Why Buy a Suede Yoga Mat?

Why Buy a Suede Yoga Mat?

Choosing a new mat can be challenging at times, particularly with so many options on the market.

So here are some reasons why a Suede Yoga Mat may be the right fit for you:

  • Vegan Material
  • Amazing Grip
  • Soft Texture
  • Sweat Resistant
  • Beautiful Designs
  • Eco-Friendly
  • Easy to Clean




Rekindi Suede Mats are made from vegan-suede or Microsuede, thus making sure no animal was harmed in the process.

Microsuede is one of the most popular forms of faux suede, as it is soft, water-resistant, light weight, stain-proof, and easy to care for.



Suede is made up of fine micro-particles which allow for a firm grip when doing a posture like ‘Downward Dog’.

Rekindi Natural Suede Mats have natural premium rubber on the bottom with ridges for maximum hold on any surface.


Soft Texture

The surface of a suede mat feels delicate and soft. This is because the surface fibres are thin, creating a multi-layered structure providing optimum comfort. Not to mention this fibre creates a very elegant, expensive look compared with other materials.


Sweat Resistant

Microsuede is made from the same material as many towels out there, which is why many refer to a suede mat as a 2 in 1 option. You have the ‘towel like surface’ on the top, and the firm rubber on the bottom. The main reason many towels are made from microfibres is to absorb LOTS OF moisture and sweat. Microfiber absorbs sweat, which creates great anti-slip properties providing you with amazing grip.

Suede finish provides a soft feel and allows for absorption of water and oil, protecting your mat from even the sweatiest of workouts!


Beautiful Designs

Suede mats usually have such unique, bright designs due to the multi-layers structure consisting of small fibres allowing for a glossy, soft colour.



Rekindi Mats are made from both vegan-suede and natural tree-based rubber. Both are recyclable and completely safe for you and the planet.


Easy to Clean

Suede mats are very easy to clean. Simply add some liquid detergent or vinegar in cold water and hand wash them. Rinse them properly, and then let them dry in the shade. Do not put them in direct sunlight, as this will impact the bright colours on your beautiful mat.
