#KATINVAULT: California Grown

#KATINVAULT: California Grown
This week we want to simply pay homage to our home state, the place where our brand was born and raised since 1954, California.
Born and bred in California since 1954, Katin remains a staple for Southern California culture. While continuing to pay tribute to its iconic beachside heritage, Katin embraces all of the Golden State’s versatile terrains, from the southern sunny beaches and bold desert bedrocks to the dense northern forests and snowcapped mountaintops.

Honoring this limitless exploration of California, Katin continues to embrace the traveler within, while also honoring the company’s legendary history through each carefully crafted collection. With every step taken and every terrain explored, Katin encourages everyone to get out there and embrace an experience.

SNEAK PEEK: Spring/Summer '17 Collection
Katin is excited to share an exclusive sneak peek of our Spring/Summer ’17 collection, dropping in just a few weeks. 
Born by the beach and raised along the California coast, Katin proudly embodies the life of a true explorer.

With this adventure concept, the Katin crew headed to Catalina Island to embrace the island lifestyle, and capture its natural-born beauty for the Spring/Summer ’17
collection.
Embracing Catalina’s many versatile landscapes, from the island’s cliffside beaches to its soaring mountaintops, for this warm-weathered collection, Katin fuses together earth-tone shades of beige and roasted orange, with bold hues of lavender and smalt blue.
Bringing rugged textures to life, Katin creative director Jason Rodriguez says the collection’s prints centralized on environmental specifics, from the open ocean’s rugged white caps and the colorful island rocks, blended with classic images from Katin’s iconic heritage.

#KatinVault: The Father of Katin

#KatinVault: The Father of Katin
In honor of Father's Day, we want to pay tribute to the man who started it all, the father of Katin, Mr. Walter Katin.   

 Walter, a tenaciously friendly man, both short and robust, always donned an iconic ensemble of a powder-blue jumpsuits zipped up to the neck with a captain’s hat. Earning the nickname the “Captain,” for both his style and passion for sailing his boat “The Southern Seas,” Walter proudly took on the title of craftsman within the canvas business. Walter even designed the very first surf trunk himself.


Today we proudly continue to pay tribute to Walter and his iconic legacy through each collection we produce.
