Product Description

One of the most environmentally friendly yoga mats, this new Eco Yoga Mat is excellent for any consistent practice of Yoga. Its rubber underside grips the floor and jute fabric/rubber mix on top offers superb traction. The fabric gives a highly durable, tactile and pleasantly natural surface to practice on and the rubber gives excellent grip. A mat ideal for all Yogis and Yoginis as the Jute mat combines a cloth surface and sticky mat in one and might remind you of walking barefoot on the earth.

It is easily the best mat I've ever practiced on, shedding and all, and I could not recommend it more highly.

I own two of the Barefoot Yoga Original Eco Mats, one in Purple and one in Natural, one for home and one for the studio that I teach at most often.
This is a great mat that offers incredible traction, durability, and support. It is thick enough but not too thick. I feel balanced on it and love the jute fiber and don't really find it "too rough" but that is just me.
It does have that natural rubber smell, especially brand new, but it gets better over time and it doesn't bother me that much. Also, with the Natural colored mat, it gets dirty really easily and although I never THOUGHT my hands and/or feet were exceptionally dirty while practicing on this mat, I ended up with some awful stains where my hands and feet are in downdog.
The major complaint I have about this mat is that it sheds like crazy. I always have to pick little pieces of rubber off of my clothing after seated/lying down positions. I don't know if it's because of the jute fiber interwoven with the natural rubber or what, but it's kind of annoying to have little rubber particles clinging to me all the time when I am practicing/teaching !

I bought this mat after a lot of reasearch. This one was difficult to get as it is out of stock in most places.
I finally got one, and its truly amazing. Its got a nice texture, not too soft and not too rough. And it has a very good grip.

I placed it on the floor and found some poses difficult (i need a little more cushion as I am a newbie). I usually use 2 yoga mats in classes, so I placed this one on a thin carpet and it was perfect.

Its rolls and unrolls easily and occupies very little space. its light enough to be carried out.

Also, i got the green color and it looks amazing!

although this mat is eco-friendly in its materials, when you consider how often it will have to be replaced the eco-friendliness loses some of its shine. i've owned the eco mat for a few years (2-3?) and, like another reviewer, have had consistent problems with the mat "shedding" small rubber particles. i love the interwoven jute fibers - they look and feel great, and give the mat excellent traction without being scratchy but unfortunately, after a few years of regular use, the mat has degraded to the point where holes have developed where i place my hands and feet in down dog. the mat is lightweight (nice for carrying to class) but doesn't give enough support to practice on carpet - it tends to bunch and roll annoyingly, even on a thin studio carpet - and even on hardwood floors the corners tend to roll a bit. i would not recommend this mat for practitioners of ashtanga or power yoga, or anyone looking for a durable mat for very regular practice. after putting the decision off for far too long (i probably should have replaced this mat a year ago!), i've finally broken down and ordered a manduka mat - although it contains pvc, it should last for years and years...and years, keeping more eco mats out of the landfill.
