Swimwear Fabrics

Almost all of the Swimwear Fabrics we incorporate into our production chain are now Eco-Friendly, Recycled, Sustainable and OEKO-TEX® Certified.

Nylon comes from discarded fishing nets or post-consumer waste, protecting countless marine life like dolphins, turtles and even whales. Polyester comes from plastic bottles that have been discarded into our oceans, salvaged and upcycled into new Swimwear Fabric.

Tax-Free Imports

The Government of Indonesia awarded us a Tax-Free Status on the Swimwear Fabrics that we import, saving us and you 40% on your production costs. We are the only Co. in Bali granted this exemption making our prices the lowest you will find in Bali for a premium quality product.

Read more on our Tax-Free status.

Swim and Activewear Packs

We have assembled a swatch pack with one swatch of each of the Fabrics displayed on our website and their corresponding laser-copy colour cards. As well as a digital and sublimation printed swatch to compare the difference in print quality.

USD 50 – 1 Swim or 1 Activewear pack.
USD 80 – 1 Swim + 1 Activewear pack.
Delivered to your door via FedEx, 4-10 working days.

To order a pack, email us and inform the pack/s you want to be sent.

In your email, add the words “Swim” or “Active” or “Swim and Active” to the header and inc your name, phone number, address, postcode.

  • We include one real swatch of each Fabric on our site, not one of each colour.
  • Take note that viewing different devices such as Mac, PC, Android etc., will show different hues of the actual colour. Purchasing a Starter Pack or Fabric Pack as above will allow you to feel the texture with the laser copy colour cards in your hands.

Selecting Fabrics

Italian Carvico Vita Nylon– 190 gsm Matte

Vita is the most selected fabric for plain coloured Swimwear, made using ECONYL Yarn which has been salvaged from discarded fishing nets & other post-consumer waste.

Available in plain colours only.

American REPREVE Hawaii Nylon – 210 gsm Matte

Suitable for digital prints.

As we print overseas, allow 3-4 weeks for a strike-off sample as well as production orders.

Amercian REPREVE Tahiti Nylon – 200gsm Matte

Available in plain colours only.

Italian Carvico Vita PL (Poly) – 190gsm Matte

As we can print in Bali on Polyester only (there are no digital synthetic print machines in Bali), an ideal fabric should be in a hurry. Max 3 working days samples or bulk orders.

Available for sublimation prints only.

Branded HangTags

We import branded Hangtags corresponding to the fabrics you requested in production & add to each article of swimwear prior to packaging.

ECONYL Tags
ECONYL is a recycled yarn supplier that Carvico uses in its production. They require that you contact them to verify who you are before we can request their tags.

Mixing Tones

When requesting panels of different shades, be aware that synthetics do occasionally bleed if left damp for any period of time. Do inform your clients not to leave their swimmers damp & rinse with cool water as soon as possible after use.

Our advice is not to mix pastel & dark colours & we can advise you on request the colours that do & do not work well together.

See our washing instructions in the Size Guide.

Selecting from our Stocks

We hold the best-selling colours of the season in stock, occasionally removing some & adding new ones as they are released. Stock levels are maintained at 30,000m in approx. 65 blends. All are freshly imported as we cut production. They are not leftovers.

Grow Organically
If you select from our stocks, we can move faster; meaning should any slot come up in production, your bulk order will be cut & moved directly into sewing. The same also applies to reorders or top-ups.

Sampling  – No MOQ.

Production – MOQ 20m per colour,  allowing you to add more colours to your PO, & also allows us to manufacture your PO when any slot becomes available. 

  • 20m produces approx. 70 tops or bottoms or 35 Bikini sets.

Selecting to be Imported

All are purchased roll based in 70m lots. Some start-up bands consider this to be too much, so select from our stocks.

More established brands most commonly request we fly them in roll based.

Sampling in plain or print, not held in stock, will be imported in 2m sections + 3-4 weeks.

Production – MOQ 70m per colour & must be used entirely in production + 3-4 weeks to land.

  • 70m produces approx. 200 bikini tops or bottoms or 100 Bikini sets.

Note
If you’re requesting plain or prints, best contact us prior to your actual PO. We will discuss the best plan of action for faster production.

Selecting Local Bali Swim Fabrics

In the main, local Bali Swim Fabrics are copies of higher-grade imported ones.

In some cases, local suppliers in Bali print their own Tags and claim they are selling fabrics blended using REPREVE Yarns, when in fact they are not, so beware.

Local Bali Swim Fabrics are freely available from Parama Textiles in Denpasar, a local Retail outlet. Any request, we can accommodate.
