Be The Change
Jade is everything you want in a yoga mat – cool colours, incredible grip, great comfort and eco-friendly. Jade mats are made in a sustainable manner with natural rubber tapped from rubber trees, a renewable resource. Unlike other mats, Jade mats contain no PVC, EVA or other synthetic rubber, and are made in the United States in compliance with all US environmental, labor and consumer protection laws. And, through our partnership with Trees for the Future, JADE PLANTS A TREE FOR EVERY MAT SOLD – with over TWO MILLION trees planted so far.

Through our “Colour Cause” program, we donate $5 from each mat of a specific colour mat to a specific cause. For example, $5 from the sale of each Teal mat goes to ovarian cancer causes, $5 from each Flamingo Pink mat goes to breast cancer charities and $5 from each Saffron mat goes to autism causes. Through this program last year we raised over $50,000 for ovarian cancer, $25,000 for autism and $8,000 for breast cancer. These colours run for a limited time each year.
Our mats are available in 4 thicknesses:
Voyager – 1/16” (1.6 mm)
Travel – 1/8” (3.2mm)
Harmony Professional and Elite – 3/16” (4.8 mm)
Fusion – 5/16” (7.9 mm)
I have been looking for a foldable travel mat for a while and was hesitant to order a Jade mat online without being able to touch/smell/feel it in person. Luckily, I attended a Yoga conference where a very friendly and helpful Jade representative had lots of yoga mats to try! I was so impressed with the texture and the durability of the mat- the representative even showed me her personal Voyager mat that she folds up and takes on trips; it looked brand new! I purchased it in the Navy, but I wish there were more colors. The smell is rubbery but is not nearly as pungent as I had read or anticipated (I am sensitive to smells). It is more like I can smell it when my face is right next to it, but I don’t believe it is distracting or that other people in the room can smell it, and I definitely don’t get a headache from it. It is grippy out of the package and I was able to use it the day I bought it, in a pretty intense/sweaty class, with no slipping. I love that I can fold it up and throw it in my bag, suitcase, or keep it in the trunk of my car.
It is a bit thin, so I think it would do best either on another mat or on low-pile carpet (like in a hotel room) if you have sensitive joints. It is a good price point and is from a company that I am happy to support. Great mat and no slipping!
Let me start by saying- I love this mat.
This was the first mat I’ve purchased since beginning my journey into yoga. I’ve used the standard thickness mats in the past & I honestly feel more stable on the ultra thin Voyager- especially during standing poses. You’re able to really connect to the ground on this mat.The voyager is also very sticky and rarely bunches- even during a relatively fast flow class. The weight (or lack there of) and the travel readiness of this mat are also a big plus.
This past weekend, I forgot to grab my mat before heading to the studio & was forced to borrow a standard, generic mat (gross, I know). After slipping in down dog, a wobbly tree & an overall feeling of being unstable on the mat, I’ve gained a new appreciation for my Jade Voyager & will think twice before leaving the house without it!!
I do a lot of travel for work, and I have tried several yoga mat/grippy towel options. I need something that folds and fits into my suitcase without taking up too much room, and adding too much weight. This Jade travel mat is it!!! It folds up for packing and then unfolds without creases. It’s grippy and sticky, which is ideal for doing a floor practice on hotel carpets and patios.
As others mentioned, there is no padding so if I were taking a class in a studio, I would place this mat on top of a borrowed mat. Sometimes with movement it cinches up because of its lack of weight but it’s trivial in comparison to the many pluses that the mat has for travel purposes. It does the job and I love taking it with me around the world!
I absolutely love the Jade Voyager.
It feels light as a rolled up magazine.
Its thinness leads to a very tacky sticky effect.
However, there is effectively no padding,
And In a hot class, it will become saturated with sweat; bring a towel.
This mat is very lightweight and very sticky. My two biggest considerations.
As for padding, there is effectively none.
I have yet to test this in a ‘sweaty’ yoga environment, but I will report back.
Would I recommend this mat? Yes, I already have!
This is my first real yoga mat and it has made such an amazing difference in my practice. It is very, very thin so often I place my thicker Gaiam underneath for more cushion. I don’t slip and slide, it stays flat and it is so worth it! So happy I purchased this.
Sarah Highfield –
This mat is perfect for travel, it’s lightweight, sticky, durable, foldable & eco-friendly – what more could I ask for?
It’s truly wonderful to be able to pack my yoga mat inside my tote!
I take this yoga mat with me on holiday, as well as around London when I’m teaching.
