Gather Around / Foldable Micnic Mat

Gather Around

Picnic is one of the most important social formalities in the world, but this activity always gets in embarrassment. For example, the wind blew the picnic mat before you have paved it, so you can’t furnish well on the mat. Alternatively, you accidentally tipped over drinks and food in your side when you are talking with your friends and family, the mat became mess and the atmosphere being down.

Gather Around solves the situation. Different from the picnic mat we known, we
Put the magnets in the edge of the mat, so the mat will not be blown. We also design the picnic mat that can fold into picnic table with magnets.
