Fabrics to be imported
As we are the only tax-free bonded company in Bali, meaning only we can import premium grade recycled Italian & American Lycra, close to factory prices. All others pay the hefty 40% tax on import of their fabrics into Indonesia. These cost eventually end up as higher garment prices, making your purchase order landed costs to your country way higher than you ever thought possible. Beware, check at start.
We import from Carvico in Italy & REPREVE in the US with weekly flights. Any orders you place with us will be added to these flights, as soon as your invoice is paid. Flights now take two weeks instead of one, so add a week or two to your timeline.
Importing Sample meters – 2 meters per colour or print
Carvico will supply colours we don’t hold in stock in 2-meter sections ideal for sampling. Repreve does not offer sample meters, so if they are not in our stocks, then you have to work from the colour card, or select your fabrics from Carvico.
Nylon – We print digitally in China using Italian digital print machines & American Huntsman Eco dyes. Allow 3 weeks to land.
Polyester – We print in Bali on Italian Vita PL for Swimwear & Eco Olympus for Activewear via sublimation print. Max 3 working days.
Importing production fabrics – 70 meters roll based per colour or print.
As soon as deposit has been paid, any fabrics not held in stock will be imported. Allow 3 – 4 weeks to land.
Mixing plain colours. The trend right now is to mix several colours in one bikini. You should be aware that all fabrics, naturals & synthetics can bleed if left damp for any period of time. This is not a common issue for us, but it can occur. We can advise you on best strategy should this point pertain to you.
