The Art of Drying Off

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.

We’ve 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. Our goal is to make the daily ritual of drying off an art form.
