I’m no yogi. In fact I don’t necessarily even practice yoga or even know much about it. However, when it comes to groovy accessories, especially bags – I’m pretty hot on the fashion scene!
While adventuring in Bali, I was scoping out the local market when a distinctly unique pattern caught my eye. Though it was a super-cute bag, it was super-oddly shaped.
I had no idea what it was for, so feeling slightly on the stupid side, I inquired within. I felt even more stupid when the reply I received was simply:
“Yoga mat bag, want to buy?”
Rather than hanging my head down and sulking away in embarrassment, I simply stood there, trying to figure out what in the world I could use a yoga mat bag for. Because I certainly don’t own a mat to put inside of it.
I was seriously determined to find an excuse to buy it.
I considered how it would make a great fashion piece, coming up with a number of better and worse ideas. A beach bag, a travel bag, a tent bag, a laundry bag….wouldn’t a case of beer fit perfectly? Honestly, the possibilities were endless. And then it hit me.
I want to buy a yoga mat bag even though I don’t practice yoga.
To be honest, I even considered giving yoga one more go, for the 100th time.
Fashion Forward Fair Trade Yoga--It’s the way we roll
Basically, what I am trying to demonstrate, is that while the bags are extremely useful for yoga.. or tents - some of the designs out there are absolutely incredibly unique. And here’s the way to get bonus points…..When you’re out & about searching for the perfect yoga mat bag to suit your unique personality, remember that you can vote with your dollars and make a difference. Yes, it’s true. Fair Trade yoga mat bags are plentiful. And I’ll be the first to admit that I got carried away on a google search for the hippest bag (just in case), so naturally, I’m now an expert in just how hot fair trade is in the yoga mat bag scene. It’s easy to do your part and take advantage of connecting these factors:
Fashion, Fair Trade & Yoga
You can be a cool cat with fashion
You can be a cool cat with yoga
AND you can be a cool cat with Fair Trade.
Did Some Cool Cat Say Accessorize?
I sure did. Okay, I didn’t but I was thinking it, quite naturally! Who wouldn’t want to accessorize their new yoga mat bag with a rainbow of pom poms and beads? Zipper pulls (& keychains) are just one more way to personalize your already truly groovy and unique yoga mat bag. So many colors and sizes to choose from here, and yes! they’re fair trade, too!
While I may never be a yogi, I’m fair-trade fit, and an all-star fashion guru! Shop cool and conscious, my friends!

As if the “Who am I “ question wasn’t enough, I sometimes, oftentimes am compelled to truly consider what Global Groove Life is.
