Who made your mat?
Hi My name is Solveig, I began experimenting with fluid acrylics during corona lockdown times durign 2020/21 to reconnect myself to the mindful ritual of painting and creating. My first trials with fluid acrylics evolved into little pieces of art, that are inspired by destinations I previously travelled.
As a passionate yoga teacher, founder of English Yoga Meetup and everlasting desire to explore new places, the idea of a pop up yoga mat collection was born. In fact, I was tired to have 5 different mats at home: One for her home practice, one for the studio, one to travel and one for outdoors. None of the mats ticked all the boxes: either too heavy, too thin, too bulky, too hard to wash, too slippery or not long-lasting and harming material. After testing out many samples and a lot of feedback from the English Yoga Meetup community , the perfect pop up yoga mat was found. It finally ticked all of the boxes:
- beautiful, vibrant designs
- recycled materials
- non-slip surface
- suitable for dry and wet hands
- good cushioning
- rolls out flat
- plastic free packaging
- easy to transport and wash
I wanted to create a yoga mat, that is fun to roll out, so that you actually enjoy even more stepping up on your mat. The destination inspired designs bring you mentally to a beautiful place even on a grey day. Currently there are 2 unique designs to choose from. We have other designs in the pipeline and can't wait to involve our community to help us choosing the next mat design together. Made for yogis, by yogis :)
