A little hello...
We don't believe in chasing trends, we believe in embracing individuality, encouraging creativity by creating crafted boutique accessories that compliment your active lifestyle.
Our Founder, Kati, travelled the world, sourcing the most sustainable materials, techniques and inspirations. Working in the fashion design industry for over 15 years before leaving to set up a brand inspired by the deep passion and love she has for slower living, yoga, nature and our planet. By using design and business as a force for good to make a real change and offering product with love, thought, detail and difference.
Painted with love,
'My work is hand-painting stories into large scale colour fields, to really envelope the beholder in colour. By using movement as a key energy to channel into artwork with almost tribal mark-making and textures. I dance accross the canvas, building up texture stories and colour combinations.
Creating an artist experience ‘off the wall’ - right at the most immersive point in your yoga practice, when you come face-to-face with colour, it's the purist form of expression and has the ability to heighten the senses, to delve deeper into your connection beyond the self.'
Carry a piece of art to your class and enhance all your senses...
These immersive mats will help you delve deeper into the spiritual element of your practice, to find a sense of zen.

A little note from our founder...
“Creativity, Movement and Artistry have been key throughout my life. My creative journey began at an early age, dancing from age 4, Yoga was a natural progression, with a home practice that has guided me through so many difficult times, it became my sanctuary and saviour. A moment of calm in the stormy waters of life.
I always wanted to make a positive impact using my skills in design. Starting my career in global fashion brands such as Diane Von Furstenberg, Vivienne Westwood and Maria Grachvogel, learning my craft. Specialising in draping around the female form and working with brands that have female empowerment at their core, I found my real passion in creativity. This career took me around the world, absorbing cultures, capturing colours, human expression and energies. I painted these musings, marks and expressions throughout my journey, cultivating in creating large scale abstracts with a ‘spiritual’ energy to them, pure expressionism, which I began to show.
Kati Kaia for me, brings together all my vices for art, movement and creativity with beautiful design and eco sustainability. I want to challenge how we make things, how we create things, bring innovative and exciting design to yoga product alongside my love of details and those old crafted methods, that take time to create, develop and inspire others… it all starts with the base.”
Creativity on and off the mat!

Our studio is where our story really starts and where our creative expression shines!
