Be ethical

 

Find peace of mind knowing that your garments are designed, cut, and sewn locally. We’ve reduced our clothing kilometres by housing our entire team (including distribution) under the one roof.

 

We are proud to say that our factory meets all Australian standards for ethical clothing manufacture.


 

Be sustainable

 

d+k headquarters sustainably manufactures its own energy needs - in fact last year we generated more power than we used! Any excess electricity we generate is fed straight back into the grid.

 

Where we aren’t able to reduce or reuse - we recycle! Our headquarters has recycling processes set in place for everything from pattern-making paper to the coffee pods that power our staff.

 

Our leftover scrap fabric is always repurposed. We use it in our sampling department, in manufacturing to test the sewing machines before use, or sent to local Tafes for use by design students.

 

We are currently working on a project to ensure even more of our scrap can be used within garments… stay tuned!


 

Be environmentally responsible

 

d+k has chosen to invest in the latest and most innovative technology to ensure we stay ahead of the game.

 

Our fabric cutting machine is designed to reduce power consumption and remain reliably environmentally friendly. Multiple garments are meshed into the one cut, so that there is minimal wastage on larger panels.


 

Don’t settle for anything less than the best. Be you. Be d+k.
