Mazama climb leader Karen Graves is not only dedicated to leading people to mountain summits, she is also a staunch Leave-No-Trace advocate. Last week, she brought us the idea of custom Mazama Kula cloths and we ran with it! Kim Freeman, who created the Mt. Adams design for our Mazama face masks, gave us the go-ahead to use her artwork on a custom Kula and utilizing Kula's custom template, we have the design all ready to go. Bonus—Kula Cloth is a local, woman-owned company! Pre-order your Kula cloth now.
This is a pre-order form for this custom Mazama design. The production timeline for custom Kula cloths is approximately 6 weeks.
What's a Kula Cloth?
A Kula Cloth® is the first of its kind - an intentionally (and obsessively) designed reusable antimicrobial pee cloth! In a wilderness setting, it's very important to have good hygiene. Traditionally, we either pack in excess amounts of toilet paper and/or employ the "shaking off" method (aka drip dry). Neither of these are good options. A pee cloth is a way that we can stay comfortable AND have a positive impact on the environment at the same time.
The Kula Cloth® was designed for anybody who squats when they pee (or uses a pee-funnel)! Some people use Kula as a handkerchief or a small washcloth. By using a Kula Cloth®, you are reducing the amount of toilet paper that you have to carry into the wilderness!
