Slowtide was founded in 2015 by Kyle Spencer, Dario Phillips & Wylie Von Tempsky in California. "We started Slowtide to fill a void in a market we found to be uninspiring and mundane. The first product we created was a functional, new medium for art on a premium 100% cotton towel. Since then we’ve 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 our love for art, Slowtide is a collaboration of three friends who wanted to convey their lifestyle through unique products."
