All you see on Tiktok and youtube these days is people finding DUPES, knockoffs and copies of popular activewear brands. While dupes of activewear may offer a cheaper alternative to high-quality brands, they often sacrifice quality, design, and ethics.
As a woman who loves to workout, you know that the right activewear can make all the difference. But have you thought about the benefits of investing in Australian made activewear? Not only does it support local businesses and the environment, but it also offers many advantages over cheaper, mass-produced options.
1. Quality and Durability
When you buy Australian made activewear, you're investing in quality and durability. Mass produced activewear brands reduce their costs by using cheaper low quality materials that are not as durable which also affects comfort and fit. Paris & I activewear is made from high-quality fabrics that are designed to withstand even the toughest workouts. You won't have to worry about sagging, stretching, or fading, so you can wear your Paris & I pieces for years to come.

By investing in Australian made activewear, you have access to unique and innovative designs that you won't find anywhere else.

3. Ethics & Sustainability
Mass produced activewear brands may prioritise profit over ethical and sustainable manufacturing practices. Whereas, Here at Paris & I, we believe in sustainability and ethical practices. Being Australian made means that manufacturers must comply with the strict labour laws, which ensures workers are treated fairly and ethically. Furthermore, the Australian Government has implemented strict regulations to reduce the impact of manufacturing on the environment. Australian manufacturers must use production methods that reduce their environmental footprint. You can feel good about your purchase knowing that you're supporting a brand that cares about the environment and its workers.
4. Comfort and Style
Paris & I is not trend-driven, what exactly does this mean? Well here at Paris & I, we don't do crazy out there prints as they may go out of style quickly and become less desirable, leading to overproduction and waste. Not only is our Australian made activewear sustainable and durable, but it's also comfortable and stylish.
