January 27, 2021
Inspired by the unique flora and fauna in Chile’s Parque Oncol Forest Preserve
Encinitas, Calif. (Jan. 27, 2021) – Inspired by the exceptional flora and fauna found deep in the Chilean forest preserve of Parque Oncol, Selk’bag is excited to launch its newest wearable sleeping bag made from 100% recycled material, the Rainforest. The limited edition Rainforest bag is designed to keep you cozy for a range of indoor and outdoor adventures including road trips, camping, hiking in nature, working from home or weekend lounging pursuits.
As one of the largest reserves of biodiversity on the planet, Parque Oncol is nestled on the coast of Valdivia, in northern Chilean Patagonia. At the southern end of the world, the region is home to an immense collection of plants and animals, many of which can only be found there.
“Creating our Rainforest bag with recycled materials is the next step in accomplishing our larger sustainability mission in 2021,” said Cristobal Murillo, co-founder and CEO of Selk’bag. “Our Chilean-based design team has long been inspired by Parque Oncol’s unique climate and biodiversity. We felt compelled to share its unparalleled beauty with our community, and help draw attention to the wonders nature has to offer.”
Each limited edition Rainforest bag features a hand-drawn print that includes plants and birds unique to Parque Oncol’s forest like the Monito del Monte (a small marsupial opossum) and the Chucao bird. Check out the park’s ecosystem via a virtual tour at http://tourvirtual.parqueoncol.cl/.
Now available for pre-order exclusively on Selk’bag, the Rainforest is crafted with 100% post-consumer recycled materials including fabric that utilizes 54 discarded plastic bottles to create each bag. Filled with 100% post-consumer recycled insulation, the Rainforest also features double slider zippers, adjustable hood, easy-access hand openings, kangaroo pocket and removable booties. The DWR water-resistant polyester shell keeps you warm and the bag features an ISO temperature rating of 55⁰F for comfort. Lightweight and packable, the Rainforest easily stuffs into its compression bag for transporting or storage. MSRP $129.
