Made for You. Made for Good. Made for Yoga.
Sometimes it’s the bumps in the road that end up defining our journey. This is the story of Manduka, a company founded on the simple idea that a better yoga mat could make a world of difference. In 1997, Peter Sterios, discovered a simple, elegantly designed black mat whose combination of firm grip and complete support revolutionized his yoga practice. In honour of the yoga masters who inspired him, he sought to share this amazing product with others.
Since the beginnings of the Black Mat, Manduka has been inspired and guided by a responsibility to reduce global consumption by making better products that last longer. Manduka's design approach is rooted in principles of conservancy and transparency, creating mats, towels, props and apparel while also making every possible effort to minimize environmental waste. Constantly searching for innovative partners and updated technologies to further respect the land upon which we place our mats and our intentions.
