A Superior Cork Yoga Mat

€20,484

226





LATY is a brand that creates mindfully designed and timeless products that will last a lifetime without compromising beauty or functionality. The BHUMI MAT will improve any practitioners' alignment and posture consistency thanks to specific, low profile visual cues. Additionally, due to cork's amazing natural properties, it will provide you the essential grounding energy (so important!) in our busy daily lives. 






We asked advanced yoga instructors what they thought the number one issue was in yoga, they overwhelmingly responded.. alignment! Even in advanced classes where the flow goes fast, instructors notice how challenging consistent and correct alignment can be. That is why LATY collaborated with highly advanced yoga teachers to create designs based on accurate posture and alignment. The result is the BHUMI MAT in three timeless, subtle and attractive designs where key posture reference points are provided.

Hello lovely,

Founder of LATY!



This campaign is promoted by Backercamp. Since 2012, Backercamp has helped 5,000+ creators make their projects a reality, raising over $250MM through crowdfunding.

Risks and challenges

We have been working for over 9 months on this project, we are working hard to bring to you the best product, so we wanted the designs to be impeccable. We have established a very trusted relationship with our suppliers and we can count on them to perform in the production. However, there is always the challenge of lead times as it will depend on their production schedule how fast they can manufacture. If there is something we solemnly promise to give you full transparency into the issues and solve them in a way that leaves our backers happy and proud to support our company.

Supply Chain Risk: Sometimes a machine or tool breaks. Sometimes a factory loses power for a day. Sometimes we get the wrong parts or materials in. These things happen from time to time and can affect how long it takes to build our products.

Shipping Risk: Global shipping and warehousing logistics is mind-boggling. Hence we outsource that stuff to experts. But even the experts aren’t immune to weather, port congestion, and other uncontrollable factors.

Just know, we will do all we can on our end to prepare well. We will be in touch for updates on the project, if there is anything coming up we will let you know.

Disclaimer : Unless the order has been improperly fulfilled or is damaged, our items are non-refundable once the product has been shipped. Please note we have not included any import taxes, duties, or customs fees in the price as it varies from country to country. The import taxes and duties are at the backer's charge if there is any.

Long-lasting design

By the nature of the material which is cork, you are acquiring a durable, long-lasting mat that will be there for you as long as you also take care of it!

Reusability and recyclability

We are working with our suppliers to minimize packaging, for instance removing the plastic roll that come with it. We are using recycled or biodegradable packaging.
We also want to implement a “take-back” program, this may take time. We are based in Paris but we would love to see this implemented in all major cities where we will be present.

Sustainable materials

Cork comes from the bark of cork oak trees. These amazing trees are capable of regenerating their bark making this incredible material a 100% renewable. Therefore it is both recyclable and biodegradable. The underneath layer is natural ethically sourced rubber.
The rubber’s dense structure, elasticity and waterproof properties make it the perfect companion material to combine with the cork.

Environmentally friendly factories

Our mats are produced in China in a ethically certified factory as well as all raw materials are sourced ethically from Portugal, Taiwan and Vietnam.
