Lazy Waves was born in 2016 with the sole purpose of creating beautiful products that highlight and give back to the world we love.
Having grown up on the coast, our lives have been shaped and influenced by the ocean and its colourful beauty. We have always been fascinated by the character and soul of the Australian coastline and the ocean's connection to everything around it. We wanted to capture the essence of this beauty and connectivity in our brand and our products.
The concept for Lazy Waves was first born after seeing the amount of people using poorly designed, unsustainable yoga mats at our local studio. This seemed like such a contrast to the people using them who were often beach lovers and conscious of using environmentally friendly products. The more we spoke to people about their desires, we realised a clear need for beautifully designed yoga mats that are sustainably produced. This was our chance to combine two of our passions (yoga and the ocean) into a product that could be adored by yogies around the world, without the impact on the environment.
After an extensive vetting process of production partners that didn't meet our standards, we found incredible partners that create our products using only sustainable and recycled materials. We design our products from the ground up with rigorous sample testing within our community to ensure our products don’t just look beautiful but behave beautifully too. As yoga-lovers, we know what works best and are obsessed with improving performance while maximising aesthetic and minimising our footprint. At Lazy Waves, we look at sustainability throughout the supply chain, so have also teamed up with an impact partner 'One Tree Planted', to ensure we plant a tree for every yoga mat sold. Through the power of community we aim to give our customers and us a platform to create lasting positive change through the small actions we take.
From our humble beginnings, we are proud of what Lazy Waves has become and we’re excited about where we’re going. We love seeing our products out and about in yoga studios, gyms, homes or wherever people find them useful. We hope our products give you the inspiration you need and serve as a constant reminder of our place in the stunning natural world.
Stay tuned and stay lazy!
