THE COMPANY A direct-to-consumer eCommerce company that sells modern leather goods.

BRIGHT SPOTS Gather round. This story begins with a leather mat that was designed to be a portable place for families to gather on the go. Six years and a variety of products later, Gathre has become an ecommerce destination and community where function meets beauty. (And the original leather mat is still the No. 1 bestseller.)
