I initially purchased the Maxi in fog after not being able to snag the color I originally wanted. When it came I wasn't sure about the color or the size (it seemed so big and I didn't think it would be easy to tote around). I was about to return it but decided against it since I didn't know how long I'd have to wait for the mat I wanted to restock. I AM SO SO GLAD I KEPT THIS MAT! I love the color after all and the size is perfect. It fits my family of 4 (with room to spare) and carrying it around is no big deal. I found a small canvas tote and the mat folds up and fits inside perfectly. The mat is durable, so soft, and makes long days at the park so much more comfortable (I have a newborn and it's nice and soft for her to lay on, and cleans easily). My only regret is not purchasing this sooner.
Absolutely stunning!duch a beautiful blue! Can’t wait for all the memories we are going to create with this mat!
Love our Maxi! It’s a great size and arrived super quick. Loving our Gathre products so far.
This is better than I thought it would be. Love it and it is perfect for the beach!
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.
