Story

 

“Remarkable grip while practicing yoga, especially when I break out in to a major sweat. I love doing Yoga on this eco-friendly (material) mat. Yoga for a good cause.”  

- Vinod R., Food and Beverage Consultant, India / Hong Kong 

 

OUR MISSION

ZOLO Active Fitness & Yoga Mat was born out of a search for the perfect mat -- an exercise mat with a reliable non-slip surface and unrivalled in its eco-friendly properties.

Created by a yoga teacher and practitioner, the ZOLO Active Mat was developed in Asia, where the weather is hot and humid and surprise rain downpours can occur. Cork can be used outdoors in direct sunlight and still remain comfortable to the touch.  It also remains grippier with a more persistent non-slip surface, great on the beach, by a pool or for even the sweatiest "hot yoga" sessions.  

The creator's fascination with cork as a sustainable material sprung after inspiration from watching cork bark cutting on cork oak trees. No trees were cut down. 

Sick of the smelly, dirty plastic fitness and yoga mats which constantly make you slip?  The ZOLO Active Mat made from cork could change the way you enjoy your fitness and practice.

Try out our ZOLO Active Fitness & Yoga Mat and slip no more!


BENEFITS

ZOLO Active Fitness & Yoga Mat is made of 100% sustainable material – natural cork, recycled & renewed rubber. With a classy look, this unique product serves numerous benefits. A perfect medium to practice your exercise in any location, in any climate.

  • Non-slip grip with sweat & water (cork is made of suberin - a non-slip waxy material)
  • Not hot to use in direct sunlight
  • Soft on the body, strong for practice
  • Easy to carry
  • Easy to unroll
  • Easy to clean
  • Dries quickly
  • Hypo-allergenic - less likely to have allergic reactions and rashes
  • Anti-microbial - naturally kills bacteria, mold and odor
  • Can be used anywhere
  • Made from 100% SUSTAINABLE material - natural cork & recycled rubber
  • No trees were cut down in the process
  • Safe for kids

*Tip: Spray water to mold into your mat and before practice for better grip.


ECO-FRIENDLY

Once cork trees reach 25 years old, they are eligible for the bark to be stripped down every 9 years.  Cork Oak Trees are from Southwest Europe and Northwest Africa (Quercus Suber), and Eastern Asia (Quercus Variabilis) and has a lifetime of 300 years. According to carbon footprint studies, cork is one of the most environmentally friendly harvested materials in the world as no trees are cut down.  Based in Asia, we used the cork from the Quercus Variabilis trees.

Cork is composed of suberin – a non-slip, waxy, impermeable material.  This means you get a good (or even better) grip with sweat and water on your mat! It has great traction in a heated room, humid weather and rainy days in the park! Not to mention, it does not get too hot on a sunnny day. 

Cork is anti-microbial.  This means it naturally kills bacteria, mold & odor. However a gentle wipe down with water is recommended. Cork dries quickly. 

Cork is also hypoallergenic. Have you ever had a skin reaction to the typical Thermoplastic Elastomer (TPE) or Polyvinyl Choloride (PVC) exercise or yoga mats? Cork mats are unlikely to cause any allergic reaction.

TESTIMONIALS

"I have been an active yogi for the past 15 years and as the CEO of a software company, my travels have taken me to many parts of the world including India where I practice with the Viniyoga healing foundation​ in Chennai​. I have recently come across a new type of yoga mat made of cork from ZO​LO​ Wellness.  I very much like the texture which makes it very comfortable and absorbs perspiration very well. Also, it's longer than other mats which is great for tall guys like me. Finally it is very pretty and looks different from other mats."  - Jean-Hervé J., CEO of Software Company, France / London

"The mat is the perfect upgrade of my yoga kit. I perspire a lot, whether in hot classes or not, and not satisfied with simply putting a towel on a mat which slips and slides. This mat has a very firm grip under wet and hot conditions, and the texture feels natural and organic. Perfect for hot vinyasa classes.” Nick Y., Art Connoisseur, Hong Kong

"I am a dancer and have been practicing yoga for many years, but had never tried a mat made out of cork before. As soon as I set foot on the ZOLO Active Cork Mat, it exceeded any expectations of comfort and durability. The aspect that appealed to me the most about the ZOLO Active Mat was that when wet, it somehow had even more grip. This mat is ideal for any yogi who wants to move freely while completely trusting the support underneath them.”  - Susanna N., Dancer, Ohio / Hong Kong

“Remarkable grip while practicing yoga, especially when I break out in to a major sweat. I love doing Yoga on this eco-friendly (material) mat. Yoga for a good cause.”  - Vinod R., Food and Beverage Consultant, India / Hong Kong 

"As a regular participant in Soccer/Football, a couple of years ago I found that stretching through yoga is a great complement in terms of taking better care of my muscles as I often felt very tight after playing. Since moving to Hong Kong I started to practice many styles/teachings of yoga such as Vinyasa, Yin and Hot Classes. The problem I found was the studio mats lacked grip (especially during hot classes) and I found this inadequate to perform yoga safely as well as being able to fully conduct the stretches. The ZOLO Active Mat solved all issues, not only is it compact, easy to carry and can roll out perfectly (with PVC the ends curl and takes time to fully be flat), the extra grip made my post football match stretching and yoga practice a lot easier and most importantly safer to do. In terms of appearance the yoga mat looks stylish and is friendly to the environment which is key as I strongly disapprove of the ‘standard’ PVC plastic mats. Whilst using this product you can sense ZOLO has used materials to add a personal touch and to counteract problems found during exercise." M Casalis., Business Intelligence for an Auction House, London / Hong Kong

“在這張由環保物料製成的活動蓆練習瑜伽實在是一種享受。防滑功能令我就算在練習瑜伽時大量流汗都不會滑倒。”

- Vinod R., 餐飲業顧問, 印度 / 香港

我們的使命

ZOLO Active Fitness & Yoga Mat - 一張具有防滑功能的環保活動蓆。

ZOLO Active Fitness & Yoga Mat 由一位瑜伽愛好者兼導師所設計,有感亞洲的天氣炎熱,潮濕而且多雨,於是希望設計出一張適合亞洲地區使用的環保活動蓆。

ZOLO Active Fitness & Yoga Mat 由水松木製成,即使在戶外使用,或被陽光直接照射,蓆面依然不會過熱。水松木的好處,在於它非常防滑,所以無論在海灘還是在熱瑜伽的課堂中,大家都不需要擔心滑倒。除此以外,在製造此活動蓆的過程當中完全不用砍伐樹木,相當符合環保原則。

如果你對你的舊瑜伽蓆感到厭倦,請即購買 ZOLO Active Fitness & Yoga Mat,保證可以為你帶來全新的運動體驗!


好處

ZOLO Active Fitness & Yoga Mat 由全天然物料製造,而且造型典雅,讓你隨時隨地,不論陰晴都可以享受運動樂趣。

環保

水松木來自軟木橡樹,軟木橡主要遍佈西南歐洲和​​非洲西北部,到了25歲後,它的樹皮每九年就會剝落一次, 所以在製作活動蓆的過程仲不需要砍伐任何樹木,所以水松木被視為是最環保的材料。水松木非常防滑和防滲。適合在潮濕的環境下使用。而且,即使外面的天氣有多熱都不會使它太熱。而且,水松木是抗微生物的。這意味著它自然殺死細菌,霉菌和異味。使用後,只需要用清水輕輕一擦,蓆面就很快會變得乾爽。 水松是低過敏性的,所以使用後出現皮膚敏感的機會非常低。

用家評語

“我開始練習瑜伽已經超過15年,作為一家軟件公司的CEO,我需要到不同地方工作,自從在印度開始接觸瑜伽後,我就對瑜伽愛不惜手。最近我發現了一款由水松木製造而成的活動蓆,不但外觀非常好,質地非常舒服,而且十分吸汗。而且,這張蓆比坊間的蓆要長一些,對於我這種身形比較高的人來說十分適合。”

Jean-Hervé J., 軟件公司CEO, 法國 / 倫敦

“這張活動蓆和我的瑜伽套裝簡直是絕配! 我平時上瑜伽課的時候排汗比較多,如果把毛巾放在蓆上會很不方便,這張蓆的質感帶給我的感覺是很天然,就算在潮濕或者炎熱的地方下做瑜伽,依然可以保持乾爽  ”
