Frequently Asked Questions
Do the Yogitoes Towels have a top and a bottom side?
The Yogitoes Towel does indeed have a designated top and bottom. The patented Skidless technology grips to your mat and prevents slipping no matter how much you move or sweat. The smooth side without the silicone nubs is meant to provide a luxurious feeling on your hands and feet.
What are Yogitoes Towels made of?
The Yogitoes Towel is made of a recycled and proprietary microfiber material. A woven texture on both sides, the microfiber fabric is comprised of 10% Nylon, 50% Recycled Polyester, 40% Virgin Polyester Microfiber and the skidless dots are 100% silicone.
How do you care for your Yogitoes Towel?
They recommend machine washing with cold water and like colors, tumble dry low or hang dry and do not bleach. They do not recommend using dryer sheets, fabric softeners or detergents with fabric softener, as they will make the surface of your yogitoes slick.
They use dyes that are heavy metal/azo/lead free and much better for the planet, so deeper colors may require multiple, separate washings to remove excess dye. Some dye loss may continue beyond the initial separate washings, so use caution when practicing on light colored mats or in light colored clothing. Be sure to avoid rolling up a damp yogitoes with your mat. As a note, it is possible for shrinking to occur if washed in warm water and/or dried in heat.
The Manduka Story
Sometimes it’s the bumps in the road that end up defining your journey. This is the story of Manduka, a company founded on the simple idea that a better yoga mat could make a world of difference.
In 1997, Peter Sterios, an architect turned yogi, discovered a simple, elegantly designed black mat whose combination of firm grip and complete support revolutionized his yoga practice. In honor of the yoga masters who inspired him, he sought to share this amazing product with others.
Peter had always been the beneficiary of great generosity from other yoga teachers. To repay that debt, he sent mats as gifts to many of the teachers he admired including Erich Schiffmann, Rod Stryker, Angela Farmer, Victor Van Kooten, Rodney Yee, and Shiva Rea. The teachers who inspired Peter were his first customers. And in the great yoga tradition, they shared their mats with their students, and a true yoga company was born. Peter chose the name Manduka in homage to his teacher and mentor, Shandor Remete, whose core practice and teaching always included the ancient Hatha Yoga Pradipika pose, Mandukasana or frog. The first time Peter heard and repeated the name of the pose he experienced a sense of childlike joy and delight as the sound rolled off his tongue. The word and the pose were mirror images, simultaneously playful and profound. The joy of Manduka is now spoken in so many countries, all over the world.
The quality and performance of Manduka mats and yoga accessories are still unmatched in the marketplace. They are still crafted using simple, enduring, natural, and whenever possible, renewable materials and a fine attention to detail.

From the road less traveled, something great and meaningful has arrived.
At Manduka they believe it’s possible to honor your practice and the Earth. That’s why they take the hard road to find sustainable product solutions. Together they celebrate the deep and profound bond yoga shares with the world. Whether it’s zero waste and emissions free manufacturing, the sourcing of recycled materials, or creating the first ever 100% recyclable mat, you can be sure that your Manduka yoga gear will not only keep your practice thoughtfully grounded, but do so while leaving a very small footprint. Each detail is a conscious decision. Practice on.
