good looking and passes the stanky test

I really liked this mat. unlike the dark blue wisdom mat, it''s thick, has a neutral smell, and provides good traction for those standing poses. my only complaint is that the design is so pale it''s almost invisible. unlike the photo, the flower is not very bright, so I don''t know if it will survive multiple washings. once again, for the price, this mat should have a clear, high-contrast design that holds up when washed. time will tell as to how well both the design, as well as the mat itself, survives. otherwise, I would recommend it, but with the above listed caveats.
Not a quick drying mat -

I bought this mat for Bikram to have one mat however with the towel side up, it''s too slippery. I put my Yogitoes on the towel side and that was a bit slippery too. So I''ve been using it towel side down with my Yogitoes on top that is ''OK and provides good traction. Also, I like to wash my mat between classes too but when I wash this one in the washing machine and hang it up - it''s not always dry the next day and I have to revert back to an old mat. Disappointing really.

Love this mat! I do vinyasa yoga often but not on a daily basis. This mat is perfect! Not too sticky but sticky enough I keep poses without slipping. Worth the investment.
