    General Information

    More than just a gym mat: leather mat with coconut padding.

    Here comes a veritable gymnastics mat (for which this term is actually an inadmissible understatement, since it is also recommended as a mattress for sleeping, resting or meditation), which we - in the absence of noteworthy and usable alternatives - had made ourselves: from materials formerly proven for such purposes at Christoph Hack in Cologne.

    Material and details.

    The upper material is approx. 2 mm thick vegetable tanned cowhide - so-called gymnastics vachette leather, which is still used today for the production of high-quality gymnastics trunks or jumping horses. The whole topside is seamlessly made of one hide - for 2 sqm of surface about 5 sqm of raw leather are needed, which must weigh at least 50 kg before tanning; such leather is rare and can only be found in so-called 50 bulls. It is undyed and greased; in the course of time it takes on a dark patina, which makes it visually more and more beautiful.
    The inner padding is a latexed coir mat, a material with tremendous resilience even after years of use. It was the traditional cushioning material for a long time, until it was replaced by the much cheaper composite foam. An enclosing padding wadding provides a softer transition to the top material. The underside of the mat is made of a 3 mm thick woolen woven felt, which also serves as a warming base when the mat is used as a guest mattress.
    The corners are additionally reinforced, on the two narrow sides there are metal zippers (from the Swiss manufacturer Riri), two screwed leather handles each facilitate transport.
