If you’re thinking about getting into foam rolling, The Warbler from 42 Birds is the best-looking one we’ve seen. You already know foam rolling is helpful to increase flexibility and decrease muscle soreness, but it’s hard to find a foam roller that you’d leave out in your living room. Most are bright or made from a bulky plastic that looks straight off a child’s toy. The Warbler is different given that it’s made exclusively from cork.
The outer ridges keep it from rolling all over your floor when you’re trying to get the knots out of your upper back — plus the ridges provide some edges to help you massage out sore calves and quads. Flip the foam roller on its side and it’ll double as an (exceptionally) small seat or table, but can be perfect for apartments and other small dwellings. 42 Birds specializes in earth-friendly yoga products like mats, massage balls and blocks — all made from 100 percent sustainable cork sourced from Spain and Portugal. The Warbler is the newest product from the brand, and you can become a backer on Kickstarter. It’s already funded so, now’s the time to order so it’ll arrive within the first batch of delivery in April.
