Love my Cork mat. It is warmer than my jute mat and lighter. I've used it in several yoga yin and hatha classes and enjoyed the feel of the mat. Going to give it a good work out over the Christmas break. Let's see how grippy it is. Happy yoga everyone. Namaste.

I've been using cork maths for years and I've never seen anything like it.
I don't won't to be to harsh to my fellow yogis but for the price it feels so cheap.
The corck layer is hardly 1mm thick, I practically bought a big roll of foam.

Was looking for a sustainable mat to replace my old one which was damaged - was keen to try Cork Space after some research, plus it was on offer too :D

I went for the Balance mat as thought the Pro might be too heavy to carry around. It's heavier than my old one (which wasn't made from the same materials), but not too cumbersome, the strap is great too. Have used a couple of times so far - it's thinner than my old mat so a little hard on the knees, but the material feels like it's good quality and will last. I really like the ethos of the company. Would recommend!

I do realy like this mat. I usually slip on most of the mats and had to buy some anti slide glowes in the past, but after using this one few times I can say, that I am very happy. I can use it without any anoying glowes, I still slide a tiny bid, but its great improvement and I feel more stable. I only have it for few weeks, so cant say how long it will last but considering this should be eco friendly option my expectations are very high and hope I wont be dissapointed 🙂

I really like my mat, I don't slip at all and love the fact it is sustainable. I bought the balance mat and so not the thickest mat available, and it has so far been great for almost every posture I've tried. I quite like being better able to feel the ground through the mat compared to a foam mat; it has helped my balance and I've felt more grounded. The only position that I've found less comfortable is when doing 'superman' type positions that required being on my knees for quite a while, although I have always found this less comfortable, whatever type of mat I've used. I would definitely recommend this mat. Thank you Cork Space!

Sustainable Cork

Cork is a natural raw material which is 100% biodegradable, recyclable and renewable. Our cork bark is sustainably harvested in Portugal from the Cork Oak Tree without harming or cutting down any trees – that regularly grow to the wise old age of 300 years.

Ultimate Grip

Cork contains a magical waxy compound called Suberin - which activates when wet - giving you powerful resistance and grip. The more you sweat - the more you grip. Cork offers a beautiful soft-touch, non-sticky grip.

Perfect Balance

We’ve combined the recycled tree bark of Portuguese cork trees with the natural sap of the rubber tree to create the perfect combination of grip and bounce. Our mats are buttery soft to touch yet firm enough to protect your joints & keep you focused. Cork is filled with millions of pockets of air, which bounce right back when compressed.

Natural Tree Rubber

The base of our mats is made from natural rubber – Sourced in Vietnam from the tree sap of the Hevea Brasiliensis tree a 100% renewable resource that is hand tapped from living rubber trees.

A weighty rubber layer prevents corner rolling, sliding and offers protective & firm cushioning for your joints, no matter how demanding your yoga practice gets.

100 Day Yogi Trial

We want you to be completely in love with your new cork yoga mat. If you feel good, we feel good.

Here’s the deal – Use your mat for 100 days straight! If it’s not the best yoga mat you’ve ever used (or for any other reason whatsoever) just send it back and we’ll refund you in full the day we receive it. No questions asked. Sounds fair?

Seriously – There’s ZERO risk on your part. If you don’t like it (pretty rare) we take the loss for you.

FAQ

How Flexible is Cork

The cork layer is made from tiny bits of compressed cork pieces bonded to a rubber base, this makes the mat super flexible across uneven ground and easy to roll up.

Why Choose Cork Space over Cheaper Alternatives?

Although at first glance they may appear similar, cheaper cork mats that use TPE or PER as they base are not as durable or sustainable. Poorer quality cork can also be more prone to chipping off. Many wonder why they didn’t invest in a better mat (that makes them smile every time) years ago.

Is Cork Sustainable?

Cork is a sustainable material because it can be harvested every 10 to 12 years and replaced with new bark. It also has a low carbon footprint, as the trees are not cut down in order to harvest the cork.

Demand for cork provides much needed investment in the industry, providing jobs and supporting the local economy. The harvesting of cork is a sustainable practice. While cork bark is regrowing, the trees suck up even more CO2 from the surrounding environment which helps combat global warming.

Suitable For Hot Yoga?

Yes – absolutely. It can handle any amount of sweat you can throw at it. Just lay it out flat to dry when you’re home. When wet the cork goes darker.

How Long Is Delivery?

Free tracked courier delivery included with every order (1-3 Working Days). We aim to ship all orders out in one working day. Orders placed before 11am weekdays are typically shipped same day

What Is Your Gurarantee?

Love it or return it within 100 days for a full refund. Free pre-paid returns for UK orders.

What Styles Of Yoga Is Cork Space Suited To?

It can be used with any style of yoga. Practitioners of restorative, meditation or yin yoga styles particularly love its natural feel. While faster Vinyasa styles of yogis love the sweat grip cork provides and the padding of the natural rubber.

Can I Use This For Pilates Or Workouts?

Absolutely, Cork Space is for your daily movement practice. From pilates to home workouts – the mat is there for you.
