Mat Collective set out to redefine what a yoga company should be and that commitment hasn't wavered. As we mature so does the ethos and spirit of our company, but what will never change? That social and environmental integrity are at the forefront of our decision making. We believe in operating for the well being of our students and the betterment of our planet. Get yourself a recycled mat, come to a class, or find out how you can support our efforts in other ways.

MORE THAN YOGA MATS NOW.
In 2019 our friends Vivian and Dane offered to sell us Warrior Mats. After a serious amount trial and error, the help of the whole MC team we took over a long closed apparel manufacturer and got to work.
Welcome to Foreij: The next chapter for Vancouver's beloved local yoga mat line: Warrior Mats. We've expanded into a name that has space for a diverse collection of gear. Kept the great mats we're known for, but expanded our commitment to the environment and localised production.

ETHICAL BY DESIGN
While independently owned and operated these two companies are the first in what we hope to ultimately be a conglomerate of mid-size female owned and operated values driven companies that engage in industrial symbiosis, wholesale sourcing, and joint pursuit of large capital expenditures such as real estate and infrastructure investments.
We are capable. But we are self-made first-gen young entrepreneurs. Access to high level strategic powerhouses, legal and liability experts, production experts, marketing strategists, and above all access to regular high level financial advice is the greatest glass ceiling in both of these companies.
Are you a senior executive who wants to play startup?
Want to help but don't have the time? A lot of the time we just need to know if we are on the right track or missing a red flag.
Give us one hour a year.
-to scale we need advice-
SPREAD LOVE AS THICK
AS YOU WOULD NUTELLA
