The Manduka Yoga Mat Pro was created in an effort to be more eco-friendly, and safe for consumers. The founder of this company was an architect who began practicing yoga and decided to create a mat that is built to last.

8 Jade Yoga XW Fusion Mat - $179.95
Jade Yoga's origin is quite interesting. It was first a rug company that also created rubber padding. As BKS Iyengar demonstrated some postures in the US, he was saved from slipping when the rug was removed and he practiced on the pad.
Jade Yoga has since perfected a mat that is non-toxic, and non-slip. The mat is extra-wide so yogis don't need to scoot around and reposition when practicing tricky postures. The mat is also 5/16" thick and is great for the extra support for knees and inversion postures.
7 Holistic Silk Luxurious Yoga Mat - $230
Perhaps you are an eco-friendly yogi who prefers a more soothing or restorative practice like Yin Yoga or Yoga Nidra. If so, the Holistic Silk Luxurious Mat may be the perfect mat for you. This company was founded in 1999 and makes very well crafted sustainable handmade mats.
The yoga mat is handmade from vegan materials including synthetic leather and soft fleece. It is also stuffed with lavender flowers, which can make your practice nicely scented. The mats are lightweight, portable and an additional bonus is that they are washable.
6 Maati Maati Yoga Mat - $250
If you're a sustainable yogi, check out the Maati Maati yoga mat. It's made from natural cork from Portugal. This mat is eco-friendly and sustainable as it comes from the local cork oak tree. These mats are also made locally in Portugal, and the cork is harvested by farmers who employ ancient techniques.
To top it off 10% of proceeds from this cushiony mat are donated to protecting flora and fauna in Portugal. The material makes it easy to clean, so it's also recommended for a sweaty vinyasa yoga session.
5 Saint Laurent No Ka'oi Yoga Mat - $360
This mat is a stylish crossover by Saint Laurent Paris in collaboration with No Ka'oi. If you're a yogi that loves a brand name, this one may be for you. No Ka'oi means "the best" in Hawaiian, though it was founded in Bologna, Italy in 2014.
This brand has an emphasis on construction and playful colors, activewear, and streetwear, and has even been seen on celebrities like Kandi Burruss. If the black mat doesn't suit you, there is also a leopard print version you can take home for €345 (around $360).
4 Liforme x Burberry - $420
If you happen to be in the market for a well-made mat, with a design that is both sleek and utilitarian, look no further. Liforme's recent collaboration with Burberry is a simple, sturdy mat equipped with the AlignForMe alignment guides that are on all of Liforme's yoga mats.
This mat is non-slip and extra comfy. Liforme mats were developed over a period of 5 years by an entertainment lawyer who also practices yoga. They're designed for both comfort and utility, so users can really find their body in the pose.
3 Ermenegildo Zegna - $500
The illustrious Ermenegildo Zegna brand was born in Trivero, Northern Italy in 1910.

2 Baller Yoga LXXX Mat - $1,500
With good sportsmanship in mind, the Baller yoga mat was created to combine yoga and football. It's crafted from the same leather as the NFL uses to equip its ballers. The founder is a traveler, inventor, and yogi who credits long meditation at a retreat to his newest innovation.
The mat packs a good smell since it's made locally in the United States and has a non-slip grip. It's said to be perfect for any baller yogi that is looking for a genuine leather mat that will help them tackle the poses.
