SHIDE A WORDS travel mats/yoga towels are high quality, durable and unique. The travel mat/yoga towel measures 72" x 24" (standard full size) and is ultra thin. It folds down to only 9" x 5" x 2”. You no longer need to lug around a big heavy yoga mat to events or when traveling. Fold it up and carry it with you wherever you go. It can be used over a regular yoga mat or directly on hardwood, carpet, grass or on the beach. It is great for hot yoga. SHIDE A WORDS is an original form of art, which captivates the eye. Its vibrant colors, unique shapes and hidden words are interwoven into the design. The words that are hidden in this particular design are “LIGHT, “LIFE", “ENERGY” (Sun), “SERENITY”, “PEACE” and “CALM" (Moon). The bottom is made of biodegradable natural tree rubber that provides superior traction regardless of if it is used over a regular yoga mat or on its own. The top layer is an ultra-absorbent microfiber and is printed with water-based ink. All of the materials are responsibly sourced and manufactured in a sweatshop-free facility. **Please note: The travel mat/yoga towel just needs to be line dried after hot yoga or when wet. It can be machine washed but is not needed very often. When washed, wash by itself with cold water, no fabric softener, on gentle cycle, and line dried, not in direct sun.
