Why Did Manduka Discontinue Togitoes Headbands?

The Sad News About Manduka Yogitoes Headbands

If you've been to a yoga class in the past few years, chances are you've seen Yogitoes headbands, also called "hbands". These headbands were popular among students and teachers alike. Sadly, production of Yogitoes headbands has ceased and the headbands are discontinued, no longer available for purchase.

Manduka, the company that produced Yogitoes, has not released any official statement about the discontinuation, however, many speculate that the company decided to discontinue Yogitoes in order to focus on their core Manduka yoga mat business.

In 2015, Manduka was purchased by a private equity firm. Since then, the company has undergone a number of changes, including layoffs, factory closures, and moves away from sustainable and environmentally friendly practices.

Yogitoes was a fairly small part of Manduka's business, and it is possible that the company decided that it was not worth continuing to invest in the line.

It's always sad when a beloved product is discontinued but whatever the reason, yoga students now have an even better new headband to replace Manduka!

Enter Ethyk

Ethyk's new BrainBelt headbands are soft, absorbent, and lightweight and made entirely from organic cotton in Detroit, USA - unlike Manduka that was made in India.  So if you're looking for a colorful, environmental, hard-working, sweat-wicking headband to use during your next yoga class, check out the BrainBelt headband today.  There are 6 colors available so you'll aways find one to match your style.
