#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: Summer '16 Collection
Summer is right around the corner and we can hardly wait. 

In celebration of our favorite upcoming season, we wanted to share a sneak peek of some of the new Summer '16 collection! 

The influence of Walter Katin' love for the sea and his many boating explorations took Katin Creative Director Jason Rodriguez on a journey through Katin’s oceanic past and is directly reflected throughout the the color narrative and graphic guidance of the upcoming Summer 2016 collection.
Paralleling the theme of Spring '16, the Summer collection infuses versatile shades of indigo and turquoise complemented by beige, gray and lighthouse-red and yellow hues woven within flexible fibers in company with unique cuts and washes, while rugged, ocean-inspired prints permeate throughout the collection.

Stay tuned for the official collection release in just a few weeks,

#TBT: The Original Surf Trunk

#TBT: The Original Surf Trunk

 

For this week's Katin throwback, we want to share a little slice of history. The original Katin surf trunk design patterns from the late 1950s, which are still used to construct our surf trunks today.

Walter Katin designed these original patterns himself, and we continue to pay homage to the Katin legacy through our high-quality and durable surf trunks.

Today, Sato Hughes, the Katin seamstress since 1961, still uses these original patterns to custom make trunks for folks as well.
