It’s a mat. It’s a tapestry. It’s a diaper bag staple.
Equal parts space-maker and educational tool, our World Map Mat has endless uses in and outside of the home. Playmats, placemats, picnic blankets — we love to see how our community finds ways to make this Gathre bestseller their own.
What started a few years back as a tapestry painting by our dear (and talented!) friend Merrilee Liddiard for her kids and home, later took on a new life as a Gathre mat collaboration in 2018. Since then, our World Map has expanded in size options and footprint in homes across the country — and dare we say, globe!
“I really came to love — even more — all the corners of this world we call home. We're all in this together. It's our world — the only one we've got, and we have a responsibility to her. To learn about her peoples, landscapes and stories. To respect her. To love her. And this mat collab with @gathre is a perfect way to share all of that with our children — our world’s future.” – Merrilee Liddiard, artist at Mer Mag
