Described by Harper's Bazaar and Vogue as 'stunning works of art', Yoga Design Lab is a new brand of yoga mats with beautiful, bright designs.
With a growing celebrity following in the USA, I have to admit that I felt quite the celebrity when I unrolled my gorgeous, brightly coloured new yoga mat at my yoga class last weekend.
The story of Yoga Design Lab began in 2014 when Canadian surfer/yogi, Chad Turner, sold everything he had, packed his bags and moved to Bali, driven by the idea to create a functional and aesthetically beautiful yoga mat.
“I was seated in the back of a packed yoga class while on vacation in Ubud, Bali. Looking around, all I saw was a sea of unoriginal, massed produced, solid colored mats. My thinking was that there must be a way of creating a highly functional product that was also aesthetically beautiful. So the journey began. Long story short, I sold my stuff, packed up a couple bags and moved to Bali with the goal of creating a stunning line of yoga products that inspire more people to get excited about yoga."

100% Natural the yoga mats are made of a natural tree rubber base from Vietnam and recycled bottle microfiber that works as a towel.
The gorgeous print designs are made with water-based inks.
The microfiber is adhered while the rubber mat is heated to avoid any sort of toxic glue, preventing any glue odors.
