Sampling made Easy
Step 1. Handover
To get you started, all we require are your designs sent via email, as screen shots, photographs, tech packs, or as the real samples, via courier.
You may send us any design from any web site, with any changes noted. If we manufacture that brands designs, then we will inform you. The law states that any design cannot be identical or substantially similar to any other design previously disclosed anywhere. If this is the case you will have to either make several changes, or offer us another design to price.
Step 2. Selecting your fabrics
The fabrics you choose, either our Italian Stock or Fabrics to be imported will affect your bulk order time-line as well as the number of pieces you will have to add per colour or print. Stock fabrics can be selected in 20 meters lots, allowing more colours to be added. Imported colours come in 70 meter lots, so possibly less colours can be added. This is always your choice & critical to be clear before you start. Consider what you will order when it comes to your top-up orders. Imported colours will take more time to produce & your be adding less colours.
Italian stocks MOQ 20m per colour, 4 weeks to manufacturer. Approx. 60 pieces per colour. Fabrics to be Imported MOQ 70m per colour, add 4-5 weeks to import. Approx. 200 pieces per colour.
Start-up brands most commonly select from our stocks. Established brands normally request imported or a mix of both.
If your requesting prints, we are the only manufacturer in Bali offering digital print options on recycled Nylon. Other suppliers can will offer you a print on Polyester via sublimation, a process of heat press onto fabric. Read more about the Pros & Cons of Digital & Sublimation print in our Print Section

All Custom Designs will be digitally drawn & graded using 2D Auto-CAD software. This is far superior to paper patterns, ensuring perfect fits following our size chart. You may request to grade up or down, depending your market. Some brands cut more cheeky, Australia & Californian for example, & some request more coverage like UK & some Scandic brands. This is totally in your control & choice.
