Our idea is that you buy because you need it and knowing that it will last you for a long time. It’s also a priority for us that the manufacture process it’s fair with the people working on their production and with the environment where these rugs are produced in India. This rug will become your little sanctuary; A comfortable place where you can spend hours of practice with the peace of mind that a fair, Eco-friendly and sustainable product will bring to you. 🙂
