Catfish – Where fashion meets function

Catfish is a proudly Australian manufacture and design company that provides functional and fashionable swimwear and sportswear.

Who we are

It all started in 1986 when founder Prue Casey Spark was a pro surfer on the Women’s Surfing World Tour and wanted swimmers that both stayed on in the surf and looked good. Frustrated by the uninspiring options, she started making swimmers for herself.

By 1992, she was a mum of four and her sewing abilities came in handy making clothing and swimwear for her children. It wasn’t long before friends were ordering custom swimwear for their kids, and Prue was busy sewing in her garage in between her own kids’ sports.

The catalyst for the brand was when Mona Vale Surf Life Saving Club ordered their club swimmers, and 300 pairs of hand sewn custom swimmers, and many hours in the garage later the brand was born.

Originally from the Northern Beaches in Sydney, Catfish now supplies hundreds of clubs with swimwear and sportswear all over the world. Shipping internationally, the across the country and ship online orders to all corners of the world.

Now in its 18th year, Catfish has proven to be an industry leader in custom swimwear and sportswear for clubs across the country and a force to be reckoned with in the constantly evolving online marketplace.
