Ethically made in Portugal
This product was ethically made in Portugal in small family-owned cork farms and, for every product sold, we donate a percentage to our youth mental health partners.

Sustainable Practices
No tree(s) are ever cut to create our products. Instead, they are made by stripping the bark during peak harvest times. This harvesting process helps regenerate the tree, contributing to their thriving live span of up to 200 years. In addition to the sustainability of our production, our products are 100% recyclable, vegan, & free of plastic, rubber, and/or latex.

Fair Wages
Portugal’s forests produce half of the world’s supply of cork, carefully regulating the industry to protect the integrity of the environment while creating high-wage seasonal jobs for 10k+ workers annually. Corc Yoga only sources, partners with, & supports small family-owned cork farms & factories.

Eco-Friendly
Cork trees naturally store carbon to regenerate their bark. Every year, cork oak forests absorb up to 20 million tons of CO2, while reducing greenhouse gases. These forests support one of the highest levels of biodiversity among forest habitats, as well as the highest diversity of plants found anywhere in the world. So, the best way to support the preservation of these habitats is to choose cork over other synthetic products.

This is my first Corc Yoga mat and I am delighted with it! I appreciate the natural and regenerative practices with using cork plus it feels great and smells subtly sweet and woody. It is so superior to any "natural" rubber mats I have tried since they persistently off gas. I am also very grateful that no synthetic plastic is part of the mat. The cork mat seems to keep an even temperature suitable for practice in cooler or warmer settings where it maintains a balanced temperature. I have not used mine yet for a very vigorous practice but I think with care that could work. I do hope to get another Corc mat someday and would like it if a slightly thicker/softer mat might be offered as an option. Thanks again for helping create a lovely product.

    Corclicious!
    I did some research before investing in a new yoga mat. The Alentejo mat feels so good underfoot and the depth of pattern and color is fantastic! Who knew a yoga mat could be so luxe.

    Love my cork mat!
    I practice every day (and often a sweaty practice) and I have yet to find one that stays grippy and doesn’t get gross over time. So happy to have found this mat!! The grip gets better the sweatier I get, and plus it’s just gorgeous (definitely buy the cute all natural sling holder as well). The mat is firm which I like.
