Blank Yoga: The World's Cleanest Yoga Mat

Yoga Mats. Reinvented

Problem

Who would have thought that an average mat carries more germs and bacteria than airplane seats, toilet seats, and smartphones combined! It is also a hotbed for toenail fungi, can transfer herpes, staph and strep infections, and can cause acne.

We’ve all been there: you position yourself for a Downward Dog - and it hits you right in the nose. “It” being the “yogaroma,” the annoying stink that rises from the mat. First rule of yoga: you do not talk about “yogaroma.” Second rule of yoga: you DO NOT talk about “yogaroma.” But there, we said it.

Solution

Enter Nature. 

The antimicrobial technology we integrated into Blank’s Yoga Mats has existed in nature for ages and is literally precious. It hides in tiny silver salts naturally found in water and soil that repel microbes and inhabits unpleasant odors from developing.   

This technology is being used by many athletic clothing brands, like Adidas, Lululemon, and Converse, but we are the first to bring it to premium yoga mats. Why, you’ll ask? Because we don’t shy away from stinky issues when it comes to sweaty matters! And it might as well start with the mat. You need to breathe when you lower yourself down for a Savasana, you know. CLEAN MAT = CLEAR MIND = CLEAN PRACTICE. 

Design

MATERIAL Natural Rubber is the highest quality and the most durable material for yoga mats. 

DESIGN The Slip Resistant Knobs are designed to push deeper into asanas. Miniature knobs provide the needed traction. Polyester thread allows for smooth transitions between poses. 

GRIP You''ll never have to readjust your mat during class. The Blank Mat won’t slip no matter how hard you try.

CUSHION This mat will give you ultimate support and cushioning due to the open cell natural rubber.

SIZE We wanted you to have your best hours of practice on Blank Yoga Mat's, so we threw in a few inches in length and width for good measure. In addition to the standard size mat running at 24 x 68 inches, we offer our XL yoga mat that measures a full 71 inches long x 26 inches wide and is ⅕ inch or 5mm thick. With more real estate to cover, you can go deeper and wider into your practice. Or just finally fit on your mat.

You care about our planet. So do we!

With yoga and fitness blowing up globally, worldwide manufacturing facilities are generating more and more pollution from the production of yoga mats, blocks, and other gear.

As you probably figured out by now, we don’t take shortcuts. At Blank, we’re very committed to reducing our waste and offsetting our environmental impact, but we are also as first to admit that we are, in fact, a burden to the environment. Our Taiwanese factory is ISO14001 certified, it manufactures energy efficient and without pollution. In addition, we use absolutely NO chemicals, solvents or toxic substances throughout the production cycle.
