dk active has always been for the people and for the planet.

Our Commitment

With our commitment to creating quality garments that support and empower, our locally produced active and leisure wear pieces replace the need to purchase ill-fitting, mass-manufactured, or wasteful clothing. Whether you’re working out or hanging out, dk active empowers you to move freely.

At dk active, we acknowledge everything that we do has an impact on our environment, our planet, and our incredible team. Therefore, our commitment is to initiate responsible business practice in everything that we do, to ensure we leave a lighter footprint on our planet. And it’s a commitment we take seriously. It’s no secret that manufacturing in Australia and competing with fast fashion brands is a challenge. It hasn’t been easy from the start, but it’s a challenge that we have welcomed, in the name of creating a better, and more sustainable product.

Working with a cradle-to-grave philosophy guarantees our sustainable design right from the outset.

The Design Process

Imagining a room full of discarded samples, fabric cut offs or ditched design? Not under this roof.

Our unsuccessful samples are always used and never thrown away. Our staff are welcome to choose from the samples to add to their own wardrobes, and the rest are gifted to organisations and charities that will best make use of them.

We do our utmost to use recycled polyester (also known as regenerated nylon) in our fabrics that require a certain level of stretch. Commitment to sustainability is paramount, so ongoing research and the continued development with our textile mills will ultimately result in a garment that withstands the test of time yet requires no virgin materials.

Change happens in the small details. Let's take a look at ours...

Plastic Free and Compostable packaging

dk active have been shipping with our custom, compostable mailers for some time now. We soon upgraded our sticky tape and shipping labels to a compostable alternative, to ensure that not only was home composting easy and straightforward for our customers, but it gives us peace of mind knowing that no elements of our packaging are adding to landfill or postconsumer waste.
