So why natural rubber and jute?
These materials deliver the perfect balance of comfort, style and performance for a yoga mat. The jute fibres reinforce the natural rubber which provides better structure, strength and durability. Jute combines breathability with high tensile strength which gives our 2E ‘Connected’ yoga mat a natural high quality surface with excellent anti-slip properties. So no more sweaty palms during your downward facing dog!
The natural rubber and jute combination makes this yoga mat stand out from the crowd with its distinctive look and earthy feel. The really good news though, is that it’s completely PVC and plasticiser free, so you aren’t exposed to any nasty toxins during your workout.
What’s more, the natural tree rubber and jute fibres are sustainably and ethically sourced. And that’s important.

What gives our mats the edge?
When we started Second Earth we had one goal – To develop the best performing and most eco-friendly yoga mat available.
So before we launched we spent over 12 months refining and testing every design feature of our mat to maximise performance and durability. We worked very closely with our manufacturing partner and played around with the ratios of natural rubber and jute as well as the pattern of the actual jute itself. Where we landed is the perfect combination to deliver maximum grip and outstanding overall performance and durability. Performance – TICK.
We also wanted to ensure that our mats would exceed all expectations when it came to sustainability. After a long search we found a manufacturing partner who ticked all the boxes. All the materials in our mats are ethically and sustainably sourced and 100% biodegradable. But what’s really cool is that our manufacturer uses a high tech patented process to combine the jute and natural rubber which means our mats contain no glues or binding agents. Awesome hey? Sustainability – TICK.
So there you have it. That’s why we claim to have the best non-slip eco yoga mat on the market.
