At Zonkt®️ we are passionate about being a sustainably conscious brand, providing designs that elevate our clients + colour tribe to Ditch the Ordinary! 

 

OUR ETHOS...

To ditch the ordinary and do things a little... left-of-centre.

𝗦𝗟𝗢𝗪... with all our garments being pre-order, it means we only make what you order. Slow fashion means we don’t make more than is needed, eliminates waste + ensure we can regularly release new prints.

𝗛𝗔𝗡𝗗𝗠𝗔𝗗𝗘... each + every piece is 100% handmade in Australia. All our fabric is Australian printed and hand cut, sew + sent. EVERY. SINGLE. PIECE.

𝗦𝗨𝗦𝗧𝗔𝗜𝗡𝗔𝗕𝗟𝗘... by only making apparel when it’s ordered, means there is no excess. No need to push product beyond what is wanted or need. We use recycled / renewed fabric where possible. Like our 78% recycled polyester leggings, recycled from oceanic + industrial waste plastics.
We maximize our cuts by using a mix of yardage + block printing, as well as making accessories from excess fabric, such as headbands from our sweaters.
We focus on making + using multi-directional prints to maximize pattern placement + use as much fabric in our processes as possible.
We’ve designed our accessories pieces (including for wholesale orders) to maximizing our usage to resulting in zero printed off-cut waste.
We used recycled paper + cardboard in all our packaging materials and even use mailbags that are made entirely from cornstarch!

𝗙𝗔𝗦𝗛𝗜𝗢𝗡... designed to fit real women. Not a calculated measurement. Each cut was designed by owner Kim, tested on real women, then tweaked & perfected. From sizes XS to XXL. We want to make fashion that is not a cookie cut mould or your usual, legging / sweater / top or dress.

We are all about ditching the ordinary, whether that be through our designs, our fashion or by how we impact our home, Earth.

 

OUR QUEEN...

Kim is the queen at the helm of the Zonkt®️ brand.

Kicking it off in 2013 when she took the leap to dive into design full time following a 15 year career in the financial sector.

Since then Zonkt has become a registered fashion brand + textile design studio. Providing alternative textile designs for creatives + small businesses. Parallel to their independent range of handmade women's fashion + accessory pieces.

All unique + sustainably handmade in Australia.

Kim has worked tirelessly on designing her own cuts, including her accessory pieces. Not using a calculated scale, but crafting and testing all sizes on real women.

A massive fan of stretch fabrics, Kim aims to use sustainable fabrics when accessible. Like the Econyl®️ fabric leggings, an oceanic + industrial waste recycled plastic. Labels are also printed into the waistbands and there is even a hidden affirmation inside each pair.

Through the creation of her own textile designs, Kim has worked with some amazing businesses over the years, such as… Kenzie CollectiveTop Knot GirlLittle and LuxeOwns it!Little Party Dress, Love To Dream… and many other creatives + small businesses.

Kim usually showcases her own designs on her garments, but regularly works with other Australian Textile Designers. Believing there is room for all designers. Not through competition, but by elevating each other, we can ditch the ordinary by supporting each other and show the talent that Australia has to offer when it comes to textile design and fashion.
