I made these bags because I was disappointed by the aesthetic and quality of commercial yoga mat bags. Maybe you are too...
This unique bag is sewn (by yours truly) from imported wax print cotton from Eastern Africa. I hand-picked these fabrics while I was living in Uganda, working to promote women's and family health. I found them during a weekend trip to a village on the border of Sudan, where I was helping to facilitate a maternal health conference. Women will buy bolts of this fabric and bring them to local tailors to have them crafted into beautiful dresses and head wraps.
I chose to use this treasured fabric to create gorgeous, one-of-a-kind yoga mat bags. They're perfect for schlepping your mat in style and also make a lovely gift for your favorite yogi or yogini.
The bag has a natural cord drawstring closure. At the bottom of the bag is a small pocket, perfect for stashing your phone, keys, or any other treasure you pick up along the way.
The bag is unlined, and its dimensions are approximately 8 inches by 31 inches. The bag is perfectly suited to your standard yoga mat.
