This has been my primary yoga mat for home practice for over three years. It is very durable and light weight, and I love the natural look. The fibrous surface is a relaxing change from the stickier yoga mats. It feels great on my feet and legs in child's pose, like they are getting extra stimulation from the soft texture. Also, there's no slipping in downward dog! This mat provides excellent grip. I usually leave it open on the floor, ready for practice, but it rolls up easily and becomes compact for storing in the closet or car. To clean, I've washed in the washing machine three times. Still is in perfect condition.
