Affordable and compact eco-friendly mat with an excellent grip
Jade Harmony is the bestselling eco-friendly yoga mat with superior traction and a non-slip surface. This mat is made from natural rubber and doesn’t contain PVC, EVA, TPE, or other synthetic rubbers. Jade Harmony is a versatile, all-round mat that combines excellent grip and superior comfort and stability without being as heavy as other eco mats, such as Manduka eKO. The 5 mm thickness gives good cushion and support without sacrificing stability, balance, and makes it an easily portable compact size.
The mat features an open-cell surface with light ridges that provide excellent traction both in dry and wet conditions, especially suitable for very intense yoga styles. The non-slip surface is highly absorbent and retains its excellent grip even in the sweatiest conditions while firmly connecting to the floor to prevent any sliding. Many yogis and instructors consider Jade Harmony to be the best and grippiest mat for hot yoga. However, some practitioners find it unsuitable for hot yoga because the open-cell surface absorbs sweat and takes a while to dry. It doesn't impact the excellent grip throughout the practice but it can be inconvenient.
Jade Harmony comes in over ten beautiful colors for any taste, from midnight blue to flamingo pink and olive green, make it a beautiful and elegant mat for any practice. Most of the mat’s downsides come from its natural and highly absorbent structure. The open-cell surface tears down over time, making it less durable than PVC and other non-open cell rubber mats. The mat’s rubber texture has a strong initial rubber smell that wears off over time and requires regular cleaning after every practice. In short, there is a trade-off: the open-cell structure increases the mat’s excellent grip, but it is less durable and requires more cleaning than some other synthetic and natural alternatives. Although the mat is 99% latex-free, the company advises avoiding it if you have a latex allergy.
All in all, Jade Harmony is one of the best all-round yoga mats on the market, combining eco-friendly materials, excellent grip, and comfortable 5mm thick cushioning with great stability and colorful design. The mat is more affordable than similar eco-friendly mats and offers a superior grip for any style of yoga. It is an excellent choice for both beginners and advanced practitioners. In addition, Jade plants a tree for every mat sold and donates a percentage of its profits to diverse causes and charities.

The mat is made from biodegradable natural rubber. It does not contain PVC, phthalates, heavy metals, or flame retardants and is FDA-approved (certified as rubber that can be in close contact with food). However, the German magazine Öko-Test found some nitrosamines when testing Jade Harmony. Nevertheless, the amounts were very low, and according to Öko-Test, these nitrosamines are not harmful unless ingested.
