I purchased the mat for my son. He is currently living in a community engaged in Zen study and practice, with primary emphasis on sitting meditation.
He is very happy with this mat, not only the quality, but he commented on the how much he liked design.
I was so surprised when it arrived in 2 days and the week of Christmas! I planned to give him a picture of it because I was sure it wouldn't arrive in time.
I highly recommend this store and plan to shop here from now on.
Thank you Gaiam!

I am very happy with my Zen Garden Print Mat. The colors and design were as expected, and the tackyness is perfect (I am a beginner), I don't slip or slide. I was expecting it to be thicker, but the thickness seems to be enough for me right now. And I have to say that the design gives me a type of joy, it just makes me happy everytime I unroll it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Markem Love it, and Hate it!
The quality is great, and it was in my hands in 3 days! ! !
I like the design, but the pictures colour online is almost an orange (my favourite color), but when I got it, it's more of a dark burgundy red. You almost cant see the 'great' design on the matt, which some may love. It's very muted and understated!
Also, I should also have thought about the matt color more. The picture looks kinda like a nice grey. . .and orange on grey would have looked great together. However, the matt color. . . well, you know when you are painting with water colors and you have that water glass that you clean your brush in for a while . . . well that's the color of the matt. Grey-blue-ish with a charcoal tinge!

I couldn't love this mat more! It's high quality at a very reasonable price and the design is SO cute! The perfect balance of a simple, "grown up" design an color scheme with a little bit of pizazz.

Rated 4 out of 5 by anyajo nice print, bit slick
Love the print. Kinda slippery. For poses like downward dog, for instance, I have to grab around the sides of the mat for a good grip. It was a little thinner than I expected but the thickness was listed so that was my fault. Overall, I like it and will keep it, and use it everyday!
