for a very stable platform. 78″L X 26″W X 4mm.
The prAna Neo Natural Yoga Mat comes in 3 colors Fern, Rust and Sea Blue and retails for $68.00 The mat feels heavy and seems extremely solid. The surface is nice and sticky for those whose feet and hands perspire. I find the rust color rather interesting, since you rarely would see that color.
prAna, an ancient Sanskrit word for breath, life and vitality of the spirit, has helped guide their actions and lift their aspirations since day one.
prAna started out 19 years ago making clothing that worked well for climbing and yoga. It turned out that the clothing worked well for lots of other passions too, so they added new products with “purpose” in mind and scoured the world for design inspiration.
Initially clothing was cut and sewed from a garage and shipped to customers in surplus fruit boxes gathered from the local grocery store. For hangtags, prAna ground up old newspapers, added essential oils and cut out the handmade paper with a pizza cutter. prAna’s first employee slept on a hinged bed that turned into a shipping table by day.
