Providing high-quality swim, active, yoga, and athleisure wear
For over 30 years, King Trading has been producing sustainable clothing to export to over 26 countries, the majority being swimwear and activewear to the AUS, USA, E.U. and the Middle East.
Being the only company on the island with an import tax exemption certificate allows us to offer prices & quality that no other company can match. We import far superior fabrics for the swimwear and activewear divisions than anything available in Bali. These fabrics are mostly recycled & sustainable from ECONYL® & Carvico® in Italy, REPREVE® in the U.S. & Power-Fit® in Korea. By importing fabrics using our licence, we save 35% on import tax that all other Bali producers must pay & add to your invoice production costs.

Dying natural fabrics
Due to the scarcity of pre-dyed natural fabrics in Bali, we dye your colour on request. For any colour, we require a Pantone reference for the colour you want. As an example, you want a nude colour. Enter “Pantone Nude TPG” into Google, & you’ll see something like this. Select the colour you like & send the image as a scene shot. Once received for 30 USD, we create a strike-off colour swatch.
Note: Each colour swatch is chargeable at USD 30 per swatch & takes approximately three days to produce. The dyes we use come from Dystar in Germany & are all certified eco-friendly.

We are very fortunate in Bali to have access to hand silk screen printing & digital printing. In the past, we produced thousands of printed dresses for David Jones & Myers in AUS, Urban Outfitters in the U.S. & Top Shop in the U.K. using the hand silkscreen method due to the colour saturation & uniqueness of the prints.
If your print motifs have many colours or your print orders are relatively small, we suggest printing using a digital print machine.

Pricing your designs.
Once you know the designs you want to produce & are fairly clear on the fabrics, colours & prints you want to produce them in, we can provide an estimated price for sampling & production.
If your designs are simple, front & back screenshots work. We may require tech packs or detailed, clear line drawings for anything more complex.
In most cases, whatever way works for you also works for us.
Once received, a ladieswear specialist will go over your handover & get back to you if anything needs to be clarified. Once all is clear, you will receive your prices in approximately three days.
2. Ready-to-Order Designs
Alternatively, if you prefer, you can select some of our ready-to-order designs assembled from our best-sellers and our predictions concerning trends for 2024.
See the Swimwear & Activewear collection.
Please select the styles you like and, using this form, indicate what fabric you would like them produced in, either plain or printed.
3. Mix & Match
More popular these days is to mix & match some of your own custom designs with some of our ready-to-order ones. Once you have all your designs to hand, send your custom designs as screenshots and our designs using the product codes as an email.
Once received, in 2 to 3 working days, you’ll hear back with our most competitive price for a premium quality product.
We operate a sampling department with 60 sample specialists, all with at least ten years of experience sewing samples, including pattern makers, tailors & sewists, merchants & assistants.
As soon as your collection has been priced, with your approval to begin, we will send you a sample invoice. Once paid, you’ll be assigned a ladieswear merchant who will review anything in your handover & organize a call back to ensure we are all clear.
We charge twice our estimated price plus a USD 30 management fee per sample.
For example, a ladies’ dress costing USD 20 will be charged 2 X $20 + $30 = $70.00.
Things like accessories, labels & tags will then be discussed with your merchant.
- If your handover is clear & easy to understand with notes on any required changes, we often see samples produced much faster with samples approved in the first batch.
Once you have paid for your samples, we offer a free mock-up service, allowing you to visualize how your designs look on a 2D model in your selected colours & or prints, allowing you to make any last-minute adjustments before we start cutting your fabrics.

Taking care of our community
A monthly donation is made to Bali Street Mums, a charitable organization run by Kim from New Zealand. Her mission is to provide a safe environment for mothers and children in Bali who scavenge their livelihood from garbage dumps and begging by the side of the road. Children are especially susceptible to exploitation by sex traffickers and live a life of misery.
