Sustainable, Eco-friendly, Recycled from fishing nets & post consumer waste
Recycled Sustainable Fabrics
King Trading is the largest importer of recycled, sustainable fabrics in Bali. If you’re requesting sustainable imported fabrics, then you’ll find our prices the same or even lower than other suppliers in Bali will offer. We are the only Company in Bali able to import fabrics under a Tax exemption certificate, saving 40% on your production costs.
We import fabrics upcycled from either reclaimed fishing nets or post-consumer waste such as discarded plastic bottles.
Every part of our supply chain is geared towards being as environmentally friendly as possible. In the words of Kelly Slater, 11 times world champion surfer, “By collecting fishing nets that are then used to produce ECONYL® regenerated Nylon products, we lessen our environmental impact while also cleaning up the oceans we love so much”.
ECONYL® is the reclaimed Nylon used in all of the Italian fabrics we import or hold in stock.
We work with two producers: Carvico in Italy and REPREVE in the US.
See the colours and read more on our Fabric Page.
Below, we have linked our two major suppliers and the fabrics we can incorporate into your collections.

ECONYL® is regenerated Nylon from salvaged fishing nets, the leading, most trusted, branded performance fibre available today.
For every 1.000 tons of ECONYL® Raw material used, we save 7.000 barrels of crude oil and avoid 6,500 tons of C2 eq.
Ghost Fishing is a term used when fishing gear has been lost, dumped or abandoned.
Once discarded, they catch & kill marine life, attracting more marine life, creating a vicious circle that could last for thousands of years. Nobody knows the life of Nylon once discarded in the ocean.
