Matador Started in 2014 with a simple observation. While unwinding at a park in San Francisco, we noticed people sitting in the grass on their coats and hauling hefty blankets. We thought, there must be a better way. Soon thereafter we launched the Matador Pocket Blanket- a waterproof seating surface that fits in a pocket. We knew we were onto something. Working it out of a 10 x 10 foot San Francisco bedroom, we leveraged the success of the Pocket Blanket to develop a line of simple, thoughtful products designed for people on the go. Out love of travel and the outdoors inspired our focus on adventure travel. The more we travelled, the more opportunities we saw to apply our experience in materials and design to solve common travel challenges. One product at a time, we grew the Pocket Blanket into a brand of ultralight travel gear.
