Created in 2015 by MISS TIKIYOGI in NYC her hometown of 23years, TIKIYOGI promotes the benefits of a sustainable and healthy lifestyle. MISS TIKIYOGI knew from the beginning that she wanted to do her part in creating a more environmentally conscious world and her first step in achieving that was to bring awareness to ocean and city pollution. Starting with an expansive variety of swimwear, surf wear and yoga wear, each piece was carefully crafted in Bali out of recycled fabrics and ocean waste.
Inspired by her move to Bali in 2016 from the big city life, much of the island’s scenery and lifestyle was incorporated into the brand’s limited collections. Influenced by the people of Bali’s focus on the wellness of body and nature, TikiYogi began a focused initiative to use eco-conscious and sustainable materials and other recycled materials so that they may continue to strive for the sole use of eco-friendly products, without risking quality over mass production. Each collection is designed with a classic and timeless design and modest cut that includes; vibrant prints that mix and match, reversible bikinis, one-pieces and bodysuits, high rise bikini bottoms, eco-tights and day and night summer dresses.
The brand is leading the way by using a sustainable techno-fabric made of a ECONYL® regenerated Nylon since 2016, which turns waste into fashion. The fabric is versatile, hyper-resistant, thin, and elegant with a stretch that is soft and breathable: a unique mix of muscular compression and comfort. Thanks to its innovative construction, it is twice as resistant to chlorine and suntan creams and oils. The designs are produced in Bali where fashion house workers are paid fairly and treated equally. TIKIYOGI has reached a new milestone for swimwear and clothing. Each piece is designed and executed with a focus on finer details. With limited print collections, the brand is the top-choice of aspiring island travelers, surfers and fashion lovers.
