Cork is the outer bark of the Cork Oak Tree which grows in the Mediterranean area. Cork trees are the only tree in the world that regenerates stripped bark.
Approximately 6.6 million acres of cork forest extend across Portugal, Spain, Algeria, Morocco, Italy, Tunisia and France. These oak forests support one of the world s highest levels of forest biodiversity, second only to the Amazonian rain forest.
Not a single tree is cut down to harvest cork, rather, the bark is stripped by hand every 9 years. Harvested cork oak trees can live up to 300 years.
No bark is wasted during the cork production process, and the residue is granulated to make other cork products and even cork dust is used for fuel. Harvesting cork is performed completely by hand and provides over 100,000 fair wage jobs.
All of our products are shipped using only 100 recycled or recyclable cardboard and kraft paper.
Cork oak trees store carbon in order to regenerate their bark, and a harvested cork oak tree absorbs up to five times more carbon dioxide than one that isn t harvested.
Customer reviewsYoloha Aura Cork Mat review
First of I wanted to get this mat because the cork was different from anything else I have seen and interested me. Second because I do primarily hot yoga and sweat alooooot and wanted to see if the claims held up. My other mat is lululemon that was suppose to have a no slip surface and it did... for about 5 months before it wore off and I was sliding again, I have been using that for 2 years. Plus I was tired of using towels that always got in the way. So far this mat is awesome it is super comfortable to practice on because the added cushion of the cork, My wrists and joints thank you on that I am a 265lb male . But most importantly when I sweat i don t slip AT ALL during hot classes. I let a few of my teachers try it for a class and they also loved it and talked about getting some in stalk for their studios. I know it has a life time guarantee which my lulu used too but now doesn t for some reason , but I am still interested to see how well the cork rubber holds up as both cork and rubber do eventually tend to break apart when dry. AS for non heated classes, like others have said, you do need to wet the mat a little for added grip but that is not a big deal. Oh it also dries super fast too, I stretch it out after a class and it air drys in a few hours
