SEPTEMBER was created by Erika Seiko Togashi, a designer from New York City with a love and passion for surfing. The idea came to life in Bali, while living and surfing its tropical coasts. She noticed a lack of timeless, elegant and sustainable surf & swimwear in the industry.
SEPTEMBER suits are designed for functionality and durability with a focus on fit, color, and sustainable materials . Modern, sustainable surf swimwear for all, swimsuits that withstand the test of time, and the ocean. SEPTEMBER’s vision is to promote body positivity and serve as “Every woman’s first choice for confident and comfortable swimwear.”
Sustainability is at the core of SEPTEMBER. Their swimsuits are hand made using their signature luxury fabric sourced from Italy. Their fabrics are recycled and made from 78% ECONYL® regenerated nylon and 22% elastane, which comes from pre and post industrial waste such as ghost fishing nets and carpet fluff. The yarns can be infinitely recycled, supporting the vision of a circular fashion industry. They run small batch production at a female owned factory in Bali putting quality over quantity. SEPTEMBER is sustainable and environmentally driven in all business decisions - materials, trims, factory, retailers and even brand location. Designed in New York City. Tested in Bali.
