The Saltwater Born Story
Saltwater Born is a family-owned business. Our family has lived in Florida near the water for the last two decades. In 2018, while in college, Jack Kempton decided to start Saltwater Born. The idea behind Saltwater Born was to create cool, active gear that we would wear while fishing, diving, boating, or swimming. We wanted to make high-quality, sun-protected shirts for in-the-water play and also comfortable, casual clothes for off-the-water activities. Our family and friends love the coastal lifestyle and our designs reflect this.
Saltwater Born is for everybody. It’s for anyone and everyone who loves being around the water. You don’t have to be a hardcore fisherman or diver to wear our gear. If you love living or playing in the sun, sand, and saltwater our company is for you. Our goal is to create quality, coastal-inspired, comfortable clothes and accessories. We hope you love them as much as we do.
