About Kusaga Athletic

Kusaga Athletic has reimagined the textile industry through the development of their revolutionary sustainable fabrics. Fabrics that use less water, are compostable, bio-degradable and importantly, planet friendly. Fabrics that help save the world we love.

The company’s values stem from the desire to find simple ways to help mitigate climate change. As athletes who use the world as their outdoor gym, the co-founders went back to basics. They discovered it takes more than 3000 litres of water to produce a standard cotton t-shirt and decided there had to be a better way.

Their unique plant-based fabrics have remarkable breathability and durability, and use a fraction of the water of cotton and polyester.

From the fabric comes high performance sports apparel for people who have one eye on the environment and one eye on the road ahead.

Kusaga Athletic’s approach is nature-first combined with a focus on design to deliver the performance an athlete deserves.

We know people care about the planet and want to make choices with positive impact. Being a B Corp business makes it clear to our customers they are buying products that help them do just that.

Our range of sportswear and activewear is not just revolutionary, and amazingly comfortable, it reflects our commitment to create a better world for future generations.

If not us, then who?

The Change We Seek®

The philosophy is straightforward – if you love the world you live in, do something to save it.

The company represents a new breed of environmental innovation. With strong partners and a clear vision for the future comes the freedom to dream big without the shackles of the industry past.

Kusaga Athletic is all about creating positive change through everyday clothing choices. They looked beyond recycle, beyond organic. Their sustainable fabrics are the new cotton and polyester – for people who want a better product that’s better for the environment.
