Meet Tamara Kaplan. The owner and creator of Bae Kiiara. Eco chic yoga mats.
Bae Kiiara was started by a husband and wife team in the San Francisco bay area. They grew up playing soccer and water polo. After years of knee and shoulder injuries, they developed a love for yoga, pilates, barre and circuit training.
Transforming fitness into a lifestyle routine isn't easy, and they quickly realized that their motivation depended on the reliability and quality of their yoga mats. But, they thought, why isn't there a high quality yoga mat that also looks good? They realized how important the reliability and quality of their yoga mat was in motivating their fitness lifestyle. They spend so much time on it, they wanted it to be cushiony, anti-slip, eco-friendly, and non-toxic.
There are a few high-quallilty yoga mats on the market that meet all these criteria, but they couldn't find any that actually looked good!
So they sought to design a yoga mat that expresses the beauty inherent in these routines - balance, strength, flexibility and power - while also empowering us all to practice every day.
Bae Kiiara mats are made of eco-friendly materials, healthy for both you and the planet.
Their designs not only express balance, strength, flexibility and power, but tranquility, mindfulness and compassion. Practicing on these mats is a transformation.
They launched their company this past Summer and are overwhelmed by the fandom their mats have created on Instagram and in local yoga studios.
