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 our passion for renewable resources and a sustainable future. In addition, when ever I was doing yoga with my conventional yoga mat, I always felt that I needed more cushioning to protect my knees and heels, yet, firm enough to still be able to balance my self as well as a yoga mat that is easy to keep clean.

We wanted to construct a functional yoga mat that can combine 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.
