Random internet wandering, people inquiring about if I’ve heard of so and so product… and mostly, random internet wandering has led me to a new list of Filipino-made products for Filipino yogis, and yogis all over the world
Read on 🙂
- Yoga pants from Radioactive Mushrooms in the Forest
Gotta love local art on yoga pants.
What’s more, the first design, Summer Tapestry, features photographs and impressions of Bali – a yoga haven for most of us who have been blessed enough to go.
These yoga pants are for pre-order so if you’re interested, get on their list! One pair is P2500 and it’s available from XS to XL.
FOR YOUR PRACTICE
- Inabel Yoga Towel from Aquanimous
Inabel is actually handwoven cloth from Ilocos — definitely Filipino made ❤
Weaving this kind of cloth has been in Filipino tradition, particularly in Ilocos, since the 1500s. Its imbued with history and Filipino sensibility and I’m so happy that someone’s thought to bring that into the yoga practice. The more we support these makers, the longer the art of weaving the Inabel lasts – something to think about whenever you’d like to give a yogi a gift 🙂
I’m actually thinking of buying a yoga blanket to add to my materials for my special needs classes and will definitely think of buying this as a blanket.
These are worth P1200 and can be ordered through Aquanimous‘ site and, for your information, it fits a standard sized Manduka mat and has sufficient group, according to the site 🙂
- Pillows from Yakang Yaka
Though not exactly made for yoga, these pillows look firm enough to be used as bolsters/support in restorative poses, or seats for meditation.
Local art seems to be a theme for this post 🙂
The weaves are handmade in a sustainable way, a manifestation of the hard work and cultural traditions of the Yakan village from Mindanao.
For more info on availability and prices, email them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Yoga mat bag from Yakang Yaka
I own a Yakang Yaka Yoga bag and I didn’t even know it!
I have the grayish weave. Yay for accidentally supporting local weavers and entrepreneurs.
Again, for more info on availability and prices, email them at email@example.com.
- Mat cleaner by Dharma
My first mat cleaner, given as a gift.
It worked beautifully for me and I liked that it didn’t have a very strong fragrance. The only downside is, since it comes in 100ml, it’s easy to finish 🙂
A bit hard to find online but this can be found in All Things Yoga Boutique and I’ve seen it often at different branches of ECHOstore.
That’s my list for the day 🙂
