Wild Rye, the premiere outdoor lifestyle apparel brand designed for and by women, today announces a limited-series camp pillow collaboration with HEST, the designer of premium sleep products built to bring the comforts of home to the outdoors.
The HEST X limited series works with admired artists and brands to create one-of-a-kind designs on HEST’s award-winning sleep products. The HEST X Wild Rye Camp Pillow is the third product release in the HEST X series.
Inspired by all things warm and tropical, Wild Rye’s deco birds print will be featured on the HEST X Wild Rye Camp Pillow and will have adventurers dreaming of pina coladas, whether they’re at the beach or the trailhead campground. Designed to provide home-pillow comfort but in a compact, portable adventure-ready package, The HEST X Wild Rye Camp Pillow has technical features and tidy details wrapped into one portable pillow. The temperature-resilient memory foam will keep your head in the clouds while the durable and pack-into-itself feature will keep it clean while you play.
“Being a historically challenged outdoor sleeper myself, I have been a huge fan of the HEST brand since the very beginning,” said Cassie Abel, Wild Rye founder. “Weekend bike trips typically involve camping, so we were excited to join forces and offer our community a solution for a better night’s rest, with the addition of some Wild Rye character. This partnership was right up our alley as HEST is a fellow Pacific Northwest brand committed to having fun and making the outdoors more accessible.”
“Throughout our journey to create products that elevate outdoor experiences, we constantly draw inspiration from artists and like-minded brands in our community,” said Aaron Ambuske, HEST founder. “The limited-edition series, HEST X, celebrates the beauty of collaboration and connection with the outdoors, ourselves, and those we share it with everyday. Getting to team up with an inclusive, accessible, and playful brand like our friends at Wild Rye is what the spirit of collaboration is all about!”
Wild Rye offers several other fan-favorite pieces in the new Deco Birds print, including the Lucille Sports Bra, Eleanor Chammy, Kaweah Short, Kendall Short, Lucy Party Shirt, Alturas Apres Shorts, Galena Gel Gloves, Edith Brim Hat, Bucket Hat, Camp Towel and socks. Shop the entire collection here.
