What are The B MATs made of?
Our traditional B MAT is made of 100% rubber with natural and synthetic components. The natural rubber used in our mats is inherently grippy and antimicrobial, making it perfect for a sweaty practice. The synthetic rubber is used to increase the durability and longevity of the mat.
What is the lifespan of a B MAT?
The lifespan of your B MAT will depend on how often you practice, your style of practice, and how you care for your mat. When cared for our mats are designed to support your practice for 3+ years. For more information on how to clean your mat go to our Cleaning Page
Why is there a smell to the B MAT?
We pride ourselves in not using harsh chemicals, finishes or sealants on our mats. With that said any smell omitted from our mats is going to be the natural rubber scent which is inherent to the material used to make up the mat. This natural rubber scent is most apparent (but still fairly mild) first out of packaging but will dissipate with time and increased air exposure.
How should I roll and store my mat?
When your B MAT is not in use, it should be stored indoors, away from direct sunlight. Direct sun exposure to your B MAT can cause UV damage and dehydration. Your B MAT can be used outdoors, however it should never be left in direct sunlight for an extended period of time. When rolling your B MAT for storage, please roll it with the logo facing the outward. This will prevent creasing in your B MAT.
Can I practice or store my mat outside?
It is best to avoid prolonged periods of direct sunlight, as sunlight can oxidize the rubber material of the B MAT therefore compromising its grip and colour. This can occur directly if left outside in the sun or indirectly through car/home/studio windows.

What if my mat is dusty?
Dust is totally normal when you first start using your new mat. The surface texture of our mats attract dust at first because of their grippy texture. The dust attraction will go away after you’ve used your mat for a few weeks – all the more reason to get your yoga on!
What if there is discolouration showing on my mat?
It is completely normal to see some slight variance in the colour of the mat, and it may result from the mat drying out. To fix this, we recommend regularly wiping the mat down with water or giving it a deep clean. See our Cleaning Page
for more details.
What if there are some marks on the surface of the mat?
It is completely normal to see some nicks or wear in the surface of the mat and part of this is a trade off for the grippy nature of the mat. We recommend keeping the mat hydrated by wiping it down with water, and avoid heavy sliding activities to minimize this type of wear. You may also notice darker spots on our lighter-coloured mats which is completely normal.
What is your warranty on the B MAT?
There is a one year warranty on all B MATs. Warranty is only in effect if mat has been cared for in accordance with our Cleaning Instructions. Warranty will not cover damage caused by sun exposure, improper care and maintenance, dirt or stains, normal wear and tear, or any alterations made to the mat. Mats provided under our warranty program are not eligible under this warranty.
