Bohemian printed yoga mats? We’re up for some down dogs!

The result: stand-out yoga mats that inspire equal amounts of sun salutations and wanderlust.
Each mat is extra thick, lightweight, and includes original artworks with a poem from Rumi. The coconut cream icing on the cake? The mats are latex-free and non-toxic, so you won’t leave your hot yoga class fuming.
