This is my first Fabric Top Mat after years of using PU, TPE mats. It does need some time to get use to the surface after being so used to sticky grip PU type. That being said, it is not slippery. In fact, it made me be more aware on grounding my hands and feet more and using my body with the mat. Just need to be patient in adapting, once your used to the difference, it lets you flow more, sweat is absorbed so well and now I love the grip and touch, I won't go back to the sticky, plastic mats ever. Love the colour of my mat. Love the eco packing, beautiful.
The vegan suede surface feels heavenly to the touch and the natural rubber backing grips the hard floor surface (marble) so well. Not only is this a beautiful mat to look at with it abstract artwork (I leave it unrolled on the floor), it matches my decor and is a beautiful mat to work with. My daily stretching has never been more delightful.
Bought as a present, this bundle of joy was hard to give away. I'll be buying one for myself, thats for sure.
I bought the Essential Bundle with Thalassa as the main mat and Melete as the touring version. I adore both and, to be frank, bought both because I couldn't make up my mind as to which I liked most!
As you point out, they are a little slippery at first, and I have followed your guidance and sprayed a little water on them to create grip.
I love the fact that they are a little wider and longer than other mats. They are both supportive. Excellent quality that I know will last. I have been doing yoga for over twenty years and these are the best mats I've ever had.
They are beautiful works of art and I have received many compliments for them. I am proud to carry them to classes. The bright, Mediterranean Thalassa colours are a boost to the spirit as we go in to the dark winter nights.
Thank you, Alan
I bought one for me and my partner as we both love that part of practice and these are really special. I love my crystals and stones, makes my meditations feel beautiful as I sit down each day and I wear my bracelet all the time - it reminds me of my intentions to live calm with peace - every time I look at it! My partner uses his every day. Thank you.
Amazing mat, I get so many compliments - feels fantastic and makes my sessions feel really special.
These are the most beautiful mats I have ever seen and I adore my Erytheia mat! My practice feels so sacred now (I also have the mala set - gorgeous) I have purchased a few for birthdays and they are the best - My client commented it's too beautiful to use and should hang on my wall!
Didn't actually believe it would fit in my hand luggage for my retreat to Spain, but it was perfect - great with the hot weather - got really sweaty and just rinsed clean each day, was dry by morning! Beautiful artwork! And i've taken it to the pebble beach too, was really good to lie on! :)
Vibrant and beautiful. Perfect for yoga. Perfect size
I like a thinner mat for my yoga practice, so I went for the Touring mat - which is just right for my preference and I can take it everywhere.
Really love these mats - very high quality materials make them a pleasure to use, got one for me and my son.
I love my Kati Kaia mat so much that I now have two. Not only are they sustainably made but they are literal works of art. They look and feel so beautiful that they are just lovely to have around and gorgeous to practice on. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a new mat!
Recently bought one of these gorgeous mats while on holiday and now use it continuously back in Sydney! It's great, fit in case and washable! Super comfortable, I bought one for my aunt! x
I have the Melete yoga mat and the artwork is so beautiful! Love the comfy/smooth texture. Makes me feel safe to use as it’s natural rubber so no weird smell. Just makes my yoga and meditation practice amazing.
