Improving upon a very old tradition of weaved prayer rugs is an ambitious task which couldn't have been easier than it is now (with all the interconnections that the internet brings) and Modest Path has done a good job.. But - improvements can always be further improved!
1. The smell: The Sajdah is the core of Salah.. forcing great intimacy between the prayer rug and the nose. The strong smell of the material immediately made me long for the traditional mats or even a simple clean cloth. Unlike Yoga mats, the smell here is pretty important, or even the absence of any smell for that matter.
2. The width: While most traditional rugs are also too narrow for a man's Sajdah made with grace, wider ones are available with a bit of searching. It may be a bit of wishful thinking on my part to expect this new modern mat to accommodate my arms, although the width works great for my wife. I wish it was about a foot wider.
3. Folding: Did you know most people fold their prayers rugs all wrong.. bringing the bottom part where the feet go right against the top part where the head touches .. the correct way to fold pryer mats is vertically.. in the middle, bringing the left half against the right half.
4. velcro/handle etc. Adding some kind of strap to roll it up/fold it up and then have a handle to carry it would be just perfect..
5. Patterns from nature, less from culture. Cultural patterns make this Universal path restrictive in today's global fast zip zapping world.. while patterns of nature are Signs from GOD that could unite us all.
Overall, four stars.. Hoping to see more of what these creative awesome folks come up with for their next iteration.
God Bless you all.
