About

Our Intent

Our intent is to create a brand that stretches beyond just high quality, sustainable yoga products. We want to create a tribe of mindful, aware and healthy individuals. With this in mind, we engineered designs and materials that would enable the warrior to exceed their limitations and generate a life of positivity and possibility. We use fibers that honor both mother earth and us, and use only the highest quality of materials. 

Our cork yoga mats are sustainably sourced without harming any trees. They are chemical free so you won’t be breathing in any toxins and neither will they be transferred to you through the pores. By using only the highest quality eco-friendly materials we have substantially improved the traditional yoga mat by making them with better grip, stability and cushioning! The best part about our yoga mat designs is that you will find a gorgeous representation of the vibrant, colourful, and strong Indian culture.

Our Design Journey  

 Yoga originated in India over 5000 years ago. It was practiced as a way to sacrifice the ego through self knowledge, action (karma yoga) and wisdom (jnana yoga). We hand draw everything to keep the tradition of handcrafted culture in India alive. The designs are directly inspired by the country's vibrant and colourful canvas. All our designs are made using water based inks to prevent any chemicals.

Who we are

Hi! My name is Sonakshi and I am the founder of Shakti Warrior. I started this venture with my Mother, who is the artist behind the brand, and my best friend, who is the salesforce. Shakti is the powerful female energy that runs this brand. We are proud to be a woman owned and operated company.

We Care  

Shakti Warrior is deeply committed to empowering women from all walks of life. We partnered up with a group of underprivileged women and taught them basic sewing skills. After mastering these techniques, they mindfully crafted all of the Shakti Warrior Yoga Mat Bags. They are paid fair wages, work in encouraging conditions, served nutritious food and are provided with healthcare. We are grateful to work with their ever-smiling faces and continue to develop this relationship. 

We upcycle old yoga mats by making flip flops out of them and then distributing them to underprivileged kids in India. This is our eco-friendly solution to repurposing old mats. The problem with PVC mats is that its production typically causes pollution; the mat itself is filled with toxins, and is not biodegradable, so it usually ends up in a landfill or the ocean. The process to destroy PVC mats creates even more pollution. Seeing this massive problem we decided to start upcycling the yoga mats. What we stand for is what we stand on.

 Our Designs 

Risks and challenges

Our team has worked relentlessly to create the products you deserve. Last year we successfully produced a few designs of our cork mats and started selling them on different channels and it went really well. We now have over a year of experience in this market and we also managed to get a lot of customer feedback. We listened to you and produced a new and improved range! We are extremely excited to share these designs with you.

Our manufacturing team is all set and ready to go, all we have to do is submit the final order. We have also established our processes by keeping the customer in the heart, so we promise to give you a positive experience.

There is always a risk of a slight delay with the manufacturing, however we have prepared well and will work to make sure that we can ship the mats on time. If there are ever any problems along the way, we will keep you in the loop.

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