Lake Oswego, Ore., November 15, 2018 – Oregon-based outdoor lifestyle companies Yakima and Rumpl have teamed up with Bend, Ore. artist Adam Haynes of Stickfort to create a beautiful, limited-edition blanket, just in time for the holidays. The Yakima x Stickfort x Rumpl Blanket translates two of Oregon’s most iconic natural features – Mount Hood and the Columbia River Gorge – into a cozy and eye-catching puffy blanket that’s ideal for both life at home and on the road. It’s sized to perfectly fit Yakima’s popular roof top tent, the SkyRise.
The limited-edition puffy blanket is now available online at Yakima.com and Rumpl.com for $159. For every blanket sold, a portion of sales will be donated to Friends of the Columbia Gorge to support their work in protecting and restoring the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area, which was severely affected by the Eagle Creek Fire of Fall 2017.
“This is a fun collaboration celebrating love our home state of Oregon and its incredible outdoors. Yakima knows road tripping, adventuring, and camping, and Rumpl is an expert on making versatile blankets, and we’re excited to collaborate again with the incredibly talented Adam Haynes,” said Summer Henderson, Brand Director at Yakima. ”Adam has beautifully captured our backyard and we think this is going to be a highly coveted gift this holiday season. Plus, we’ve been huge fans of Rumpl from the beginning, and are excited to partner with them for the first time.”
Yakima previously worked with Adam on a Special Edition National Park ShowCase cargo box and poster celebrating the National Park Centennial.
“As a native Oregonian, I’m thrilled to team up with these two great Oregon brands, and to showcase our shared region in such a unique – and incredibly cozy – way,” said Adam Haynes.
