the product

We tested different compositions of our recycled foam until we have found the perfect combination which will give you the highest level of comfort and stability during your practice. The top layer of our yoga mat is closed-celled approved in the medical industry. This way we guarantee you a hygienic yoga practice. As we are passionate about yoga ourselves, we know that slip resistance, a neutral smell and a good cushioning make the perfect yoga mat. 

the process

We developed our prototypes together with the Josephs - an open innovation lab of the Fraunhofer Institute. The whole production process takes place in Germany. We work together with family owned partner factories which place value on good relationships with their employees. The factories hold various ISO certificates and the foam we use is certified with REACH.

Our hejhej-mats and their individual design were nominated for the german federal award ecodesign 2018.


we are Anna and Sophie, the two co-founders of hejhej-mats.

We have completed our Master Degree in Sustainability Management in Sweden and have a passion for yoga. Our vision is to reduce the amount of waste on the planet and promote a more responsible consumption.

We like resources that flow in endless circles and are motivated to make this planet a livable place for future generations.

Join us on our journey towards closing the loop!
