In the late 1950s, Nancy and Walter Katin were in the business of making canvas boat covers. Yet one day a young man came into the Katin's shop in Surfside, California, complaining of the difficulty in finding a pair of swim shorts durable enough to stand up to the then-new pastime of surfboard riding. Walter used his sewing machine and some of the sturdy boat canvas previously used for boat covers and created the first pair of Kanvas by Katin surf trunks.

Since then, Katin has kept the original spirit of the sixties, and continue to produce boardshorts that became true classics.

Last year, Katin began a successful collaboration with Apolis Activism.

Check out this beautiful chambray swim trunk, produced in limited edition, from the 2010 collection !
