#1 Eco-Friendly Swim, Active, Ladies & Athleisure


For 30 years we have been offering advice on how to manufacture clothing in an Eco-friendly sustainable manner. Every month we are assisting around 30 new start-ups & running brands to get started in a more sustainable ethical manner maintaining a high-grade export quality product.

We are constantly seeking new ways to reduce our carbon footprint & introduce new innovative techniques into the manufacturing process as well as new recycled fabrics.



ETHICS


King Trading is the only Company in Bali to own an exemption certificate against taxes & duties payable on the import of fabrics to the export of clothing.

We were awarded the exemption by the Government of Indonesia as we comply to all manpower regulation, paying our employees well over the minimum wage, offering all employees free medical insurance against doctor’s fees & medicine for themselves, spouse & up to three children.


“Owning the only tax-free license in Bali, means our fabric costs are approx. half the landed price of any other manufacturer on the Island. This results in our company being by far the cheapest supplier for premium grade Swim & Activewear on the island”

‘An estimated 7 billion kilos of plastic are discarded into our oceans, every year’



“We use only ECO dyes & pack your products using Bio-Degradable packaging”


Each year, an estimated 1 trillion plastic bags are consumed worldwide. We consider using Avani’s cassava-based biodegradable bags as one of the solutions to mitigate this horrible worldwide epidemic. Avani bags are a bio-based alternative to using petroleum-based plastic bags.

THE FOUNDER


30 years ago, in 1989, Steve Martin landed in Bali searching for an environmentally friendly way to produce his ladies’ fashion brand, Hippi Chic London.

Within three months he had made a collection of patchwork clothing & started selling to retailers across the UK. Four years on, Steve was wholesaling to over 120 stores across UK & EU to such outlets as Harrods & Top Shop.
