It may seem a bit counterintuitive to get a highly materialistic yoga mat on your search for inner peace, but if you’ve got an extra five or six figures lying around, Chakracarma would like to help you lighten that load. The exquisite mats are crafted of handmade vegetable-tanned leather. Using a skin as a yoga mat might seem weird at first but the practice actually dates back to ancient India. The yogis used the skins of dead animals, which they had not killed, because they believed it helped sustain the energy they gained through meditation. A Chakracarma Mat starts at around $15,000. Or you can opt to add a 3.5-carat ruby, 3-carat amber, 3-carat carnelian, 2.5-carat sapphire, 2-carat opal, 1-carat emerald and/or a 0.70-carat diamond. The most decorated design can be yours for a chakra-shocking $100,000; Chakracarma.com.
