Hugger Mugger

Definition - What does Hugger Mugger mean?

Hugger Mugger Yoga Products is a company based in Salt Lake City, Utah. It manufactures and sells yoga-related products. Among the products that they sell are yoga mats, towels, rugs and clothing. The name of the company comes from the name given to the unisex yoga shorts with a thigh band that was among their early products.

Arguably their most iconic current product is the Tapas yoga mat, which was the very first non-slip and long-lasting mat made with a yogi in mind.

Yogapedia explains Hugger Mugger

Founded in 1986 by furniture maker Sara Chambers, Hugger Mugger has developed into one of the biggest producers of yoga products worldwide. Chambers discovered the need for specifically designed yoga products when she started going to classes. She was hooked on yoga, but realized that there was a lack of appropriate clothing and accessories, which encouraged her to make her own.

Hugger Mugger's sustainable and eco-conscious philosophy is described as being “compatible with yogic ideals,” and their manufacturing process uses natural or recycled materials with minimal amounts of electricity.

The company motto is “Celebrate the Journey:” a phrase based on the company’s belief that yoga is an enriching part of the journey that is life.
