How Our Journey Began

Hi, my name is Vandell and I'm the founder of Yogi Raw and the Cork Yoga Mat Shop.

I often get asked 'why did I start a yoga mat company?' The answer is simple, I created our eco friendly brand from my passion for renewable resources and a sustainable future. In addition, every time I was doing yoga with my conventional yoga mat, I always felt the need for more cushioning to protect my knees and heels, yet, firm enough to be able to balance my self and a yoga mat that is easy to keep clean.

We wanted to construct a functional yoga mat that can combines excellent technical performance with an ethical approach to business without harming us or our beautiful planet.           

Environmental consciousness and customer comfort are at the forefront of our product philosophy. Our products are non-toxic and sourced from Mother Nature.
