Slowtide Sustainability Practices
Every garment we make impacts our environment, and we take responsibility for doing everything we can to minimize, control, and reduce those impacts. We work tirelessly to design and manufacture the highest quality towels and blankets. We've built decade-long relationships to ensure we work with the best in their field. A transparent and responsible manufacturing process is important to the foundation of our brand.
