My inspiration comes in lots of different forms. Nature has always been a big inspiration for me. As you can see with my Dragonfly yoga mat, Daisy Yoga Mat or Lily of The Valley yoga mat. Yoga itself is also one of my big inspirations also. You will see the Om symbol on a lot of my mats. The Om symbol has the meaning of enlightenment, which for me has been an important part of my yoga practice. I also have a Chakra yoga mat, which has to do with the 7 chakras in your body.
So, when I find inspiration I then do some sketches to see if it will look good on the mat and the layout. Then, depending on the weather I will either paint the mat down in my studio or on my back porch overlooking my backyard. But, for anyone that lives in the Northwest, you know that there is only a good few months out of the year. So, most of my painting is done in my studio.
I really want my mats to be as custom as possible, that is why I offer all different sizes and colors. I am able to offer Standard, which is 68"x24"x1/8"; Extra Long, which is 84"x 24"x1/4"; Child Size, which is 56"x24"x1/8"; and Pilates size, which is 76"x24"x1/4". I also offer an eco-friendly mat, which measures 1/4"x23"x72" with rounded corners. They are Latex, PVC, Phthalates and Chloride free. So you can feel good that you are doing your part to save Mother Earth!
