The original Gathre mat was born because we wanted an easier way to spend time outside with our kids.

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.

First Mat, In Love

I got one of the maxi circles in Ginger for Christmas and now I want everything they sell. Honestly, waited a long time to get this mat so I had a ton of expectation going in but so far it’s surpassed every one. Has withstood dog claws, Southern red clay (granted the ”ginger” color does have a red tinge itself) and all sorts of other messes. I keep in my car for easy picnics or spots to play on the go but we also just got a new dining table and it’s currently there as a tablecloth aka barrier between it and my messy children and their sticky fingers/snack spills/crayons. Even being a rectangular table, the circular maxi works just fine!

Happy Summer days

Love the versatility of this mat. We have backyard picnics on the mat and it is so relaxing. Hope we have more great days with it. I have the Tannin in Maxi circle

Mat + Rug = YES

I wanted to get the Maxi mat because i love how big it is, but i wasn't sure how to go about padding... my little one was still learning to roll over and crawl and i was expecting a lot of head bonks. So after some serious research I went ahead and ordered the Maxi + and a plush 8 ft round rug. I love the layered effect, it's super soft, and easily wipeable. We spend a lot of time in this playroom and we get so many compliments from friends and family. If you're not sure, let me be convince you it's worth every penny and has withstood spit ups, spills and one rambunctious puppy too!

I'm Hooked

Just recently found this brand while looking for a changing mat for my new baby, so I decided to splurge because the reviews seem so awesome. Best decision ever!! I bought a few different mats from them and now I'm hooked. The Maxi mat in particular gets the most use this summer with all the outdoor gatherings. It is soft and rolls/folds well for easy carrying and is also very stylish than the other plastic picnic mats on the market. I got the Gather carrier to use with mine, the carrier could be a bit better but overall it does the trick. Already have another order in for more mats on the way!
