Matador was born in a 10x10 foot San Francisco bedroom in 2014 when its founders stumbled on a trend; people sitting outside on their coats or lugging bulky blankets across town to the parks and beaches. We thought there has to be a better solution, and that's when the Matador Pocket Blanket was born.
What started as a pocket-sized blanket that unfolds to seat 4 became a passion for designing and developing packable adventure gear. It’s a totally new category that Matador is introducing to the world. Their mission is to make your travels and adventures more convenient through high-quality packable gear. Quickly outgrowing that San Francisco bedroom, the company relocated to colorful Boulder, Colorado (where the streets meet the mountains) in 2015. The team believes in staying true to their roots and Boulder is an adventure mecca. They use the local mountains, rivers, and plains as their testing grounds and think there’s no better place for it.
All of Matador's products are designed entirely by their team in the Boulder office. Every team member is passionate about the outdoors, travel, and adventure. This passion translates into well designed, thoroughly tested, highly capable products that you can depend on. With a focus on the future, the Matador team is using their strengths in consumer research, design, and cutting edge material technology to continue developing the innovative products that modern customers expect.
In a world full of high-tech devices, traffic jams, and constant connectivity, their mantra is more important now than ever. So go ahead, "Put yourself out there.”
