From our genesis, we set out to preserve the earth for future generations by being the most sustainable sportswear company in existence. Our unwavering passion for a more sustainable future has only grown.
Every garment we have ever created has been crafted with the most sustainable materials and technologies, including recycled yarns, non-dying & biodegradation. Complete with traceability. No exceptions.
To do this while creating genuinely world-leading products in performance is our mission. Advancing technical performance attributes in a way that has never been seen before. We engineer every one of our fabrics, meticulously selecting the finest filaments & yarns and collaborating with the best minds in the industry.
We are uncompromising in our pursuit; every day, we long to push the boundaries and take new strides ahead.
Designed to perform. Designed to preserve.

The scientific community has taken an unwavering approach to conclude that many aspects of sporting compression are unproven. Pressio as a brand does not disregard this notion. The fact is that most compression garments are not made of true compression materials and apply the name merely to market the product. Furthermore, most studies were using sub-optimal compression pieces and did not meet the parameters which we, as a brand, see as critical.
In our 20 years of research which included working with some of the world's largest sporting testing labs, over 90% of compression brands were found not to have a graduated profile. In addition, 50% were found not to have the power that is needed to achieve true benefits. This is only the start. Our garments are made for sport, as there is no point in having sporting apparel that restricts movement and produces excess heat. We found the true art to be in the manufacturing process, meeting the graduated fit and power profile in a way that will add to the athlete's comfort. We are in the unique position of being able to achieve this equilibrium.
In all studies we have undertaken throughout the testing of compression garments, we have results that prove our claims are reliable and valid. As a brand, we are in our infancy. However, we have the world's leading team in developing compression and sporting technology. Our teams have produced compression fabrications and finished garments similar to parameters (and exceeding) successful studies, validating our claims.
Our claims include:
Research is a fundamental aspect of Pressio product development. We understand how to build world-leading fabrications and construct them into unique products. The final step is independent validation.
Our key research partner is La Trobe University in Melbourne, Australia. La Trobe is heavily invested in performance sport and research by developing their $90 Million dollar Sports Park. In their cutting-edge Sports Park facility and labs, innovation in physiology, biomechanics, strength and conditioning, and rehabilitation of the athletes are at the centre of their focus. Leading our research partnership at La Trobe University is Associate Professor Matt Driller and Dr. Lachlan James. Associate Professor Driller is one of the most published researchers in the field of compression garments for athletes. He has worked alongside some of the world's most well-known compression brands and has >10 years' experience as a recovery specialist with elite athletes. Dr. James is a researcher and lecturer with a focus on strength-power assessment and development. Dr. James has 10 years of strength and conditioning, and applied sports science industry experience.
Associate Professor Driller and Dr. James supervise Ph.D. scholar, Alana Leabeater, whose role is fully dedicated to researching the effects of compression garments on different aspects of human physiology, biomechanics, and performance. The La Trobe research team are working in close collaboration with Pressio to understand and validate the effects compression has on athletes and contribute to the development and design of our products to ensure our compression garments remain evidence-based. Our team has already started working alongside the team at La Trobe University, commencing a long-term partnership, leading to the scientific backing of what will be the world's most advanced compression fabrication.
The La Trobe University research team are currently engaged in several projects with Pressio to understand further and validate the effects compression has on human performance. Our team has already started working alongside the team at La Trobe University, commencing a long-term partnership, leading to the scientific backing of what will be the world's most advanced compression fabrication. Some of the current and future areas of study include:
Here at Pressio, we know compression is one of the key aspects of athletic improvement. We desire to further cement this in the eyes of the consumer and academic establishments.
WE EXIST TO ELEVATE ATHLETES AROUND THE WORLD GOING BEYOND JUST SUPERIOR PERFORMANCE.
OUR MISSION IS TO REDEFINE THE STANDARD OF PERFORMANCE WEAR. TO ENGINEER THE MOST ADVANCED SPORTS FABRIC TECHNOLOGIES ON THE PLANET. WE DESIGN OUR PRODUCTS TO ACCOMPLISH WHAT HAS NOT YET BEEN ACHIEVED WITH SOPHISTICATED PRODUCT KNOWLEDGE AND DESIGN.
WE SEEK TO INSPIRE CHANGE THROUGH OUR UNCOMPROMISED PASSION AND PURSUIT FOR A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE. OUR WING - SYMBOLISES OUR COMMITMENT AND PROMISE TO THOSE WHO WEAR IT.
