We Care About Your Health & Our Environment!
Maji Sports, based in Los Angeles, CA, was founded by Giovanni Villa, a long-time fitness enthusiast, chef, personal trainer and certified yoga instructor; and Bemnet Kibreab, a former Wall Street professional and avid yoga practitioner.
Watching people struggle with support & balance in their yoga class, they wanted to make sure people get proper cushioning and support during their yoga sessions. This drove Giovanni & Bemnet to design a yoga & exercise mat with targeted contours with extra cushioning and support for your knees and wrists. This cutting edge mat would become known as the Happy Knees mat. When we released the first version of the mat back in 2012 it weighted 7lbs. We decided to pull the mat from the market and go back to the drawing board. After nearly eight years of development, we will finally be releasing the mat in Q4 of 2020.
At Maji Sports, we all work together with the aim of helping as many people reach their fitness and wellness goals. Our aim is to lead an exclusive lifestyle brand that makes mental health & physical fitness accessible to all while keeping quality and sustainability in check.
We are committed to to having a zero carbon footprint with all the products that we manufacture and sell around the world. This is the reason why we have teamed up with EcoCart. For every product you buy a percentage of your purchase is given back to EcoCart for the purpose of funding Certified Carbon Offset Projects around the globe. The way it works is that each purchase that's made has its CO2 impact calculated and an amount is given to fund various Certified Carbon Offset Projects. This makes it so that your purchase has a zero carbon impact on the planet.
Maji (pronounced “MAA-g”), is derived from the Swahili language (which is spoken in parts of Africa), meaning ‘Water’ and is meant to pay homage to people living in areas with scarcity of water throughout the world, especially to the women working hard every single day to collect and carry water. By providing potable water to these places, we will make it possible for young ladies to get an education, which in turn will help many escape the cycle of poverty. It is a known fact that when women are educated, the poverty rate drops by over 70% in these families. We believe in protecting & respecting our resources and our planet Earth for the future generations to live in
We Commit to Make You Eco-Fit!
We care about our Environment to an extent that almost all our products available are eco-friendly and sustainable. We believe in staying natural and yet compact so health & wellness always stays a part of nature and all of us lead a harm-free lifestyle. Our Jute Eco Premium Yoga & Exercise mat, made of 100% Jute fiber is anti-microbial making it “The Perfect Choice” for an eco-friendly extra sweaty workout. We also manufacture yoga meditation zafus and bolsters that are made by hand. They are made of 100% raw organic cotton. Our zafus and bolsters are made in India by a family that has been making these items for generations. We also make it a point to only manufacture our bolsters with factories that pay an honest wage to their employees with the aim to help their workers escape the cycle of poverty.
