Jade's organic cotton Mysore yoga rugs are perfect for all kinds of yoga classes, including Ashtanga, outdoor classes, and beach yoga.
They are made with organic cotton and all natural vegetable dyes made from herbs such as indigo, cumin and turmeric. The herbal dyes are specially made in small batches in order to get the most color and benefits from the herbs. To see the process of dying our yarns, click here.
These rugs are handwoven by rural artisans in India, preserving a tradition and art form and providing a livelihood for weavers. Weaving is a traditional way of life for many people in this area of India, and has seen a huge decline in recent years as it can be very difficult to make a living with weaving and many people have left in search of other jobs. These rugs support the traditional weavers and allow them to use their skills to support their families. For many of them, this is the only job they have ever had and making these rugs allows them to keep this tradition alive. To see a video with one of our weavers, please click here.
These rugs are 27” wide and 72” long and are lightweight at only 2.5 lbs. They are also machine washable making them easy to clean and care for (please note that rugs may shrink slightly in the wash). Using a rug can allow you to feel closer to the traditional roots of yoga.
And with the purchase of each rug, Jade provides a week's of hot lunches to a child in need in India.
