The colourful COBRA mat is made of a mix of Portuguese cork and recycled shoes rubber. Recommended for all your daily sport activities, including pilates, all types of yoga, meditation, fitness and sport exercises.

Dimensions: 183cm x 65cm x 0.5cm
Weight: 1,6kg

Upper layer: 2,5mm natural cork + recycled EVA

Bottom layer: 2,5mm foam rubber EPDM

!! Important note: the bottom layer of our yoga mats are made of EPDM rubber, a very light, practical rubber and made in Portugal. Indeed, it is not natural rubber and it is not the most ecological material we are using.

However, we are not convinced natural rubber is so much better than the foam rubber we’re using. First of all, rubber trees are planted & harvested far far away, in Asia or Brazil, usually under unknown circumstances.

But more importantly, land is being cleared (=trees are cut down) in order to plant these rubber trees. Deforestation creates habitat loss for many plant and animal species. This is for us absolutely not sustainable, so we don’t wish to engage in this process. For more info about how sustainable natural rubber really is, this is an interesting read: Is Rubber Sustainable? Why It’s Not so Simple (Explained) (citizensustainable.com)

We want to be very transparent about this. We’re looking into alternatives to both our foam rubber and the natural rubber and are currently testing with recycled rubber and dandelion.

How your mat was meant to be.

Why would our Cobra give you a better experience?

Comfort Comes First

The thickness of 5mm will give you a comfortable feeling on the mat, an advantage if you have tough joints & knees. Still, our mats are light and have a pleasant touch & feel!

High Performance

We choose for the combination cork + recycled rubber because it gives a high performance on the mat. Grip, stability, sticky feeling, it has it all!

Every Mat Is Unique

Every mat is different, speckled with different rubber colours from shoe soles and cork. It’s a multicoloured mat, which means there are purple, blue, brown, green colours in it.

And the best part of it: fill the top green part with cork wine & champagne stoppers, send us a picture of it, and have a chance to win amazing holidays in the land of the cork, Portugal!

Recycling Parks

All over the world, you can give cork stoppers to recycling parks. In Belgium, we give cork to the organization Recycork, a place for disabled people that gives a second life to (y)our cork.

    Fantastic mat! I love the grip the mat offers on my fingers and toes and I really love the texture it has. I recommend it! 🙂

    Zeer tevreden van de mat tot dus ver. Reeds 3 tal weken gebruik ik de mat 3 à 4 maal per week. Door de natuurlijke kurk voelt de mat zeer natuurlijk en comfortabel aan, je glijdt er niet op weg (wat ik bij mijn vorige mat wel had) en is voldoende groot om verschillende oefeningen op te doen. De mat is zeer gemakkelijk in onderhoud. Wordt geleverd in een goede verpakking die tevens kan gebruikt worden om de mat op verplaatsing mee te nemen.

    Product combines exactly what I was looking for: light weight, high quality material, prettiness in terms of colors and design, and on top of all; being eco-friendly…
