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.

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!

Color: deep lavender
I have the Eco Yoga Mat in coral (which is actually just red), and I could not be happier. The criticisms are true. This mat does shed, and all your yoga pants will get little mat particles stuck on them. It might melt if you leave it in your parked car on a really hot day. You will have to replace it from time to time, depending on how often/hard you practice. It is not squishy/ is not made of memory foam/ does not encourage napping; in fact, it's only slightly softer than the floor. But despite all that, it is still the best.

If you're looking for a mat for restorative, gentle, meditative yoga, this mat is fine, and if natural materials are important to you, then go for it. A lot of the real strengths of this mat will come into play in more vigorous yoga practices.

The jute, which is only a little scratchy, helps create traction for sweaty hands and feet, so no slipping around on your mat even during the fastest flows. This is a great mat for beginners because even with sweaty palms, you won't be slipping and sliding out of downward dog. It also helps build those all-important (for some) yoga callouses. They're not cute, but they really protect my elbows when I'm holding scorpion or pincha mayurasana.

This mat has a textured bottom that actually grips the floor. If I'm holding a single leg balance pose, and have to hop a step to catch my balance, my old orange Gaiam mat would bunch up around my foot, making it impossible, my outrageously overpriced Jade mat would go slipping across the floor, taking me with it (Jade mats are, as far as I'm concerned, unsafe at any speed), but my little red Eco Yoga Mat stays put. No bunching, no skidding. For inversions, arm balances, and standing balances, this mat stays precisely where I put it.
