Gathre Mat NZ Stockists. Gathre are famous for their World map and Village mats. Gathre created 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. Gathre mats are simply designed, with a clean debossed logo and simple finishing stitch. Flocked suede lends a neutral backing that's built for wear. Gathre's faux leather is buttery soft, giving your mat an almost magnetic ability to draw people in.
