LOVE my Gathre Mat!
So far I have loved my mat. We primarily use our mat outdoors so I wish the bottom of the mat didn’t pick up dirt and sand so easily and was easier to clean marks off of. Otherwise, it is beautiful and we will likely get a double sided mat in the future for more versatility. Also, I really wish these beautiful mats included a beautiful bag to carry them in. They can be a bit bulky at times and they would just look more elegant and complete with a beautiful lightweight carry bag.
Slice of luxury
This is the most ideal/ luxurious/ practical purchase by far!! I own quite a few Gathre products in various sizes and this one and my table cloth are a perfect tie! If you’re in the fence about one I highly suggest the investment. We take our mats everywhere and this one is no exception!
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!
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.
