Loungaroo - The Revolutionary Travel Blanket

$10,262

On a trip to Australia in 2014 the plane ride was uncomfortably cold, and the airline blanket didn't help. Bouncing around hostels and couch surfing with friends inspired the idea of the ultimate travel blanket. The Loungaroo is like a kangaroo, sweatshirt, and sleeping bag combined.  It is the most innovative blanket in the world, and also doubles as a pillow. 

Like a little personalized cocoon.

Material - Premium brushed knit fleece that has a soft and super cozy inside, with an anti-microbial finish to help you stay clean. The blanket is one size fits all, and is easy to take care of - just machine wash and dry.

 

 

The blanket won’t fall off regardless of how you sleep.

After prototyping locally in Austin over the last year, we will have to move our production overseas in order to keep up with demand. We have chosen a material supply company in Shanghai that also does the cut and sew manufacturing for various apparel companies. 

Will allow us to purchase material in bulk from the supplier and meet the manufacturers minimum order quantity (MOQ). By contributing to Loungaroo in the very beginning we will always be forever grateful to you and our humble start. 

 

 

 

 

Traveling is always an adventure. 15 years after my first trip to Sydney, Australia I found myself back down under, but this time living in Melbourne. Having experienced the long cold flight, bouncing around hostels and couch surfing with friends, I knew there had to be a way to travel in comfort. Upon returning to the U.S. the Loungaroo idea came to me, and have worked tirelessly to bring it to life. The blanket inspires me to plan more exciting trips in far away places, and hope it will do the same for you. 

Risks and challenges

The risks and challenges faced with this project are similar to every other textile business produced overseas. We will stay on top of the supplier and manufacturer to ensure things are running timely and smoothly. Shipping can be delayed due to a variety of issues such as weather, or customs inspections. Although we cannot mitigate every risk, we are confident the hard work we've put in before the campaign will pay off in having a seamless execution fulfilling orders.
