Premium Grade Fabrics

We import fabrics via weekly flights under our tax-free exemption cer ficate, saving 40% on landed fabric costs. We own the only tax-free license in Bali. This allows us to price your clothing 40% lower than any other producer. Others also import fabrics but pay hefty tax & duty fees.

The MOQ for production orders using our stocks is 20m per colour.
The MOQ for production orders using fabrics to be imported is 70m per colour.

Your decision on working with our stock colours or requesting fabrics to be imported is one of the most important decisions you will make.
The majority of brands work with us from our stocks. Should they want to add colours or prints not in stock then they inform us 4 weeks prior to their actual PO.

The majority of all fabrics are purchased from Carvico in Italy & REPREVE in the US. Prints we manage in China using MS Italian Digital print machines.

We attached fee branded fabric hang-tags to all swim & activewear produced using imported fabrics, allowing your customers to know the quality of the fabric used.

Notes on Reversible/Colour blocks.
All fabrics, even synthetics can bleed if left dumper any period of time. We advise selection colours of the same family, for example, Indigo & Black. Selecting opposing colours or using any colour with white could lead to problems.
We advise on colours that work well together & those that don’t.

Selecting your fabrics & colours from Stocks

OEKO-TEX® Certified

Your decision on working with our stock fabrics or requesting fabrics to be imported is one of the most important decisions you will make. Below we outline some pros & cons.

Stocks are not left overs, they are imported in rolls via weekly flight’s the same as requests for colours we do not hold in stock. If your selecting stock fabrics you may select in in 20m lots. If you request fabrics (colours) we don’t hold in stocks then you will have to use all the 70m, making around 200 bikinis for example (100 sets)

PROS

  1. You may select in 20m lots allowing you to add more colours to your bulk PO
  2. Speed, we can start to cut the day after the bulk order has been approved.
  3. Orders will be dispatched in 4-6 weeks, in your hands in 8 weeks. *

 

CONS

  1. There may be colours you would like that we don’t carry.

 

Generally speaking, most new brands or brands testing the market desiring to grown organically select all or most of their plain colours from our stocks.

We hold around 20 – 30,000 meters of stock fabrics in approx. 59 colours ready to cut on demand. Our stocks are freshly imported rolls re-stocked as we cut production.

Fast to Market Service

We are a fast to market company producing bulk wholesale orders using our stocks in most cases in 4 – 6 weeks from your PO received.

Waiting months for a top-up order will see those all-important sales disappearing onto other brands websites. Missing inventory & waiting months to top up your website or store whether styles colours or sizes is something to be avoided at all costs. Plan well, contact us with your requests & let’s see what we can do to keep you pumping out your orders.

Fabric Packs

Having one of our fabric packs delivered to your door in most cases max 7 working days from order is a great way to actually know the textures & finishing of all the fabrics we carry. You will receive one actual fabric swatch of all fabrics show on our website, included the corresponding laser-copy colour cards.

Fabrics to be imported

As we are the only tax-free bonded company in Bali, meaning only we can import premium grade recycled Italian & American Lycra, close to factory prices. All others pay the hefty 40% tax on import of their fabrics into Indonesia. These cost eventually end up as higher garment prices, making your purchase order landed costs to your country way higher than you ever thought possible. Beware, check at start.

We import from Carvico in Italy & REPREVE in the US with weekly flights. Any orders you place with us will be added to these flights, as soon as your invoice is paid. Flights now take two weeks instead of one, so add a week or two to your timeline.

Importing Sample meters – 2 meters per colour or print

Plains

Carvico will supply colours we don’t hold in stock in 2-meter sections ideal for sampling. Repreve does not offer sample meters, so if they are not in our stocks, then you have to work from the colour card, or select your fabrics from Carvico.

Prints

Nylon – We print digitally in China using Italian digital print machines & American Huntsman Eco dyes. Allow 3 weeks to land.
Polyester – We print in Bali on Italian Vita PL for Swimwear & Eco Olympus for Activewear via sublimation print. Max 3 working days.
Importing production fabrics – 70 meters roll based per colour or print.
As soon as deposit has been paid, any fabrics not held in stock will be imported. Allow 3 – 4 weeks to land.

Notes
Mixing plain colours. The trend right now is to mix several colours in one bikini. You should be aware that all fabrics, naturals & synthetics can bleed if left damp for any period of time. This is not a common issue for us, but it can occur. We can advise you on best strategy should this point pertain to you.

Grab a Fabric Pack

We have assembled some amazing fabric packs in both Swim & Activewear. These are a great cost-effective way to know the actual feel & stretch of any the fabrics shown on our website. In each pack our find one swatch of each of the imported fabrics, included the corresponding laser-copy colour cards, as per the list below. For print purposes we have added a swatch of REPREVE Nylon digital print as well as Vita PL printed in Bali using a sublimation print process & know the difference in these two fabrics.
