Notice Regarding CafePress Customized Yoga Mats

May 4, 2011 at 5:30pm

It was recently brought to Gaiam's attention that Gaiam yoga mats printed with certain distasteful or offensive images and statements have been advertised and offered for sale on the CafePress website, and may also be publicized on other websites. Please understand that Gaiam has not authorized and does not endorse these or any other images or statements which appear on the CafePress website.  We have notified CafePress to remove all Gaiam products from this website immediately.


Until recently, Gaiam sold blank yoga mats to CafePress for customization and resale.  Unfortunately, their customization engine has recently been used by certain users to promote images and statements that we (and many of our customers and friends) find distasteful and offensive. We want all of our Gaiam family to understand how seriously we take this matter and we have moved swiftly to rectify this situation.
