Resourcefully crafted, inspired by yoga.

Have you noticed how many people carry their yoga mat rolled up and tucked under their arm? How most people just deal with the annoyance of an unfurling mat in transit and/or in storage? Working in a yoga studio in Northeast Ohio, Kristin Wade and Stacy Edelstein recognized this and saw an opportunity to make lives a little easier. In 2016, the idea of the Mat Keeper was born

The Mat Keeper features a bungee and toggle quiet design with several textile choices to match your style. The fashion forward look personalizes your mat and makes it uniquely identifiable at the gym or yoga studio. It is the perfect gift idea for the yogi and exercise enthusiast on-the-go.

No more fights with yoga mat bags and shoulder straps. No more loud ripping sounds that kill the zen vibe from a hook and loop option. The flexibility of the bungee design makes this a one-size fits all option for exercise mats of any thickness or length and its durability is unmatched by anything else out there.

And...What’s Up With that Hedgehog?

OK, who doesn’t love an adorable little hedgehog all curled up, bound and secure? The truth is, Stacy has had pet hedgehogs for a while. They began bringing Hedgie on the road to fitness conventions, yoga conferences, and everything in between. He quickly stole the show and became the unofficial mascot. In 2019, they made it official and Hedgie has made his way from the hearts of many all the way to the official product name; The Hedgie Mat Keeper.
