Mount Fuji is an integral symbol of Japan and a source of many legends and myths. This highest peak in Japan is also an active volcano, sitting on the border of three tectonic plates. It last exploded more than 300 years ago. Despite all of Japan’s attractions, Fuji remains its most popular tourist destination. Many of the 200,000 annual visitors climb to the top at night to experience goraiko – sunrise from Fuji. After all, Japan is the land of the rising sun.

Fuji is at least from the 7th century a sacred shinto site, which is Japan’s native religion worshipping unnatural gods kami. According to the Shinto belief, the dwellings of kami spirits are natural elements such as trees, lakes, streams, rocks and mountains. Kami from Mount Fuji is Princess Konohanasakuya, whose symbol is a cherry blossom.

Beautiful, unique, eco friendly and intuitively functional – that is our Japanese collection including this hand-designed vegan suede exercise mat. Take a walk with us under the sakura heavens protected by an ornate parasol.  Stop on the moon bridge to admire the blooming lotuses. Take a boat ride on a lake overlooking the majestic Mount Fuji and watch fishermen and his trained cormorant catch dinner for the royal family. Take a peek with us under the cover of this ancient culture full of symbols and legends that has managed to retain many of its secrets until today.

Using a special technology, we combined soft suede made from recycled plastic bottles with natural rubber to create a durable designer luxury that guarantees to turn heads. For an even better high performance support, the suede layer of each vegan suede exercise mat is coated in a non-slip surface. You can further enhance its non-slip properties by spraying a small amount of water prior to your exercise routine.

Approximately 15 disposable plastic bottles is used to create suede for each yoga mat. Natural rubber is, of course, biodegradable and does not contain any toxic substances, silicones or phthalates.

    I’m in love! I’ve always been obsessed with Japan so when I found this mat, it was a done deal. Even though I first got attracted to the design, once I got it, I fell in love with how soft the faux suede is but doesn’t actually slip when I go crazy during practice. Best mat I’ve ever had!

    I received my yoga mat 2 weeks ago and I love it. The beautiful design sparkles joy every time I look at it :) The delivery was surprisingly fast (I live in Innsbruck/Austria). I ordered on Monday morning and received the mat on Thursday. The material is soft and makes you feel comfortable but it also makes sure that you don’t slip during a more exhausting/sweaty practice. I was first a bit concerned that the bright mat would get dirty quickly, but so far it looks brand new – even though I have used it every day so far. I can totally recommend the mat, since it is a great combination of beautiful design and functionality! My only suggestion would be to offer the mat also in 5mm, for those with more sensitive knees.

    This design always transforms me to a calmer, tranquil place. The mat is great for practicing hand and forearm stands, as well as splits. It is soft enough to give support without impacting stability.

    I really like the Japanese collection but pink isn’t really my colour so this was a nobrainer. Realy like how the tones make you feel immediately more calm and the mat surprised me by not slipping.

    Krásný motiv, heboučká na dotek a 3mm je akorát tloušťka pro podporu kolen při cvičení. Moc velká spokojenost a určitě doporučuji.

    I was really surprised how beautiful the mat feels and looks. The material seems very high quality and I love that the design is original unlike pretty much all mandala mats.
