Having a team of avid travelers, outdoor adventurers, and urban dwellers from all walks of life, we didn't find the average sleeping bag always ideal. We wanted to make a blanket that fit a much wider use base than your average sleeping bag or travel blanket. A blanket that would work at the beach, or the ballpark, a family reunion or a music festival,  in the mountains or the city. We did our homework through lots of market research and spending countless hours we were able to create what we felt could be the world's most functional adventure blanket, “The Kachula”. 

IT'S BIG ENOUGH TO ACTUALLY USE AS A BLANKET...

 AND SMALL ENOUGH TO FIT ANYWHERE OR USE AS A PILLOW...

Because we worked so hard on the V1, we really only wanted to make a few additions to the new Kachula V2. These key changes and improvements will take our adventure blanket to the next level:

The Kachula is ready for every situation:

Kachula 1.0

We had great success with the Kachula 1.0. We had major retailers, positive reviews and solid sales. 

But the Kachula wasn't done maturing yet. After rigorous testing and abuse we found ways to improve upon our design and now bring Kickstarter a product we're confident you will agree is the world's most functional adventure blanket. 

The Kachula V2 adds a waterproof hood and reinforced the snaps to make it more connectable..

 

 

 

 

  

 

 

Who is Coalatree?

Coalatree started out in 2010 by a group of friends on a journey to create sustainably sourced apparel and multi-use products.

Our mission is to bring you comfortable, durable and highly functional products that can be enjoyed whether you are in the mountains or in a sprawling city. The majority of our products are made from organic or recycled materials. We are passionate about sourcing the finest sustainable materials.

Coalatree products have been sold nationwide by big box retailers like Urban Outfitters and large online retailers like Backcountry.com. After trying the traditional brick & mortar retail model Coalatree decided to pivot the business online to reach a larger audience. This led us to bring our newest product to Kickstarter.

 

We know you will love your Kachula as much as you love your adventures. To see how people are using their Kachulas and other Coalatree products check us out on Instagram @Coalatree #MTN2CTY #GREETTHEOUTDOORS

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

This is Coalatree's first Kickstarter project and we understand that there are some hesitations with backing us. We have been around since 2010 and some great experience under our belts on how to manufacture goods and fulfill lots of orders in a relatively short amount of time.

We've had our share of unexpected issues while working with major retailers like Urban Outfitters. However, we have always dealt with them in a way that leaves every last customer happy with their purchase and proud to support our company.

With the Kachula V2 we already had the perfect fabric from Everest Textile Mill out of Taiwan. An eco-friendly waterproof flannel, and rip-stop nylon backing to ensure quality. They were able to produce the fabric for our version 1.0, and we will continue working with them for version 2. Everest Textile Mill is a bluesign, eco friendly minded resource for Coalatree. We only partner with factories and companies that care about reducing, reusing and recycling initiatives.

After an array of samples, modifications and revisions we feel like we have the best possible product now.

We are getting better and better at managing our supply chain. We understand that there are still some risk here with fulfillment being delayed. For example, if a container shipment is delayed for 2 weeks in customs or a batch of new parts doesn't pass Quality Control, our fulfillment schedule could be pushed back by a week or two.

We have already queued our manufacturers to ensure production as soon as we are funded and will be ready to ship as soon as they finish building them. We expect everyone will be able to receive their order before Thanksgiving 2016.
