Made for Good
Made for good
Since the beginnings of the Black Mat, Manduka has been inspired and guided by a responsibility to reduce global consumption by making better products that last longer. Our design approach is rooted in principles of conservancy and transparency, creating mats, towels, props and apparel while also making every possible effort to minimize environmental waste. We’re constantly searching for innovative partners and updated technologies to further respect the land upon which we place our mats and our intentions.
As a company, we understand the impossibility of leaving no environmental footprint. But what we can commit to is 100% transparency, being clear about the decisions we make and, most importantly, where we have room to improve. We consistently strive to be better, stronger, kinder and more conscious of our actions and their global impact. Sustainability isn’t simply a story. It’s part of our DNA and part of our evolving practice.
Soulfully Engineered No other yoga mat is built with the precision and passion of Manduka. Designed by yogis and loved by teachers worldwide, carefully-selected materials are paired with thoughtful design for the tiniest environmental footprint possible. The result? High performance products with an even higher purpose - to keep the focus on your practice.

Does the world really need another yoga apparel line?
Long before we launched our apparel collection, we knew we wanted to be different, to seize the opportunity to lead by responsible example - even when it would have been easier or less expensive to do otherwise.
NATURE'S / TECH
Inspired by nature as the highest form of technology, our clothing collection is designed using premium fabrics sourced primarily from environmentally responsible materials.
From the fibers of our being to the fibers of our apparel, a curated collection of sustainably-sourced clothing which serves our practice for as long as possible.
The result is an apparel collection not only made for you, but made for yoga.
|Thoughtful Apparel||Over 20 billion pounds of textiles end up in landfills each year. A brief timeline of how it all happened and why we were inspired todo things differently.|
|1929||The average middle class man owns six work outfits. The average middle class woman owns nine. When clothing becomes damaged, people repair and keep wearing it.|
|1990s||Shopping is offered through televised channels and e-commerce. Fast fashion retailers move production overseas.|
|2003||Consumerism explodes. Total credit card payments increase by 3.8 million in just ten years. Most of them are clothing purchases.|
