Sleeping bag made of Paper

Anders Eriksson, Örnsköldsik, Sweden has with assistance of Duni Skåpafors produced a prototype of a sleeping bag made of paper. 85% of the sleeping bag consists of a type of cellulose fibres called fluff pulp, the same material as in napkins. The casing is made of polypropylene. The weight of the sleeping bag is only 800 g. It will keep warm to +5 °C, a doubled one to -8 °C. At first hand the sleeping bag is thought to be used in state of disaster. It could also be used as disposable bag at camping grounds and youth hostels. Icehotel Jukkasjäri is the first customer. They are going to use the material as sleeping mats.
