About this project
Rumpl was started by a team of active designers who love the outdoors.
On an ill-fated camping trip in early 2013, we praised our sleeping bags for keeping us warm and comfortable while stranded on the side of the road in sub-zero temperatures. We realized that all the amazing materials used in puffy jackets and sleeping bags could be used in a blanket. When we returned home we set off to create a better blanket for everyday use, paying close attention to comfort and modern design. The deeper we dug into this project, and the more we learned about the capability of the materials we selected, the more we realized how versatile this blanket is: soft, durable, stain and odor resistant.
We encourage you to find your own use.
Our team is a group of active people that work as designers and product engineers. We have over 20 years of experience creating consumer products for major companies, including Mountain Hardware and Marmot. Rumpl is special because it's something we wanted to use in our own lives, so we concentrated on every detail to ensure that the product is designed perfectly.
Our Supplier & Manufacturer:
Our material supplier is the same one who sells to many of the major jacket and sleeping bag brands. The material is made from ultra-fine 20D Ripstop nylon and coated with DWR to repel water, even after many washes.
We have selected a manufacturer that has extensive experience producing premium bedding products for major brands. They are also equipped with the latest machines capable of making our unique patterns and have the know-how to work with our premium materials. Our manufacturer is capable of mass producing this product exactly as we have envisioned it and is able to assure quality control over large orders. Our factory samples are exactly the same as what we will be shipping to our backers, the product is 100% designed and ready to go. Fulfillment will be handled in San Francisco by our team.
1. Keep design at the forefront of every decision.
2. Source only the best materials.
3. A continued focus on improving our product.
4. Promote the pursuit of an active, balanced lifestyle.
Your contribution will allow us to purchase our materials at a bulk rate and meet minimum order quantities at our factory. If we exceed our initial funding goal we will be able to offer more color and styling options to our backers.
Risks and challenges
We have done our best to mitigate the risks and challenges for this project:
• We have several working FACTORY SAMPLES and can proudly state that the product is outstanding.
• Wrapping up a 6 month development process in which we scrutinized material for the perfect combination of durability and feel, as well as the long process of vetting manufacturers with the capability to produce our unique design.
• We've got a production schedule and are confident in our suppliers and vendors for delivering on time.
We do not expect any technical risks, and our team has worked extremely hard to get all the pieces in order before launching this campaign. However, our experience has shown that there are always inherent risks of delay in the process when mass producing anything for the first time.
We assure that we will keep our backers up-to-date on the all the latest news, and will operate as transparently as possible so you can follow us on our journey. The blanket has already been proven in real-life situations such as movie nights in the park, keeping our group warm during a campfire ban in Big Sur, and of course months of rolling around in bed.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
