Bob Marley fans can embrace the summer weather with a new collaboration that features beach-ready accessories inspired by the late singer. Lifestyle brand Slowtide has partnered with the Marley family to release an exclusive collection featuring towels, blankets and even apparel that’ll help you channel the “Redemption” singer into your beach lounging.

Hot off the heels of the biopic One Love, the new collection aims to continue honoring Marley’s legacy with an officially-licensed collaboration. Unlike your typical beach towels and picnic blankets, the Marley collection spotlights patterns inspired by the “Three Little Birds” singer while also utilizing iconic pictures and motifs from the reggae icon’s legendary career.

Expect sand-resistant materials and oversized lengths that are perfect for laying out with friends or solo park hangs. There’s plenty of room to lay out on, with enough room leftover to place your portable cooler or latest musician memoir.

To help you pick out the best of the Slowtide x Bob Marley collection, ShopBillboard put together a few of the most popular styles below.
