We Are Committed to Complete Sustainability. There’s Nothing Complicated About It, we started Gurus to create sustainable products and make a difference.
Roots Cork Yoga Mat
Experience the second generation of Roots, our non-slip cork yoga mat. This is the only mat you’ll ever need. Roots is designed to be used on both sides and features a natural, waterproof and antimicrobial cork top, backed by an open-cell, dual-use natural rubber bottom partially sourced from our family rubber farms in Kerala, India.
Gurus are the modern twist of a vintage design. Our signature toe-post is based on the 5,000 year old Indian sandal that was actually worn by Mahatma Gandhi. You’ll always get noticed in Gurus and they’ll comfortably hold your foot in place without “scrunching” toes. Our plush natural rubber sole is thicker than most flip-flops and molds to your feet over time for added comfort. They almost feel like walking on a pillow!
Our Roots are Planted in Kerala, India
In this environment, sometimes called God’s Own Country because of its lush beauty, we found the perfect place to sustainably source the rubber for Gurus: our family farms. As children on trips to visit family in India, we learned about rubber production and even made rubber soccer balls to play with.
Buy a Pair & Plant a Tree.
Through our nonprofit partner, Trees for the future, we plant trees in the developing world, renourishing the environment and communities that create Gurus. We don’t just stop at planting trees, we make sure that local farmers receive training and education to maximize the benefits and lives of your trees.
