A special design made in partnership with Genavee Lazaro. Avee features her signature characters called "Cactus Friends" whom she typically paints and sculpts doing charming, yet, ultimately, mundane things. Her work for Loop. is an ode to the plants and poses we increasingly find ourselves spending more time on these days.
If you're looking for a durable and chemical-free high performance workout mat, this one made of cork and natural rubber might be the one for you.
The cork surface has the natural grip and the good cushioning needed to comfortably hold poses, while the rubber bottom ensures no slip when you're executing dynamic moves. Cork also has antibacterial properties so there's no worry of bad odors, and cleaning is simple and quick.
Genavee Lazaro is a painter and ceramicist based in Los Baños, Laguna. She graduated from University of the Philippines Diliman in 2015 as a sculpture major, and is currently being handled by Galerie Stephanie. Learn more about her work here.
Luckily, cork is naturally antimicrobial so it will NOT smell. Simply dampen a soft cloth with cold water and wipe down the mat. You can add a mild soap or detergent, and essential oil for an even deeper clean. Let it air dry before rolling up. DO NOT SUN DRY.
To avoid wrinkling of cork, DO NOT FOLD yoga mat. Instead, ROLL it with the cork surface facing out.
