Hot Sauce is that spicy stuff you put on your wings.
Hot Source is where kiwi businesses go to get stuff made.

NZ is full of clever folks with bright ideas. So, we created a product sourcing hub that's tailor-made for the small business, the startup, and the eCom entrepreneur.

With specialist teams on the ground in Auckland, China, and throughout Asia, you'll be tapping into an expert sourcing ecosystem that's ready to roll.

We take care of the niggly sourcing stuff, so you can get back to doing what you do best; growing your business.


Oh, and we’re saving our clients up to 77% on their orders.

Activewear trends 2022

What’s hot in the activewear industry this year.


The activewear industry is booming, and athleisure is leading the way. So, what is athleisure? It’s clothing you want to wear on your commute, to the gym, and when you’re out-and-about. It’s multifunctional, durable but comfortable, and of course… super stylish.

Seamless activewear

Seamless activewear is having a big moment right now. Innovative manufacturing techniques have enabled activewear brands to hide the seam, or remove it altogether. It’s not all about the look either, seamless clothing can significantly improve functionality and durability.

Smart clothing

If you want to get creative with your activewear brand, make it smart. Haptic feedback is being used in the industry and the results are very interesting. Think yoga pants that tell you when your downward dog is dodgy, the Tesla Suit, and socks that monitor your running technique.

Sustainable materials

Consumers are increasingly conscious of what their clothing is made out of. Organic cotton, recycled polyester, and non-toxic dyes are just some of the sustainable materials gaining in popularity across the industry. Helping businesses make sustainability a part of their brand is one of our core objectives at Epic.



Remember when every piece of gym clothing was steel grey, white, or black? Why so serious? The modern activewear consumer is fashion conscious, and bland just doesn’t cut it. Bright colours are in.
