The Birth of Tropical Seas Clothing
Tropical Seas Clothing was established in 2017, inspired by a pivotal moment during a spearfishing expedition with a close friend. On this fateful journey, our founder, Tyler Blendowski, was deeply moved by the distressing sight of extensive pollution in what should have been a pristine environment. This jarring encounter left an indelible mark on Tyler's conscience, compelling him to take action. It was from this moment of environmental awakening that the vision for Tropical Seas Clothing was born.
