We love our maxi. We use it all the time on the grass and at the beach. When the kids get on it at the beach and get it wet it dries very quickly unlike towels that just stay wet and get sand stuck to them. On the grass we stay dry even when the grass is damp. It works very well for our lifestyle now with young kids. We read books on it and the kids bring their toys and play on it. In the future I can see us using it for baseball and t-ball practice. It’s just one of the things we will always have. It’s super cute in photos and is so soft. My husband and l and our four children all fit very comfortably on it. We have the square double sided maxi.
One of my top purchase for my twins it so large they both can roll around on the floor and I don’t need to worry that they will roll off of it. Quality is amazing and so easy to clean. Have my eye on another one.
I ordered this mat to use outside for our family of 5. It has been a dream to use and easy to clean up. The well thought out addition of a strip of fabric on the back corner makes it easy to hang to air out after use. Lovely color and great for backgrounds in photos. Highly recommend!
I debated on the smaller size but I’m so glad I went bigger. The Maxi fits our family of 4 comfortably with room to spare. We’ve all layed on it looking up at the clouds on a beautiful day:) Was a little nervous when it got wet (even tho it’s waterproof) and it was totally fine! It’s SO soft and the quality is amazing. If you’re debating what size to get - size up. Trust me. Even if you have to wait for a sale. You won’t be disappointed!!
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.
