Ishizawa wrote about why she created the bag on her website:

 
 

By having the experience of transitional discoveries like finding a bear, realizing a little human face in his mouth, and recognizing details and shape of this commodity, I attempt to create this work as to be a medium for audiences to generate one’s transitional perceptions and fantasies in reality.

 
 

Basically, if you ever wondered what it’s like to be a bear, this is your chance.

 

But you have to act quickly. “This work will be limitedly produced in unknown period, approximately only within these years,” the site states. on the site. Plus, this sleeping bag has a price tag that is sure to Baloo your mind — $2,350.

 

If you can bear the cost, you can order it at Ishizawa’s website.
