365 day return policy. Use our mat. Beat it up. It’s ok.

Does your yoga mat do this? We use the best raw materials so we can offer the best return policy. But please be kind with us. Rubber wears down unlike some plastics. We are trying to promote a more empathetic way of selling on Amazon.

Why is rubber for UNHEATED yoga? Is rubber tree sap slippery?

Tomuno is just trying to inject some honesty into yoga mat marketing. Some yoga mat companies don’t mention what their mats are made of or make claims like, “stays grippy in even the hottest yoga practice!” We, respectfully, believe no yoga mat can do this.

Yoga mat grip and cushion depend on the raw material. We do not claim to have any proprietary technology. There are 3 major types of yoga mats: PVC which typically retails for $17, TPE ($40), and then natural rubber ($63+). In our opinion, as you move up in quality tiers, each type of mat provides grip for a higher and higher percent of yogis with natural rubber at the top. No yoga mat raw material can guarantee grip for 100% of yogis though even in unheated yoga.

Yoga teachers say for hot yoga you will need a hot yoga towel. Why buy a nice mat if it is hidden under a towel?

Worried about slipping? If you sort yoga mats by average star rating on Amazon we are typically one of the top mats. But no mat can provide grip for 100% of yogis.

Are you considering another mat? What is it made of?

Why else might I not like Tomuno? Our mats…

1) Smell of rubber.

2) Weigh 5.6 lbs.

3) May take a few weeks time to ‘break-in’ and achieve full grip.

4) Do not last a lifetime. Tree rubber is not plastic.

5) Require special care (no direct sunlight, essential oils, washing machines, etc.).

We use the best raw materials so we can offer a great guarantee. But please be kind. Rubber wears down unlike some plastics. We are trying to promote a more empathetic way of selling on Amazon.

  • Looking at another mat brand? What is it made of? Yoga mats are just rectangles of material. Raw material quality determines yoga mat quality (i.e., grip and cushion). There are 3 major and several minor types of yoga mats… PVC (typically retails for $17), TPE ($40), and rubber tree sap ($63+). While rubber is a very expensive raw material we feel it dominates the yoga studio / teacher market.

I’m Impressed! The Iyengar yoga studio I practice at is quite picky about the products it sells at its boutique, but was enthused about the Tomuno, so I decided to try one out. The first thing you notice is that the mat is very thick and cushy — it approaches the thickness of a Manduka, without the substantial weight. This is ultimately why I bought this mat, and thanks to its 5 mm pillow-like cushioning, it makes my yoga practice substantially more comfortable, especially on my knees, wrists, and…

great mat- great customer service I bought this mat after endless research on buying a new mat. I had cash from a mat that I got for Christmas that didn’t work out, an amazon gift card, and after contacting Rob, the owner, with some initial questions I had about the mat, an additional coupon code. I have to say that as a micro-manufacturer (I’m a potter), I (and everyone else who does business with the public) could stand to learn a thing or two from Rob. He gives great personal support- answered my questions within an hour-…

Great mat/terrific service I purchased the Tomuno mat at the suggestion of my yoga teacher. She was spot-on right in recommending both the mat and the company. In this age of big box stores it is refreshing to work with a company that is there and available to its customers. As soon as I placed my order I received a personal email from the owner thanking me for my order and reminding me about their product guarantee. There is no need to take him up on that guarantee as I love the mat; it gives the just right amount of…
