K-Lee Designs is a stretch wear manufacturer specialising in innovative and premium quality activewear, gymnastics wear, dancewear, leisurewear and swimwear with over 30 years' experience. Want to start your own swimwear range or activewear label? Here at K-Lee Designs we can guide you through the entire process from fabric suppliers, to labels and accessories.

The following is the manufacturing procedure we follow with you to ensure you get the perfect garment for your brand.

Design Phase

Book an initial consultation with K-Lee Designs to discuss your stretch wear vision and concepts. To prepare for your consultation bring your inspirational pictures, drawings or samples.  Then the K-Lee Designs team will guide you on your fabric selection and construction to ensure your garment is efficient and cost-effective.

Pattern Making Phase

After the design phase, your garment will start taking shape during the pattern making phase. K-Lee Designs will create a paper pattern which will serve as the foundation for a sample garment. Following the approval of the pattern, we will digitise your pattern with our in-house Style CAD to finalise the grading of your pattern.

Sampling Phase

Once your sample is ready, one of the K-Lee Designs team will contact you to arrange a progress consultation. During this time, we will require your guidance for a full review of your design, fit and size prior to commencing production. Any alterations may warrant a second sample for approval.

Cutting Phase

Afterwards, the qualified K-Lee Designs cutter will prepare and cut your fabric in-house. Our Style CAD technology ensures maximum yield during this phase.

Production Phase

Prior to the commencement of production, we will need your brand labels. Following that, K-Lee Designs will require a production deposit. Then the magic happens. We guarantee quality manufacturing with our dedicated in-house team. Note that we require minimum order quantities per size per style for production.


K-Lee Designs offers an extensive range of finishes on your garments including flat locking, Rouleau, binding, buttonholes, plain sew bind and bar tacking. We can guide you through the process of choosing the finish that suits your brand and garment best.
