Be bold and break a sweat in ethical activewear from Queensland’s own d+k
When it comes to a trend, activewear is one we will gladly endorse – what’s not to love about functional clothes that promote a healthy lifestyle? Unfortunately a rise in popularity usually comes with an oversaturated market – which means sifting through a bunch of poorly made products made in dingy factories with an absurdly high mark-up. If you’ve been chasing a brand that covers the bases of looking great, staying ethically sound and keeping you comfortable, your search is over – d+k is the homegrown activewear phenomenon that you need to get around.
d+k is the brainchild of Queensland native Danielle Larkin, who at just 27 years old has already forged a serious name for herself in the competitive activewear market. While she has nailed the style and function elements, it is Danielle’s points of difference that have really set d+k apart from its peers. First and foremost, the brand’s line is produced, designed and delivered entirely from the one Queensland-based warehouse. A small but dedicated team oversee all of the productions to keep the in-house process running at the highest standard.
Quality wasn’t the only reason that Danielle decided to keep the d+k brand an Australian production – she is also committed to making the brand as ethical and sustainable as possible. High-quality fabrics like Italian lyrca and organic bamboo have been incorporated into the brand’s range, as well as recycled elements where possible. The ethics certainly don’t take a backseat to the brand’s form and functionality, with each piece tried and tested before it makes it to market. All the good stuff like moisture wicking, quick dry, stretch technology, ultra-breathability, muscular support and UV protection have been integrated into designs, meaning everybody (and every body) is catered to.
