To provide you with yoga and activewear clothing to keep you comfortable, active and looking good whatever your Dharma, whilst ensuring we respect, honour and do not hinder the Dharma of others in this process.
Dharma Bums was born when I found and embraced my own Dharma of practicing and teaching yoga 5 years ago and combined this with my passion and experience in the fashion industry.
One of the key drivers in launching the brand was my frustration that the clothes I wore to practice yoga were not often made in the tenants of the yoga teachings. I have spent many years working in fashion buying and merchandising traveling the world visiting factories where many of the garments are made. I have witnessed the long working hours, the poor conditions and the low pay. I wanted to create a brand that did not participate in unfair treatment of others, giving people the choice to shop more consciously.
Dharma Bums aims to provide a beautifully designed yoga and activewear collection that can take you effortlessly from the studio to the street. The design and the print of the garment offers the versatility of being perfect as an activewear garment whilst looking equally as stylish when worn off the mat as street wear.
All Dharma Bums clothing is designed, printed and made here in Australia, close to the home of the head office. By working closely with our partners in the supplier chain we are able this ensure ethical and fair working conditions to all those involved in helping us bring the product to you.
We believe that given the choice people will choose to support a company that shares their values and helps create a difference. We aim to offer you that choice.
