We’re Jess and Mare. We are best friends, business partners, and the creators of Gathre (pronounced gath-ur). As young moms, we struggled with the disconnect between wanting to live with intention and having lives so jam-packed we could hardly keep up. We realized if we wanted to live purposefully, we’d have to first clear out a little space.
Our original Gathre mat was born out of this mentality - it gave us a literal space to gather with our kids, but was always about more. It was about making the effort to create a moment. Not a blip or a blur or a blink of an eye - a space of time where we could stop and be together.
We’ve expanded our product line since those early days, but everything we make still creates space. Everything we make proves that beautiful things can be functional, that less can be more, that the effort to be together is always worth it.
