SPOTLIGHT ON MOLLUSK August 02 2016
John McCambridge at the shop
Artist and surfer John McCambridge and artist Johanna St. Clair opened Mollusk in 2005, with some help from their artist and surfer friends, in the then sleepy area of Ocean Beach in San Francisco. They started by selling t-shirts and hand shaped surfboards and eventually grew into a full apparel and surfboard operation. They eventually opened retail spaces in Venice and Silver Lake and continue to make it a priority to produce their goods in the USA, which we love.
Johanna St. Clair and Nina
On any given day they have events at their shop from art installations/openings to slide shows to music performances because John believes that it's important to have a communal environment, much like the surf shops that he grew up going to. Joanna creates a lot of the graphics that you find on their tees and Nina, their 9 year old daughter, can sometimes be found folding shirts at their Ocean location for $10 an hr. It's a family affair and a community space as much as it is a retail space, and keeping things fun is a big part of Mollusk's success as a brand.
