Sale Price: $137.00

When my son was in high school, a boy in his class suggested that Jack kill himself because he’s gay. This kid posted on Jack’s Facebook page something like, “you should kill yourself because your a blank-blank-blankety-blank.” Jack’s response was one simple correction: *you’re.

Jack has always been supported and loved for being exactly who he is. Not all LGBTQ youth have safety and security in their physical environment, support and love from their family, or acceptance from their peers. Suicide is the second leading cause of death among young people ages 10–24.

PRIDE in You represents three things: the wholeness and divinity of each individual exactly as they are, the unity that envelopes us all when we accept each other exactly as we are, and the harmony that is brought to each life when we live with gratitude for each other exactly as we are.

A portion of the proceeds from each sale of PRIDE in You will go directly to The Trevor Project. The goal of the Trevor Project is to end suicide among gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning young people under 25.

I have so much PRIDE in You, Jack.

(And in your sister, Hannah, for her compassionate and beautiful design.)

Great yoga mats start with great materials, and Big Raven Yoga mats are the highest quality yoga mats in the world. We’ve arrived at what we believe to be the ideal yoga mat. It’s a well-balanced synthesis of size, weight and cushion made from premium, eco-friendly materials. Our brushed microfiber suede top is a proprietary recycled polyester to help lessen our impact on the environment. By using recycled (and recyclable) materials, we’re reducing our use of energy, water, and greenhouse gases. In addition, our base is made from biodegradable, recyclable, 100% natural tree rubber which provides both excellent cushion and great traction for wet floors. Our yoga mats are the perfect blend of art and engineering and function as both your yoga towel and your yoga mat.

All of our yoga mats are 72" × 24" x 3/16" (183cm × 61cm x 4.5mm). We only make one yoga mat. Many designs, but only one yoga mat, because it’s the best we know how to make.

Our yoga mats are nearly indestructible. No matter what you do to them they’ll continue to look and perform like new for years to come. (We know this from experience. We WANT to treat our yoga mats the way they deserve to be treated, but we never actually do.) Simply hose it down or machine wash on cold and hang to dry for a long, colorful life. For maximum grip, lightly spray with water before beginning your practice. The more you sweat, the more you’ll grip, and the more stable and balanced you’ll feel.

Our microfiber suede yoga mat surface provides more grip the wetter it gets, making it the perfect companion for sweatier practices and/or more intensive exercise regimes — you’ll never need a towel over your yoga mat again! It’s thick enough to keep your knees happy but light enough to take with you on the go. Prefer a dry practice? Simply mist the surface of this mat with a spray bottle to activate the grip.

All of our unique artwork is created in-house by women with a feminist point of view. We don’t purchase designs from stock photo warehouses. You can be sure that every design is unique to us. And you can be sure you’ll have an eye-catching mat like no other!
