Yoga Mats by Jill Malek For YogaMatic

Crave Worthy: Jill Malek Yoga Mats

Sometimes I want to feel pretty when I'm sweating it out at my Pilates mat class. Since I usually keep my workout clothes pretty basic, I'm always on the lookout for a unique bag or mat. I was excited to find out that Brooklyn-based designer Jill Malek teamed up with the eco-friendly company YogaMatic for a new line of mats. Like all YogaMatic mats, the Jill Malek series is made from sustainable, recycled rubber that is 100 percent biodegradable, and a percentage of the price ($85) goes to Global Green, a nonprofit focused on preventing climate change.

This is the first time YogaMatic has teamed with an independent designer, and it's easy to see why they picked Malek. The designs are based from Malek's Frequencies wallpaper collection — nature-inspired designs with repetitive patterns. I know it sounds silly, but the designs get me excited about taking a yoga or Pilates class.

The mats measure 72-by-24 inches with a thickness of 1/4-inch and also come with a tote bag.

While they are gorgeous, I just find them too distracting for class - maybe it's the strict ballet training in me, but I think that mats in classes should stick to a solid color ...

So super cute, but definitely pricey, this would make a nice gift.

I think they are beautiful. I'm in the market for a mat - I wonder how these would hold up in an Ashtanga class or against the Manduka mats? $85 isn't a bad price for a quality mat that will last years. My $30 mats from Target barely last a few months before they start falling apart.

They are beautiful, but I can't bring myself to pay that much $ for a yoga mat.

These mats ROCK! I have one myself and they are def. worth the price. The image is really cool and stays on even with my rigorous practice! I'm going to give them as gifts this season for sure. WYG

Those are really cool! But way too much for a yoga mat.
