TERUO is a creative lifestyle clothing brand inspired by Teruo Iyama, who despite being incarcerated by the U.S. during World War II as a U.S. citizen, became a successful artist and entrepreneur. TERUO embodies this spirit to create something from nothing—by any dreams necessary.
Teruo's grandson, Timothy Teruo Watters, carries on the family tradition of creativity. Inspired by music, nature, and pride for one's roots, Timothy's artwork and designs are featured on every Teruo tee. From the classic Mic Roots shirt to the iconic Golden Gate Fog shirt, TERUO has been creating meaningful clothing since 1999.
