Kisaiya/ Ki5-A is known for designing activewear that can seamlessly transition throughout the different phases of one’s day, making their products exclusive and irresistible to those who want to make a statement in their active-wear, be that during practice or post class when you’re out & about. New products are released throughout the year [even within a season] keeping you always up-to-date with the latest fitness trends. All production processes are sweatshop-free & we are always looking for ways to make our business more sustainable & Earth friendly. The name Kisaiya was chosen because it simply means ‘Full of Life’, just as happiness & fulfilment are essential to leading a Full Life, the founders of Kisaiya believe good quality clothing that performs is a bare necessity in the fitness world.
