If you selected fabrics to be imported then your need to add 4 weeks to your production time line.

We hold the largest stocks in Bali of Italian recycled fabrics, approx. 15,000m in several fabrics across 40 colours. They are not left-overs, these are imported from Italy roll based, constantly topped up as we cut & sew.

Similar in feel & construction to Italian fabrics, & available in 25 deep rich Nylon matt colours. Finally, a textured fabric named Geo-Wave available in black & ivory & matching fabric lining.

Selecting from stocks allows you to choose your colours in 20m lots. This can often mean that you can add more colours to your orders than if selecting fabrics to be imported. Lead time from PO - 4 weeks goods ready to uplift to any overseas port.
