Our Promises & Practices

Slowtide strives to use the most sustainable materials and invests in new fabric innovations to ensure we’re reducing our impact on the planet. We prioritize natural fibers but also use recycled synthetics where they have a clear performance and/or durability advantage. We work tirelessly to design and manufacture the highest quality towels, blankets & ponchos. We’ve built decade-long relationships to ensure we work with the best manufacturers in their field. A transparent and responsible manufacturing process is important to the foundation of our brand.

Our Quality

Slowtide is committed to creating superlative products that are guaranteed to last. We have traveled around the world in search of the best factories, assuring they have fair working conditions and happy employees. Since our inception, we have become towel experts:

We think of the things that no one else considers to provide the best product possible.

From sustainable materials, to details like size, weight, weaving techniques, hanging loops, and reusable packaging, quite frankly, we’ve thought of it all. We obsess over the little details so you have a product you will truly fall in love with.
