Tomo Skate Co. manifested and flourished in San Francisco, CA. The idea of Tomo Skate Co. began in 2015 when the founder, Tomoko Oikawa, wanted to create innovative grip art that she can give as gifts to her friends and San Francisco locals. Interest for her handmade grip artwork quickly grew locally, domestically, and finally internationally.
What sets Tomo Skate Co. apart from other grip companies is the fact that Tomoko diligently and independently free hands stencils and hand spray paints every single sheet herself. The company came a long way from creating hand painted grip stickers to full sheets of vivid, ingenious colorful grip.
Today we are pursuing the goal to craft more beautiful, limited sheets to share with skaters all over the world.
