Slowtide was founded in 2015 by Kyle Spencer, Dario Phillips & Wylie Von Tempsky in California. They started Slowtide to fill a void in a market they found to be uninspiring and mundane. The first product they created was a functional, new medium for art on a premium 100% cotton towel. Since then Slowtide has introduced a selection of beach and bath towels, blankets and ponchos made from a variety of best-in-class materials. Inspired by all bodies of water and a love for art, Slowtide is a collaboration of three friends who wanted to convey their lifestyle through unique products.
Slowtide has been featured in GQ, HypeBeast, Outside Magazine, Vogue, Forbes, Surfer Magazine & Juxtapoz. Slowtide works with world-renowned artists, athletes and brands like Sage Erickson, Takashi Murakami, Stussy, Curren Caples, Clark Little and Acacia Swimwear. their goal is to make the daily ritual of drying off an art form.
