On average 10 styles bikini cost a little more around 600 usd all in inc fabric & make up

Do you work Ethically & in an Environmentally friendly way?
Yes, we do. We employ around 100 full time personnel. All are entitled to join our medical insurance plan free of charge. This covers not just the person working for us, but also their spouse & up to three children. It covers all medical emergencies, doctors’ visits & prescription medicine as well as any specialist they may be told to see.
All of our employees are paid over the minimum legal wage. In the main they earn at least twice the minimum wage and in many cases much more. All receive 13 months wages a year, so a double wage once a year seen as a yearly bonus.
90% of the fabric’s used are Re-cycled & all dye stuffs are Eco-certified coming from either Germany or the US & no banned substances are used. We can supply on request the Eco-certificates should you request.
May we book a visit to your factory?
Yes, we encourage it. You will be able to see the fashion studio where the magic happens, the photo studio (free to use, just need to book), sample & production room as well as the quality control department which leads into the packing & dispatch area. There are several agents in Bali posing as factories, it may be your orders are farmed out to different factories.
May I book a Skype or phone call?
After you have received your prices you may request a phone call to clarify anything you may need to speak about. Then again, once your samples are made & ready to go, we can Skype you to view online your collection before dispatch, just to be sure all is as per your request.
Can I send you real samples?
Absolutely, the best way by far. Beware though that customs entry into Indonesia will not let pass more than 10 pieces of clothing. So keep the poly bags to max 10 pieces and also the value just under $100.00.
How long to make my sample collection?
If the fabrics you desire are here in our hands, in the right colours or prints, around 4 weeks. If they are not, then add approx. 2-4 weeks to import the fabrics. We therefore deal with your fabrics at the very start. All we need from you is your choice of fabric & what colour & everything will be a breeze.
Do I have to organize my sample fabrics from Carvico?
No, we can handle this for you. You will have been sent some colour cards via email. We need the name of the fabric and colour & the code of the colours & how many meters of each, normally 3 meters per colour to handle the sampling. For your bulk orders later on, we handle everything, fabric order, import & the making of your collection.
How long does it take to make any production order?
As we import mostly all plain fabrics from Italy & handle the digital prints overseas, & as hardware is imported, then we must start both the order of fabric & hardware at the start of things. Fabrics, plain or printed as well as any accessories, all take around four weeks to land in Bali.
Then it’s around 4-6 weeks to make your order. We will inform you before you pay your deposit, your expected date for delivery.
Why is it only King Trading can import fabric freely without any tax and duty?
Simply, we are a trusted Government approved company in Bali. This license requires that we hold every legal requirement that no other garment company in Bali holds. Some swimwear operations in Bali are using a namesake, or may work in unethical ways, so it’s well worth requesting to see their actual factory/facilities to see their operations & the quality of their ongoing work, as you can at our facility.
Our company is heavily monitored & has to abide by the laws of Indonesia to ensure we are trading ethically & honestly.
