FAQ

Where does the name hejhej-mats come from?

Hej hej means hello in Swedish. Since we had the idea for our sustainable yoga mats in Sweden and the product development started there, we wanted to express our close connection to Sweden in our brand name. By saying “hej hej” we want to welcome the leftovers from the production into their new product life.

How long/wide/thick is a hejhej-mat?

So far there is one standard size: 186 cm long, 65 cm wide and 0.5 cm thick. A hejhej-mat weighs approximately 2 kg. With this measure we have found good the golden middle: the mat is very comfortable and yet not too heavy to carry with you in everyday life. Further mat variations are planned for the future, e.g. a particularly thin travel mat and an extra-large and thick comfort mat.

The mat is made from recycled materials, are these harmless to my health and do I actually do yoga on old yogurt cups?

Our yoga mats are made from offcuts that arise in the foaming industry. This type of waste is called pre-consumer waste. This means, the materials have never been in touch with any consumer so far and are just leftovers from the production. Therefore, the quality of these recycled materials is still perfect. The recycled foam also has certificates such as REACH. In order to avoid any doubts and to be really completely safe, we deliberately decided to use a virgin material as the surface. This material is medically compliant and is otherwise used for hospital products. Our yoga mats are therefore completely harmless to health.

Can I test a hejhej-mat somewhere live?

You can buy your hejhej-mat offline in some places. Here you can find our offline retailers. You can test our hejhej-mats at one of our partner studios. If you would like to work with us or know a great partner near you, please send us an email.

If you order a hejhej-mat, you cannot test it for hygienic reasons. You can roll out the mat, have a closer look at it and feel the material and surface. For hygienic reasons it is not possible to practice yoga on it. If the mat is to be sent back, it must be in its original condition, unused and in the original box.

How is the surface of the mat?

The surface is structured. This gives you extra grip and slip-resistance, both on the floor and on your hands and feet. We deliberately chose a closed surface structure for hejhej-mats, as this prevents liquids (sweat) from penetrating the mat. This way, your mat stays hygienic and its lifespan is extended.

Does the mat have a good grip?

Slip-resistance was one of the most important criteria during our product development. Together with yoga teachers, we have optimized and improved a lot. The final model was also tested by various teachers and everyone was enthusiastic about it. The feedback we have received from customers so far is also extremely good. Due to the closed surface (see previous point), we recommend using a yoga towel for extremely sweaty yoga sessions.

Yes! Recently we have launched the hejhej-bag, the first closed-loop yoga mat bag. Stay tuned, we will inform you as soon as we launch new closed-loop yoga innovations.

Can I support you somehow or are you looking for employees?

We are open to any suggestions. Feel free to write us an email.

What can I do with my old yoga mat that is not a hejhej-mat?

Unfortunately, we cannot yet recycle old yoga mats from other manufacturers. Before you buy a new product, always consider whether your current product is still working. The most sustainable thing you can do is to use your products for as long as possible. However, it is always possible to give your old yoga mats a purpose as soon as they no longer meet your requirements. We made very good experiences donating mats to homeless shelters or children’s initiatives.
