I really like the maxi size- I thought it would be too big, but it folds nicely and you can fit a lot of people and stuff on it! My only issue is that I don’t realize it was three pieces of fabric sewn together. It’s not all one piece. It looks ok, and I’m not sure if I would have done anything differently knowing that, I just wish I knew what to expect! It’s still beautiful and functional.
The Maxi mat is so soft and we absolutely love the color. Such a great mat to play outdoors and to use on the dock for vacation!
I know maxis are expensive, but I think they're the best item Gathre makes. You can use them as a tablecloth, outside mat, slip and slide, double it up for make shift workout mat. They are a little heavier, but what do you expect when you've got comfortable seating for 4+ people?
Even with the measurements, I was surprised with how large this was. It fits our family of 4 with no problem. We use it for indoor and outdoor play almost every week. The wrinkles come out easily and messes wipe out with hardly any effort. She's a keeper.
The Maxi is huge will! It will be great for our outdoor adventures as a family of 5. It's great quality!
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.
