The cork surface feels nice, and sticks well when damp - luckily I'm generally pretty sweaty, but it would be slippery for someone less damp than myself. It's also a very thin material, which means it shifts and folds up sometimes when moving between poses. I can't say I'd recommend it to a friend, but I'm not disappointed enough to send it back.
I love my cork mat. Makes me love my yoga practice even more. So easy to maintain.
I'm not even sure this thing has lasted 30 full hours. I got it about a month ago. It looks great. It doesn't smell. But, the cork is coming up off of it like crazy. Would not recommend this for anyone who practices hot yoga daily.
Love this yoga mat.
The cork part of the mat bubbles and started to crumble off within a few months
