Our Mexican Yoga Blankets are hand woven and are made in different villages in Mexico. Each yoga blanket is unique and may vary slightly in pattern and color. The pictures represent the main color theme of each blanket, sometimes the blankets are darker and sometimes lighter than the actual picture but do provide a good representation of the blanket color. These are authentic handmade Mexican blankets so the colors and patterns change often.
Our Classic Mexican Yoga Blankets are very popular and a great value. Mexican blankets are used frequently in Iyengar and restorative yoga practices. They can be used folded under sitting or kneeling poses to cushion bones and joints, underneath you in repose positions to insulate from cold flooring, rolled or folded to provide support and stretch in poses, or just as a cover to warm you in Savasana. Mexican Blankets are not intended to be used as a yoga mat replacement due to the fact that they are not tightly woven like a cotton yoga rug, but are to be used in a large variety of ways as a prop during practice.
These blankets are also great for use at the beach, for your pets to lie on at home or in the car, a picnic or to cover an outdoor table and of course for providing warmth as a blanket.
Each Yoga Blanket is unique. Since these Yoga Blankets are hand woven in different villages in Mexico, there will be variations in patterns and colors. See two of the pictures above for examples of these variations. Variations occur in striping or pattern, in shades of color, and in the color of the tassels.
