Slowtide x Arto Saari Drop Limited Capsule Collection
Today, Slowtide announces collaboration with Professional Skateboarder and Photographer, Arto Saari. Originally from Finland, Saari decided to pursue a career as a professional skateboarder in the late 90’s. Fast forward to 2001, he was on countless magazine covers and even won Thrasher’s Skater of the Year award. Through skating, his passion for photography is found and a new facet of his talent is explored. Five years ago, Arto and his family moved to the North Shore of Oahu where he developed a newfound passion for all things revolving around the ocean. The Slowtide x Arto Saari collection highlights a few of his favorite ocean images from his time in Hawaii. Each image comes with a deep backstory of things like how the swell was on that day, what surfers were out in the water, and what camera and lens he chose to shoot with on that day.
The Slowtide x Arto Saari collection features Arto’s photography on a new, tangible canvas: towels. Consisting of three 34 x 64 inch towels, this limited edition capsule collection consists of a printed velour front graphic and a non-printed looped terry 460 GSM back. Not only are the towels fit for purpose and built to last, but they dry your consciousness – this collection is 100% sustainably sourced and printed with a reactive dye that prevents fading over time.
