The Bondi mat makes the perfect buddy for outdoor pop-up yoga, for travelling or as a cover mat on top of your yoga studio mat. The mat is fairly lightweight weighing around 1,3kg and can be easily folded to fit in your backpack or bag. The top surface is made of recycled PET plastic bottles which provides a nice grip. Whilst the base of the mat is made of natural rubber, so that your mat does not slip while in use.

 

3 good reasons:

  • Beautiful design

  • Made from recycled PET bottles
  • Designed specifically for yoga at pop-up locations

Inspired by Bondi


Bondi is a famous beach in Sydney, Australia. Surrounded by rough rocks, there is a pool on top of the rocks with a view on the ocean: The Bondi Icebergs Club. The pools are built on the rockside of Bondi Beach and it was built to allow the locals go swimming throughout all the year. When the waves of the ocean are high they can even crush into the Iceberg pools. Hear the waves crushing and watch the horizons melting with the sky. 


The artwork was inspired by blue, white & brown shades as seen at Bondi. This mat will brighten up your dynamic yoga practice. Think of bold blue waves and earthy brownish colors. Designed in Germany, from original artworks by Solveig, founder of English Yoga Meetup. We are committed to selling beautiful, yet functional and sustainable eco mats that inspire you to chase your inner flow on and off the mat.


Material

Base: natural tree rubber

Top: Microfiber made of recycled PET plastic bottles


The anti-slip layer on top allows you to flow through your practice with ease and is suitable for dry and sweaty hands. Due to its absorpent surface you won't need an extra yoga towel on top.

The mats are not made of silicone, PVC or Chlorine. The natural rubber bottom and suede surface were combined by applying high temperature, so there is no glue used at all. The ink that is used for printing the colors is on water-base and eco-friendly.

Good to know

Our mats are manufactured in Asia and certified according to international standards. To save CO2 we chose to have our mats shipped to Germany via railway instead of air. It is for this reason that re-stocking may take longer than expected. After much research we discovered that the technology required to make recycled yoga mats is not currently available in Europe. However, the company we have chose to work with ensures fair wages for their employees and prohibits child labour.


Our designs are created by the Frankfurt artist Solveig in Germany and we try to support local where we can. We take pride in supporting local photographers, models, influencers and location partners.


Social Impact

With every purchase we donate a portion of the funds received to the Malala Fund which supports girls in getting access to secondary school education.


Mat Journey

The inspiration

It starts with browsing travel photos. Solveig scrolls through the photos from previous travels and chooses photos that feel inspiring. She then decides on the colour and mood board. Find out more about the artist.


The creation

The colours are mixed and prepared for the acrylic painting on canvas. Some artworks take one evening and others several days. Sometimes the artwork is repainted or some gold elements are added with an acrylic pen. The completed artworks take around 48 hours to dry.


The scanning

The artwork is scanned by a professional company that specialises in the reproduction of artwork. The file can be then used to reproduce the image on a number of different surfaces. Only a portion of the scanned image is used to create the yoga mats. We always ensure that the colors flow along the long side of the mat.


The production

The file is then sent to the mat manufacturer and a sample mat is produced. The print of the design, the colours and the functionality are checked. If everything goes well, a bigger order is made. The mats are then shipped to Germany and their quality checked, before they go out to the yogi :)


FAQ

Is the mat right for me?

It is suitable for Hatha Yoga, Vinyasa Yoga, Power Yoga, Hot Yoga, Yin Yoga, Bikram, Pilates and Barre. It has an anti-slip layer so that you have a good grip through transitions - regardless of whether you have dry or sweaty hands. It works as an outdoor mat, as a travel mat, as a hygienic cover mat over yoga studio mats or on a carpet for your yoga practice at home.


Is the mat sustainable?

Our manufacturing is done in Asia and certified according to international standards. To save CO2 we chose to ship our mats to Germany via railway. The design paintings are created in Germany. We try to support local where we can. Also after much research we discovered the technology that is required to make recycled yoga mats is currently not available in Europe. We avoid plastic in our packaging and wrap the mats in non-bleached kraft paper. The yoga mats are made from sustainable natural rubber (base) and recycled materials (top). Along with this we only order in small quantities to reduce any chance of waste.


To whom do you donate?

We have decided to donate 1% of our yoga mat sales to the Malala Fund, a charity that helps girls around the world get access to secondary education. Education is key in finding solutions for the world's problems. Furthermore, we want to empower women to make better life choices for themselves.

About AMAROO

AMAROO mats is a yoga brand dedicated to eco mats. Each mat is based on real paintings created by self-taught artist Solveig, the founder of English Yoga Meetup. "AMAROO" is an Aboriginal term that means "beautiful place". It was in Australia that the artist's love for outdoor yoga began. The AMAROO concept was inspired by the movements of yoga flows as well as beautiful places from all around the world. And, by using the fluid pouring technique, the artist creates this sense of fluidity and beauty as the acrylic colours flow onto and across the canvas.
