What is vegan leather?

Our vegan leather fabric is custom manufactured for our brand and contains zero animal materials.

The fabric composition is nylon or polyester & cotton (depending on our single sided and double sided fabric) and with a thin layer of non-toxic polyurethane (PU).

This top layer of PU gives the fabric the beautiful texture and buttery soft feeling of genuine leather however it is water impermeable & stain resistant. It really is that amazing!

As a new brand we spent a lot of time researching the different types of vegan leather fabric available and in the end, we decided to create our own to ensure the quality was top notch and to be able to curate our own custom colours.


Why do you call it vegan leather?

The term vegan leather is commonly used for this type of fabric and is factual that it contains zero animal products or by-products.

Some so called "vegan leather" fabrics do contain a small percentage of genuine leather particles, where as ours does not.


Is your vegan leather safe for children?

Absolutely. Our vegan leather is custom made for our brand so we have control over the standards produced. It is manufactured to strict international safety standards for children's products (EN-71) and then independently tested to ensure it contains no lead, arsenic, chromium and a long list of other harmful heavy metals and toxic substances.


How can I smooth out the crease lines on my mat?

By folding your mat it naturally develops crease lines. Through using your mat these crease lines will disappear however to expedite this we recommend that you hang your mat overnight (using the hang strap) as weight helps a lot.

Further to this you can place your mat in direct sunlight for an hour or so. To avoid recurrence of crease lines, hang your mat to store rather than fold.
