Which side of my Salt and Seed Yoga Mat do I practice on?

Hemp and Eco Rubber Yoga Mat

Hemp side up! Hemp is naturally textured so provides extra grip for you while practicing, has anti-microbial properties and due to the texture weave provides air flow and keeps sweat off the top layer.

The Eco rubber side grips to the surface you are practicing on to keep your mat, and you in place while you yoga.

Vegan Suede and Natural Rubber Yoga Mat

Picture side up! Who wouldn’t want to look at the beautiful picture on your mat while you practice. The Vegan suede is soft to touch so perfect for cozy yin and restorative practices.

The Natural Rubber side will stick to the surface you are practicing on to keep you supported and cushioned during your yoga practice.

 

What are Salt and Seed Yoga Mats made of?

Hemp and Eco Rubber Yoga Mat

Hemp Fiber

  • Hemp is a highly renewable fast growing resource that puts little strain on the soil it is grown in, making its impact on the environment and nutrients in the soil minimal.
  • Hemp requires very little water to grow and thrive
  • Provides a naturally textured surface for extra grip, good abrasion resistance and is very durable
  • Hemp is naturally resistant to pests, so no pesticides are needed
  • Hemp is anti-microbial, UV resistance and is naturally resistant to mold
  • Proponents of hemp claim that it can help reduce global warning as it takes out a larger amount of carbon dioxide per acre than most plants.

Eco Rubber

  • PER – Polymer Environmental Resin, is an eco-friendly material that contains no formaldehyde or heavy metals, is static free and resistant to mildew. PER produces little to no off-gassing, is non-slip and waterproof.
  • PER can be recycled many times
  • Salt and Seed Hemp and Eco Rubber Yoga Mats contain no heavy metals, phathalates, dioxins and furans or phenal, making them a great choice for people who suffer from allergies.

Where are Salt and Seed Yoga Mats made?

Salt and Seed yoga mats are manufactured in China from one of the leading professional manufactures and exporters of eco-friendly fitness products, mainly being yoga mats. All products produced from this manufacture meet the SGS standards.

 

Can I use Salt and Seed Yoga Mats for Hot or Bikram Yoga?

We recommend our Vegan Suede and Natural Rubber Yoga Mat for heated or Bikram yoga classes as the microfiber top is designed in a way that the sweatier you get, the grippier the mat becomes. With the amount of sweat in a heated or bikram class, the Vegan Suede and Natural Rubber Yoga Mat can be easily washed by putting in the washing machine!

Our Hemp and Eco Rubber Yoga Mat is better suitable to all other types of yoga. It is the only mat I use in Bali and after living there for two years practicing yoga daily, I never have any issues with slipperiness from my sweating.

 

Are Salt and Seed Yoga Mats slippery?

Hemp and Eco Rubber Yoga Mat

The hemp fibre gives Salt and Seed Yoga Mats a textured surface which makes them great for extra grip as sweat doesn’t pool on top. The more you use your mat, the more grippier it becomes, so yoga away!

Vegan Suede and Natural Rubber Yoga Mat

The Vegan Suede and Natural Rubber Yoga Mat is designed so that the sweatier you get, the grippier the mat becomes. If your mat is slippery at the start of your practice, simply spray lightly with a water bottle to mist your mat until your palms start to become warm.
