PORTLAND, Ore. (Feb. 25, 2020) – Rumpl, the Portland-based category leader in technical blankets, has collaborated with Portland’s renowned graphic designer Aaron Draplin to develop a limited, one-of-a-kind blanket collection that will launch in Portland on February 27, 2020. The event will offer participants an opportunity to meet Draplin and shop the collection before it becomes more widely available in March. Due to Draplin’s following and Rumpl’s growing popularity, the launch event quickly sold out, with attendees flying in from across the country for a chance to meet the artist in person.

“We’ve been fans of Draplin and his work at Rumpl for years. It’s really exciting to have the opportunity to collaborate with an artist of his caliber and to see his creative vision come to life in this way,” says Rumpl Founder and CEO Wylie Robinson. “The event will be a blast. With a full guest list and growing waitlist, we are thrilled to see such high energy and excitement for this collection.”

Since its founding in 2013, Rumpl has established itself as the leading innovator in the technical blanket category, creating versatile blankets with premium technical materials, post-consumer recycled goods and fresh, colorful designs. Rumpl has a a mission to introduce the world to better blankets and is dedicated to expanding the category to produce blankets made for everywhere. The new collection with Aaron Draplin falls within Rumpl’s growing Artist Series, which includes unique designs developed closely with select artists.

Aaron Draplin is a Portland-based designer and the founder of Draplin Design Co. (DDC), where he works on diverse design projects and collaborations with the mission of doing good work for good people. In addition to Rumpl, DDC has worked with brands such as Nike, Burton Snowboards and Field Notes.

“My favorite projects are the things that you feel just shouldn't exist. An adventure blanket? I don't go into the woods. I don't hike. I don't even go outside,” says Aaron Draplin. “Rumpl handed me the keys and we made something for The Great Indoors! Netflix and below! And yet, could hold up in the back of my van that one time I go camping each year? These do the job. Come see them up close, friends!"

The Rumpl x Draplin event will take place Thursday, February 27 at the Swift Agency in Portland, Oregon. For additional event details, please visit: https://bit.ly/2SNYnIm
