How Your Printed Yoga Mat is Made
Your designs are expertly printed onto the fabric of your yoga mat. Our team of technicians bond the fabric to a hessian lattice before mounting it onto the padded, natural rubber base. This base provides comfort for your workout, ensuring a soft, yet supportive surface for you to exercise on. Our specialist dye sublimation fuses the ink into the fibres of the fabric, ensuring the print is long-lasting as well as being crisp and vibrant. Your custom yoga mats, UK made, are created entirely in our studio in London. It is hand-stitched by skilled seamstresses, who make every yoga mat to order.
Your new yoga mat should only be spot cleaned, which means that the visible spot or stain should be cleaned by hand using a cleaning agent. As this method of cleaning involves targeting only specific areas at a time, it's possible that residual watermarks may be left behind from the cleaning solvents, or the area that is cleaned will stand out more than the rest of the product. So please be careful.
Many high quality yoga mats require a little breaking in, and your new custom printed yoga mat is no exception. We suggest using it as much as possible in the first instance, if you find it to be a little slippery. Walk on it, sit on it, even stretch on it in front of the TV. You can also use a micro fibre towel on top of the fabric, if you require a little extra grip.
You can have a lot of fun designing your own yoga mat. We recommend avoiding plain blocks of colour in your design. This is because the natural rubber base of the mat can show through slightly, which might interfere with your design. Bold patterns work best when contemplating your ideas. We love original artwork, or a powerful photograph that will inspire you and help your mind relax. You can choose from 6 different trim colours; black, maroon, green, blue, stone and pink. Opt for the colour that best complements your design, that will help it pop!
Reviews for Yoga Mats
based on 4 customer reviews
The mat was thinner that I expected, didn't have the bounce back as I had imagined it would. Knowing the mm depth would have been helpful (I could have asked also but didn't). The printed design is excellent. I didn't like the carry strap - it needed to be pink. The delivery was great and the process of ordering good. It is quite pricey but I understand it's made by hand.
Great quality image and speedy service. Really pleased.
I was really happy with the finsished product. I uploaded a pic which wasn’t great quality but the result was great :)
The yoga mat is awesome. The quality is really great and the printing was perfect. It was given as a present and in her own words "it's the best present this year"!

Frequently asked questions:
How big are the custom printed yoga mats?
Your new yoga mat measures 63cm wide and 180cm long. This is the perfect size for enjoying many different yoga movements, and other exercises. It won't take up too much room, yet it will give you enough space to stretch and pose comfortably.
Is it easy to clean?
The custom printed yoga mats are so easy to clean and take care of. We all get sweaty when we exercise, so it is important to take care of your mat, to keep it hygienic and clean. Your yoga mat needs to be spot cleaned with a cleaning solvent to maintain its integrity. It's advisable to not get them too soiled as spot cleaning cleans only specific areas of the product at one time.

What's the best resolution to print in?
We print at 200dpi, which is a good combination of quality and file weight. Ideally, your image should be scaled to 100% at 200dpi, this means that no resizing of your file occurs stopping any interpolation.
Should I save my file as a TIFF or JPEG?
For multi-coloured or very detailed files we recommend using a tiff format, but they must be flattened. For simple colours and low detail files, a jpeg is fine.
Which colour model should I choose? RGB or CMYK?
We advise providing images in the RGB colour space. Specifically using the sRGB image profile, to achieve best colour results. What does this mean? In your editing software choose RGB as the working space, and assign the image profile as sRGB (full name sRGB IEC61966-2.1)
What does GSM mean?
Grams per Square Meter (GSM) is an international standard for measuring the weight of paper or fabric. GSM uses the weight of a square meter (1000 x 1000mm) as an indication of the weight and thickness of a given fabric. We class 20-100gsm as light (summer fabrics, gauzes and fine silks), 101-249 gsm as medium (most clothing fabrics) and 250+ gsm as heavy (upholstery fabrics, and other specialist fabrics).
What are the bleed areas?
When designing your product, it’s best to make sure that your image is slightly larger than needed. In printing, the extra printed image is referred to as a “Bleed Area” or margin, and it is removed from the finished piece. A bleed area acts as a buffer for slight inconsistencies in the manufacturing process. however, it’s important to fill your bleed areas completely, or you may end up with white, unprinted strips along the edge of your finished product.
Do you print on garments a customer supplies?
Unfortunately not. All our garments are printed on flat fabric and sewn into finished products, which gives a better, finished result and all-over print. We test meticulously so that we know what gets the best results on our fabrics, and our facilities cater perfectly to them. We do however print sublimation paper to order, so if you have access to a heat press you can press your fabrics or flat garments easily.
Can you Align a Pattern or design across panels of a garment?
We always strive for the greatest accuracy when printing and constructing your garments. However, due to unavoidable stretch or movement of the fabric during the stitching process, we cannot guarantee perfect pattern registration across garment seams. We are generally accurate within 2-3mm, which Is close enough for most patterns but may show slight issues with detailed geometric patterns.
Can I print my own Labels?
Most of our garments now come with printable label space for you to add your own company information and branding! If you would like to sew in your own labels, we also offer Printed Fabric Labels here.
How is your fabric printing eco-friendly?
With environmental consciousness in mind, our fabrics are all printed using completely water-based inks. This means no chemicals or solvents are used. Our heat fixing procedure fixes the colours and prints, avoiding the downsides of steaming, such as excess or contaminated water returning into the waste system. We have one facility in London where we conduct all the printing, production and fulfillment.
