Every writer, artist and creative knows how important the proper notebook is. You never know when creativity will strike. A good notebook is a #gamechanger, providing an outlet to express your most profound thoughts and creative moments. For us, surf-inspired brand, AllSwell, provides the best of both text and visual worlds – one side is lined for writing, and the other is blank for doodling, so matter our mood, there are pages to fill.
AllSwell’s latest collaboration is a project that we’re stoked on too – it’s called “The Kit”, combining the creative talents of KASSIA, Summer Bummer, and EiR NYC to create a a zippered neoprene pouch filled with beach adventure essentials, including a surf-inspired AllSwell notebook cover. Hailing from both the West and East coasts, the collaborators wanted to share their passion for surf, entrepreneurial spirits, and a mutual love of expressing themselves both on the waves and on paper.
“The Kit” consists of:
- EiR Surf Mud Pro Stick SPF 50 – Environmentally friendly, all-natural and chemical-free, containing zinc for UV sun protection, chocolate for deep hydration and antioxidants that fight free radicals.
- Triangular bar of KASSIA wax — Kassia’s “magic surf wax” is infused with Palo Santo, a tree burned in ceremonies by Shaman and medicine people known for its cleansing and healing properties.
- AllSwell Notebook No.2 — This collaboration edition features Kassia Meador’s photography on the exterior and illustrations on the interior covers of products and pieces from each lady’s collections, as well as items that lend themselves to a full day deployment at the beach: swim fins, a ukelele, an old-school Igloo-style cooler, a cold bottle of Bud, etc. 8.5 x 6.5 inches and made of recycled materials.
- Summer Bummer Pouch — All this goodness is tucked inside a 10 x 11 in custom Summer Bummer zip pouch made from space-dyed neoprene, using a print taken from KASSIA’s new wetsuit line. Resilient to water & features Summer Bummer’s signature oversized zipper.
10% of proceeds from the collaboration will benefit Waves for Water
