If you’re looking for unique, high-quality yoga mats designed by independent artists, then your hunt is over!
Since Society6’s yoga mats are getting increasingly popular, I thought I would write a post summarizing what 432 customers had to say [RES] about them (plus I bought 3 yoga mats for myself).
From the size and thickness to the quality of the material and print, everything you need to know about Society6’s yoga mats is right here!
I knew I would like the artwork on the yoga mat I ordered, and I was pleasantly surprised and pleased by the quality of the yoga mat itself. This was a gift for my yoga-teacher daughter, so I was really happy that it met her standards for utility and coolness! – Gina K. on Dec 15, 2020 [RES]
Society6’s Yoga Mats vs Product Quality
I really don’t have any complaints when it comes to the material of Society6’s yoga mats.
These yoga mats are lightweight, comfortable, durable, and they don’t slip like some of my other yoga mats. (Although you might want to use one of Society6’s yoga towels if you’re doing hot yoga, to reduce any slipping).
I really like this mat! It has a little extra cushion and after the first use is very slip-resistant!.. – Mary C. on Nov 14, 2020 [RES]
The size is perfect, the design is exactly as shown. There is a little slip if you are starting to sweat but other than that it’s great! – Elaina M. on Feb 25, 2020 [RES]
The mat is not only beautiful, but it has just the right amount of cushioning (not too much and not too little). It also is a little bit tacky, so my feet don’t slip like on other mats I’ve gotten. Highly recommend! – Sarah M. on Dec 29, 2020 [RES]
And I also enjoy the thickness of the mat, which is 1/4 inches thick. Usually, when you go to practice yoga, you’ll be told to have a mat that’s at least 1/8 inches thick. So, you’re good to practice yoga with Society6’s yoga mats! (And they’re still thin enough that they’re easy to roll up and carry around.)
Gorgeous design and the mat itself is quality! It sticks well to my hands and feet and has the right amount of cushion! – Samantha S. on Aug 19, 2020 [RES]
I love it so much. It’s the perfect thickness for my tender back and the colors are beautiful. Came with a carrying strap! – Mary D. on Feb 12, 2021 [RES]
I like the thickness of the mat for yoga-esp. if knees are involved. – susan f. on Mar 04, 2021 [RES]
I bought this mat as a birthday present for my sister, and we were both taken aback by the top quality of this mat—we didn’t expect it to be thick and cushioned, which is perfect for providing support during her workouts and stretches. Plus the design is so pretty! – Valerie V. on Feb 28, 2021 [RES]
Also, the standard yoga mat size is around 24 inches in width and 68 inches in length. Society6’s yoga mats are two inches longer (70 inches) than the standard size. However, if you’re tall (over 5’8″), you still might want to consider buying an extra-long yoga mat (Amazon).
It’s a lot bigger than I expected but that’s alright, but I absolutely adore it. I also received it very quickly. – Julia F. on Jan 15, 2021 [RES]
Looks great! I got this as a gift for my partner, and it’s also better quality than my own yoga mat (thicker and longer). Now I want one too! – Emma B. on Jul. 09, 2019 [RES]
I really like the texture of these mats as well. To get a better idea of what these yoga mats look like, check out the video below.
Beautiful and practical!The most beautiful mat I have found, also, very sticky, great grip for my down dog, perfect thickness and size, and truly unique! Best mat I’ve ever owned! – Emma B. on Jul. 09, 2019 [RES]
Arrive on time, was as displayed, and worked perfect – Ramona L. on Oct 05, 2020 [RES]
I just want to warn you that these yoga mats don’t come with a carrying bag. However, they do come with a 1.5-inch carrying strap.
If you prefer to carry your yoga mat in a bag (like I do), then you can check to see if Society6 has a matching tote bag.
Super soft and supportive. Carrying strap was an unexpected surprise. Adorable design – Cassidy W. on Mar 13, 2021 [RES]
Society6’s Yoga Mats vs Quality of Printed Art/Designs
Like most of the items I’ve ever bought from Society6 throughout the years, I found that the designs on the yoga mats I bought were sharp, and the colors were vibrant.
I did not know what to expect when I ordered this product but I do love the print on the yoga mat , it is just as vibrant as the photo and the yoga mat is thick and good quality, can’t wait to start using it for my workout from home ! – Emily P. on Jun 08, 2020 [RES]
Beautiful. I love it. Too pretty to roll up and put away, I want to put it on display – Andrea M. on Apr 09, 2021 [RES]
I received a beautiful, well-made and perfectly printed yoga mat… The imagery is so beautiful. It is a joy to have and use this mat. I know I’ll be ordering again with confidence. Fast delivery, great tracking, all-around terrific transaction. – Laura R. on Sept. 23, 2019 [RES]
These gorgeous mats give my private yoga room a touch of class and the right vibe & design for my style. They came exactly as pictured and work beautifully, thank you! – Pamela H. on Nov 12, 2020 [RES]
However, although rare, there are some instances where you might get a yoga mat with an image that isn’t as sharp as it should be. This is probably caused by an artist uploading an image that was too small or low-quality, which made the art/design on the yoga mat look blurry or pixelated.
If this problem happens to you, don’t panic!
Society6 is well known for making sure its customers are 100% happy with their shopping experience. Just let them know about any issue you have and I know, from experience, that they’ll make it right (hassle-free).
The first item arrived imperfect, I reached it to customer service and explained the issue and they sent me another one free of charge. No muss , no fuss. I was very impressed! – Paul D. on Dec 17, 2020 [RES]
I’ve purchased a number of beautiful pieces from society6 including tapestries, throw pillows, wall art, mugs, a phone case, and even a yoga mat! Almost every single one of them exceeded my expectations. I only had one item that didn’t come out as I expected and the company immediately addressed it to make sure I was happy. I highly recommend this company! Plus, every purchase supports an artist!! Win-win. – Lisa Cole on Jul 26, 2020 
Please Note: The printed design is only on one side of the yoga mats. The other side is left white.
Society6 Yoga Mats: Product Care & Washing Instructions
Many people will use yoga mat cleaners (Amazon) to make sure their yoga mats stay fresh and clean.
But if you’re like me and you want to protect the printed artwork/design for a very long time, I wouldn’t recommend using these sprays and wipes.
So what do I do to keep my yoga mats clean? Two things…
Protect Your Yoga Mat with Society6’s Yoga Towels
A super cool thing that Society6 came out with recently is their yoga towels (especially great for hot yoga or when you know you’re going to sweat a lot).
These towels are thin, super absorbent, fast-drying, and fit perfectly on top of your Society6 yoga mat.
Just lay the yoga towel on top of your yoga mat, and when you’re done with your yoga practice, just toss the towel in the washing machine and hang it to dry on a laundry rack (Amazon). It’s that easy!
Deep Cleaning Your Society6 Yoga Mat
For those times when my yoga mat needs a deep cleaning, here’s how I wash my yoga mat in a way that will protect the beautifully printed design and its vibrant colors for a very long time.
- I prefer to soak my yoga mats in the tub with room temperature water and a bit of mild detergent (Amazon).
- Don’t rub on the print too much. Focus on just dipping and swishing the yoga mat around in the water.
- Then, once I feel like the yoga mat is clean, I just let the yoga mat air dry on a laundry rack (Amazon). I’ll start by having it drip dry in my bathtub (I don’t ring the water out of the mat), and then I’ll move it out of the bathtub once it stops dripping.
- It might take a day or two for the yoga mat to dry completely, depending on the weather. I like to do this when the weather isn’t too humid or when I know the heat will be on in the house.
So cute and thick, and very easy to clean! – Thahabu G. on Aug 24, 2020 [RES]
So happy, great quality mat (similar to other commonly sold yoga mats), I have no issues with slipping (but I don’t do hot yoga), the pattern is so lovely and it’s really not hard to keep clean! I just brush off my feet before and brush the mat off after. I’m not cleaning it more than other mats and it’s still white! – Mackenzie B. on Jun 10, 2020 [RES]
Summary: My Opinion of Society6’s Yoga Mat + Star Ratings
So, is Society6’s yoga mat as good as online reviewers claim it is?
Yes! These yoga mats are not only good. They’re GREAT!
I love my new mat! The design came out very clear, crisp, and colorful PLUS it’s a very nice, thick mat. The thickness is so much more comfortable when I’m doing yoga and working out. It was a bit too “gripy” or “sticky” when it arrived, but I just let it lay out for a couple days and that went away – so don’t let that deter you. Great mat – go for it! – Katelyn L. on Aug 09, 2020 [RES]
My friends and I have ordered so many items from Society6 for 4 years, including their yoga mats.
Best purchase I’ve made in a long time! Thank you! – Meg A. on Jul 30, 2019 [RES]
My personal rating of Society6’s yoga mat is 4.5 out of 5 stars. I only took out the 0.5 stars because the mat can get a little slippery if you’re doing hot yoga (although a yoga towel helps tremendously).
The best part?
But, worse comes to worst, if you’re just not impressed with the size, fabric, or the print of your yoga mat, it’s easy (and free) to return a yoga mat to Society6 within 60 days.
This artwork printed on it is just amazing! Also important, the mat is very good quality, and my order was shipped promptly. I plan to do business here again soon! – Patricia K. on Oct 30, 2020 [RES]
I love unrolling the beautiful mat each time! So much better than my plain one and they were the same price from a “bargain” store. – Cara J. on Jun 01, 2020 [RES]
My kids saw my mat and commented how pretty the print is! Love supporting independent artists so will shop here more! – Jorene W. on Mar 19, 2021 [RES]
