The Art of Tommy Bahama
AUTHENTIC ARTISTS, ONE-OF-A-KIND PRINTS
Carefully printed, gorgeously detailed fabrics are a Tommy Bahama hallmark, and have been since our founding in 1993. Some of these prints spring from collaborations with renowned textile artists, but most have their origins in our in-house art department: a team of 10 designers who paint and draw these works of art by hand, using watercolors, acrylics, charcoal, and ink.
Inspiration for these prints often comes from the tropics: colorful birds, island foliage and flowers, tiki and surf elements. This spring, we looked to the classic resort town of Saint-Tropez. This Cote d'Azur destination inspired the signature print you see above. It's a traditional French toile print, a patterned fabric that tells a story of life as it should be lived, through the eyes of Tommy Bahama.
