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.

 

 

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 Bold. Be Brave. Be You.

Be Different: Choose Sustainable Activewear

Many of us don’t really give a thought to how our activewear was produced. As long as it looks good, performs well and lasts, we’re satisfied with our purchases. But what if you could buy high-quality, high-performance workout clothing that meets all Australian standards for ethical clothing manufacturing?

At d+k, we produce a range of sustainable activewear from our manufacturing facility in Brisbane. All our garments are designed, manufactured and shipped Australia wide by our committed d+k team in a purpose-built facility that even generates its own power! We’ve invested in the latest technology to give you some of the best quality activewear on the market and recycle and repurpose any surplus materials whenever possible. This means that we control the quality of our products and we control the manufacturing conditions, and we believe that’s what makes us a leading supplier of Australian made ethical activewear.

Sustainable Workout Clothing for Every Activity

Whether you’re a runner, a gym bunny, a yogi or you just prefer to wear activewear as leisurewear; you’ll find an exciting range of workout clothing in our online store. We have garments to suit every body, shape and size and offer everything from sustainable leggings, pants, tops and jackets to sustainable yoga clothes.

We understand how the body moves and what makes a good piece of activewear so whether you’re choosing a pair of leggings that will stay put and stay opaque while you squat or you want a top that won’t ride up when you’re performing a downward facing dog, you’ll find your perfect piece of activewear in our online store.

Our Sustainable Workout Clothes are Designed with YOU in Mind

While our business is built on sustainability, we wouldn’t get far if our clothes weren’t fit for purpose. And that’s why we manufacture our garments from high-quality technical fabrics that move and breathe with you like a second skin.

But more than this, we believe that being active and having suitable clothing for all kinds of activities should be accessible to everyone, no matter what your body shape or size. So, when you shop at d+k, you’ll find designs that will help to boost your confidence, love the body you’re in and engage in activities with an enthusiasm that comes from feeling stylish and comfortable.

We’re all about being inclusive and that’s why we’ve extended our range to include styles to accommodate growing baby bumps – we believe you shouldn’t stop exercising just because you’re pregnant or because you can’t find suitable pregnancy activewear!

Activewear With a Conscience

Yes, we know that it’s possible to buy cheap activewear in Australia. But more times than not, those garments have been made halfway around the world with cheap labour and then flown all the way here for our consumption.

It’s time to become more responsible about the purchases we make – and that starts by purchasing goods made in Australia. So the next time you need new activewear, place an order with us and do your little bit for the environment.

Be Bold. Be Brave. Be You and be ethical in d+k Australian made sustainable activewear.
