I bought two because the design is just incredible. It also isn't your everyday run-of-the-mill yoga mat. It's longer than I expected (which isn't a bad thing) and the cork makes it easy on your knees. The amount of grip on the mat is good too as long as you're not doing a super complex movement. It can be used effortlessly for either meditation or yoga. It rolls out nicley and folds up easily once you're finished with it. Can't wait to keep using it during yoga sessions.
