Italian & American Recycled Fabrics
In-Stock/To Order

All fabrics in our stocks & fabrics to be imported section are premium grade, mostly recycled & eco-sustainable upcycled from the sea from fishing nets & other post-consumer waste such as plastic bottles & the like, which meaning at the end of their useful life, instead of being disposed of in a landfill, are recovered and regenerated. All dyes used are Eco-friendly coming from Huntsman Dyes in the US

We import fabrics via weekly flights from Carvico in Italy & REPREVE in the US under our tax-free exemption certificate, saving 40% on landed fabric costs.

We maintain our stock levels at 30,000 meters in approx. 65 colours. They are not leftovers.

  • The price for our stock fabrics & imported fabrics is the same. In most cases, our imported fabrics are cheaper than local Bali Swim fabrics.
  • We attach free branded fabric hang-tags to all swim & activewear produced using stock & imported fabrics. This allows your buyers to know the quality & attributes of the fabric used in your products.

Swim & Activewear Fabric Swatch Packs

We have assembled 2 fabric swatch packs, one swatch of each of the imported fabrics displayed on our websites, swimwearbali.com & activewearbali.com, including their corresponding laser-copy colour cards, a great way to know the colours & textures.

For print purposes, we have added a swatch of REPREVE Hawaii digital print as well as Vita PL sublimation print to allow you to see & feel the difference in the texture & quality of print.
You can see an example here

USD 50 – 1 Swim or 1 Activewear pack
USD 80 – 1 Swim + 1 Activewear pack

Delivered to your door via FedEx, max 7 working days.

Simply email informing us of the pack/s you’re seeking, with your name, email, phone number, address, postcode & we’ll send you an invoice.
Men on either “Swim” or “Active” or “Swim & Active” In the email header.

Fabric swatches come in random colours. We are not a fabric supplier & therefore do not accept requests for specific colours. If we have some to hand, we may be able to assist.

NOTES

  • Reversible/Colour blocks. All fabrics, even synthetics may bleed if left damp. We advise selecting colours to keep pastels & darks separate. We can assist on request.
  • Bali swim fabrics are not supplied with branded fabric hang-tags & quality cannot be guaranteed. Colours are often out of stock as imported via sea. We import via air.
  • Carvico offers sample meters which we import in 2m sections, Repreve Tahiti from the US does not. Therefore, if the colours are not in our stocks, most commonly customers work with plain fabrics from Carvico & digital prints from Repreve.
  • Timelines quoted are dependent on the volume of orders as well as National holidays & Government enforced restrictions.

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.
NEW IN. We now offer this amazing recycled fabric from Carvico named Pantelleria as well as Ibiza also in stock.

Sampling Fabrics – No MOQ

Production Fabrics – MOQ 20m per colour. This allows you to select a good range of colours as well as able to manufacturer your orders the moment any slot in our production facility, becomes available.

  • 20m produces on average 70 tops or bottoms or 35 Bikini sets

 

TOP TIP

Please take careful consideration when selecting your fabrics & colours. The most important decision you will make will be whether you’re selecting your colours from our stocks or requesting them to be imported, roll-based. This affects timelines in production & the number of units you must place in your bulk PO.

 

Take Careful Note

If you’re requesting colours not in stock to be imported, then they are purchased in 70m lots & must be used up entirely in your production PO. + 3-4 weeks to import.

Selecting Fabrics to be Imported

Fabrics are imported via weekly flights roll based per colour in 70-meter lots. Some start-up bands consider 70m to be too much to start with as it produces 200 bikini tops/bottoms or 100 Bikini sets per colour.

For more established brands or once your start-up starts rolling with more orders then selecting colours to be imported becomes, much more workable. Bigger brands with bigger budgets commonly request their colours to be imported.

Sampling Fabrics – Imported in 2m sections. The same applies to digital prints – 3-4 weeks to import.

Production Fabrics – MOQ 70m per colour & used entirely in production – 3-4 weeks to import.

Selecting Local Bali Swim Fabrics

(subject to availability)

As we are the sole owners of an exemption certificate on tax on the import of fabrics means our premium grade imported Italian & American recycled fabrics, costing less than local Bali Swim fabrics which have been imported paying the hefty 40% tax on import.

This results in local fabrics costing the same or even more than our imported premium grade fabrics. I trust this explains why it is that we will offer you prices adding imported fabrics at prices lower than others using lower grade local fabrics.
