I have several maxi mats that I love and had read that the double-sided are really great for the beach. I ordered one and tried it out several times last week. It is worth every penny. I got the blanc/raven color hoping that the blanc side would be cool enough to sit on. It was great. The best part was when we packed up, all the sand slid off both sides with ease. It is heavier and doesn’t compact as small as the regular version, but I am sold on this type of mat. Thanks, Gathre!
I have been considering buying a Gathre mat for a few months and finally pulled the trigger and am seriously kicking myself for not buying it sooner! My kids LOVE our mat and we have seriously used it every single day since it arrived. Such a beautiful and versatile product, we have used it at the park, in our yard, on our deck and are packing it for the Oregon coast this week. I would HIGHLY recommend it!
We absolutely love this mat! It is big enough for the whole family, easy to wash and feels like butter! We've used it every day since we got it!
Love this mat!
I’m new to the Gathre family, but it didn’t take long until I was hooked! I love everything about the product, and about the people behind the brand! My fog maxi circle will get SO MUCH use this summer with my two young children and a newborn on the way. It’s awesome to know we can go to the pool or to the lake or even just to the park, and not have to worry about the blanket getting dirty or wet or scrunching up with my kids hopping on and off of it.
Got the maxi just in time for our family’s road trip and we used it for baby tummy time in the hotel and hanging out at the beach. It’s becoming a family favorite!
Why We Made The Maxi
The original Gathre mat was born because we wanted an easier way to spend time outside with our kids. We sampled countless fabrics and constructions until we settled on a bonded leather mat because it offered the best of look, feel, and function.
The Maxi’s buttery soft surface may look too pretty to make a mess on, but take our word for it - it’s built for heavy wear.
We call it the first portable foundation for gathering that doesn't sacrifice function for the sake of style. Think a tarp, only pretty, or a blanket that wipes off easily and won't soak through. Whatever adventures your family has planned, Maxi is ready to go along for the ride.
