Sarah Chambers is the founder of Hugger Mugger™. She was an accomplished woodworker when she discovered Yoga. The sport's tremendous impact of her health made Yoga a way of life for Sarah. She began developing wooden and fabric tools to help with her practice in 1986.
She began developing products for fellow yogis, including the company's namesake, Hugger Muggers. She developed apparel meant to conceal and comfort. Since the word "hugger-mugger" means "to conceal" the catchy name, Hugger Mugger fit.
Among Hugger Mugger's most notable designs is the Tapas Sticky Mat. Predecessor mats were not designed specifically for Yoga and would deteriorate quickly with use. The Tapas Sticky Mat was the first long-term performance yoga mat and continues to set the standards for the industry. For more than 25 years, Hugger Mugger has been known as an innovator of technically advanced yoga products serving yoga teachers and students throughout the world. For every online sale, Hugger Mugger gives back by donating a percentage of the profit to a different organization each quarter.

This mat doesn't lay flat real well and it doesn't come with anything to hold it in place like a string or case. For the price I would have expected at least a string handle.

- Danielle E.Verified BuyerRated 3 out of 5 stars2 years agoReviewingHugger Mugger Earth Elements Eco Yoga Mat 72" 5mm SkyNot sticky, doesn't lay flat, easily marked
I really wanted to like this mat because it is eco-friendly, but unfortunately it hasn't met my expectations. The mat is pretty slippery, and I am not someone who gets very sweaty. And, after each use, I can see marks on the mat. I read a review prior to purchasing about the ends not staying flat and hoped that after time it would flatten - unfortunately not the case. I have had the mat for over a month now and no change at all.On the positive side though, it is very light, and is much more comfortable than I had expected. I usually have concerns being on my knees, but haven't had as many issues with this mat.Preferred Type of Yoga Practice Vinyasa, MeditationLevel of Yoga Expertise IntermediateFrequency (a week) 2-4Perspiration Level LightDurability Star RatingRated 3.0 on a scale of 1 to 5

I love everything about this mat: the thickness, the texture (very grippy), even the color! So happy with my purchase.Preferred Type of Yoga Practice VinyasaLevel of Yoga Expertise AdvancedFrequency (a week) 2-4Perspiration Level LightDurability Star RatingRated 5.0 on a scale of 1 to 5
