From Laguna with Love: Seea x Thalia

Posted by Rhea on

Another exclusive collaboration. 
From sketches and swatches on paper... real life! 

Seea was founded in the DIY spirit that if you have an idea, you can make it happen. For me, this idea was simple: To create rashguards and suits that were stylish, functional and comfortable for surfing. As a supporter of creative artists, Thalia Surf Shop was one of the first retailers to carry SEEA, and has been one of our main supporters over the last two years, helping transform a dreamy idea into reality.

Made with the hopes of inspiring others to follow their dreams, we proudly present MADE IN THE USA, a short video following the creation of our second custom project with Thalia, from concept to the factory to the surf.

For our second exclusive collaboration with Thalia, owner Nick Cocores came along for the ride (or in this case, actually drove the swanky VW bug) to see the step-by-step production process of the Thalia x Seea Doheny rashguard, Swami's playsuit and surf leggings.

Yes, we really drove all the way from San Clemente to downtown Los Angeles in a convertible on the freeway!

From digging through bolts of fabric and mountains of zippers to watching the pieces being sewn in the downtown Los Angeles factory, it was all documented in moving pictures to show the care and personal touch that is put into the making of a Seea suit—the swimsuit version of the farm-to-table method. Proudly made in the U.S.A.

Check out the video filmed by Chris Steblay of the Seeworthy Project and be inspired to make something, and then have fun surfing in it!
