What makes Love My Mat sustainable?
Our goal has always been to turn other people's waste into useful products. We started making yoga mat bags from curtains and sheets, buying as little new materials as possible. We continue to use thrifted or left over fabrics to help reduce the world's textile waste issues. We make everything locally to avoid overseas shipping. We use little to no packaging and re-use everything we can. All of our filling materials are 100% natural, biodegradable and sourced as locally as possible.
The nature of our products.
Our stock changes often as we work with smaller quantities of fabrics. This means, we may not have the product and fabric you selected. We do our best to keep our website updated, but please be patient with us. We'll always give you options to choose something else or get a refund.
What kind of fabrics do you use?
We use unwanted textiles that come from thrift shops and liquidators. Because of this we aren't always sure of the fabric content. If we do know, we try to list it in the product description.
Where are the products made?
All of our products are made by women in Hamilton, Ontario in our shop. We outsource as little as possible and are a Certified Living Wage Employer. Please note, we do sell products made by other companies which might not always be made locally.
Where do you get your fabrics?
Most of our fabrics are found at local thrift shops. We search for beautiful colours and patterns with gently used curtains, tablecloths, shower curtains, garments, duvet covers and anything else that catches our eye. We accept fabric donations that are in good shape.
We also purchase Dead Stock fabrics, end lots, discontinued or discounted fabrics from local suppliers to offer a larger selection and more current designs on our yoga and meditation accessories.
Do you pre-wash the fabrics?
Yes and no. If we thrift a fabric, we pre-wash it in biodegradable, phosphate-free detergent (Tru Earth Strips because they're the best!) then put it in the dryer to make sure our products won't shrink. This makes many of our products safe to machine wash & dry. Especially our Yoga Straps, Yoga Prop Bags, Buckwheat Hull & Eye Pillow Cases plus many more yoga and home goods we produce.
But we don't pre-wash headstock fabrics. Most bolster covers and meditation cushion covers should be machine washed in cold and hung to dry.
I don't see a fabric I love. How often do you add new designs?
We're always shopping for great fabrics and sewing them together which means we make new products every week. We aim to release a new collection of yoga & meditation accessories every other week. Sometimes it happens more often and sometimes we miss a week - so be sure to check back often! or sign up for our newsletter to be the first to hear about new fabrics and products.
Do you make custom orders?
Yes we can and we love doing custom work! Just send us and email with the details to email@example.com and we'll send you a quote.
Do you guarantee your products?
Yes, all of our yoga and meditation products are 100% guaranteed. If you're not satisfied with your design or something has malfunctioned, we'll take care of it. If we can't fix it, we'll replace it.
And if you're still not completely satisfied, we'll refund the total amount you originally paid us for the product, minus any shipping charges. Just be sure to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the details. Refunds will be issued by the same payment method used and can take up to 30 days to show on your records.
What is your return policy?
We gladly accept returns in most cases. Check our full refund policy for all the details. Be sure to email us at email@example.com with the details and one of our friendly yogis will assess your case and respond shortly. Refunds will be issued by the same payment method used and can take up to 30 days to process. Shipping charges are non-refundable.
