The Ritual Rug; A Handwoven Yoga Mat

$28,178

161

The Ritual Rug is a handwoven yoga mat made up of the environmentally conscious materials organic hemp, and non-toxic yoga mat rubber. This mat provides a grippy, slip-free surface as well as the cushion of a traditional yoga mat. 

The Ritual Rug has an amazingly comfortable non-slip surface. It's like a towel and yoga mat in one!

With your donations, we will be introducing two colorways that will be available in two variations. 

SAGE

SAND

The Ritual Rug was designed to improve upon the typical yoga mat.

The handmade structure of The Ritual Rug provides both grip and cushion where needed, making it ideal for a variety of yoga practices. It resembles the rugs yogis have practiced on for centuries, while integrating the modern rubber surface we are accustomed to practicing yoga on in modern times. 

The Ritual Rug design improves on 3 defining qualities of a yoga mat; functionality, versatility, and sustainability. 

FUNCTIONALITY:  To prevent slipping, ribbing is created for traction through the top and bottom of the rug by the alternating materials of hemp and rubber.

 VERSATILITY: The Ritual Rug is more than a typical yoga mat. Take it to the park, on a hike, or to the beach.

SUSTAINABILITY: We do not take this topic lightly, and have worked hard to go the extra mile. We employ ethical, handmade manufacturing which reduces our carbon footprint, and puts jobs in the human hand rather than a machine. Not to mention, the conscious materials we choose to source are the most sustainable we could find. We are on a mission to create a nurturing, positive relationship between our consumers, our makers, and the planet.

We want to re-imagine the yoga mat, by making it something you acutally want to bring around with you, where ever that may be!

 The flexible quality of The Ritual Rug makes it ideal for traveling.

The Ritual Rug compactly folds up, to fit in a suitcase, or even a backpack.

The Ritual Rug is not just a functional, and versatile yoga mat, it is also beautiful.

 Yes... that is a yoga mat. 

The Ritual Rug does not ring, beep, or vibrate... it is an invitation.

By traveling in person to our materials and manufacturing sources, we have ensured the success of production. 

We have been working with an incredible, progressive weaving studio in India with highly skilled artisans. They are trained, and now masters at weaving The Ritual Rug and are ready to go...

 We have found a reliable yoga mat distributor that is renowned for their integrity, quality, and environmental credentials. 

Our Hemp distributor is located in Northern China, where the hemp crop has been farmed for thousands of years. 

"Grown since 800 BC, Hemp is the first plant cultivated for textiles; Hemp is resistant to pests and grows too densely to permit weed growth so it needs no pesticides or herbicides, in fact no chemicals of any kind. It is the strongest natural fiber, naturally antimicrobial and resistant to UV. It is amazingly comfortable, breathable and cool to the touch" - Hemp distributer.

In the hopes that our Kickstarter is funded, we will bust our butts to get  your orders out! We are confident that we have created a truly unique and desirable yoga mat. Now, we need YOU!

 Please note: for rewards that require a color choice, or any further action, you will receive a survey at the completion of this Kickstarter only if it is fully funded. This survey will be sent to your email, and once it is sent back, completed, we will get your order out to you as soon as humanly possible!

 the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU!!!!

Risks and challenges

There are certainly risks with developing and putting a new product into scaled production. Our primary risk and challenge is ensuring we meet the demand this Kickstarter poses. However, we have gone the extra miles to ensure quality and timely delivery.

We have gone far beyond establishing potential manufacturing to create our product. We personally and quite literally traced the supply chain that your ritual rug will go through, and along the way created reliable face-to-face relationships with each and every partner that it touches. Each step, start to finish in the making of a ritual rug has been vetted and analyzed by us for potential hiccups from sourcing; from the weaving, to shipping.

After going through rounds of development to improve the quality, we went one step further, by putting a test run into production in order to observe and learn from any unforeseen challenges. When this test run arrived in our hands at a better quality than expected, we felt more than confident about bringing it to market.

With a successful campaign, we will diligently do everything on our end to keep production on track. You can expect to hear from us with any updates along the way and if there are any delays you will be kept in the loop!

We have sorted out our supply chain, managed a successful round of test production, and have refined the product to meet the standards relayed.

Disclaimer : Unless the order has been improperly fulfilled or is damaged, our items are non-refundable. We do not cover any import taxes, duties, or customs fees.
