The eKO Mat is new and improved, and now offers an unparalleled grip to perform even in the sweatiest of conditions. This eco-friendly yoga mat made from biodegradable, non-Amazon harvested, natural tree rubber provides cushion and support for your practice while protecting the planet.
All eKO® Series have a closed-cell surface, which will never absorb moisture. Because of this, if you are warm/sweaty at all, the mat will feel slippery, so we always recommend pairing it with one of our hand towels to absorb moisture and provide extra traction. If you're practicing hot yoga, we recommend a mat towel for full mat coverage.

Natural rubber provides a semi-sticky grip, but since it won't absorb sweat, we always recommend pairing with an equa® hand towel or yogitoes® hand towel to absorb moisture and increase grip. For towel guidance read our guide to yoga towels
