DIY: Wood Block Printing

We love a solid essential. But sometimes, just sometimes, essentials need a little bit of customization. And as much as we love a good puffy painting party, raised smiley sunshine faces and stick figure kitty cats might not be the ideal match for every kit.

Bohemian printed yoga mats? We’re up for some down dogs!
If a fresh, premium quality yoga mat doesn’t inspire you to slip into a pair of stretchies, showing off your whimsical new print surely will. New at SWELL,  La Vie Boheme Yoga founders Yvette Charlton and Michaela Moryskova set out to launch a line that combined their sense of style, love of different cultures, and quality yoga products. The result: stand-out yoga mats that inspire equal amounts of sun salutations and wanderlust.
Each mat is extra thick, lightweight, and includes original artworks with a poem from Rumi. The coconut cream icing on the cake? The mats are latex-free and non-toxic, so you won’t leave your hot yoga class fuming.

New at SWELL: Issa De Mar

iss de mar one piece
We’re constantly on the search for a solid suit. One that doesn’t slip in the surf or stretch out after one season. One that mixes into our bikini wardrobe seamlessly and that follows through with the promise of “swim”-ability. Introducing THAT suit….the bikini version of the Little Black Dress from Issa de mar.
Born on the North Shore of Oahu, and raised in a tiger painted ice cream truck turned mobile marketplace, Issa de mar has finally made its way to SWELL. For designers Marissa Eveland and Melissa Jasniy, surfing, sewing and creativity is as much in their bones as there is salt in their hair. And needless to say (but we’ll say it anyways), their bikinis follow suit.
