BANNER FABRICS

Selecting Your Fabrics

If you don’t know the name of your fabric supplier in Bali or the fabric name/s, then we will need your best shot of what to use to produce your styles. Fabrics are broken down into two groups, wovens & knitted. Wovens, such as Cotton Viscose, Rayon, Silk Satins & Knitted such as Cotton & Rayon Jersey, Fleece, Terry & Lycra. As we know, selecting your fabrics when not in Bali can be a challenge. To overcome this, we have assembled 20 of the best selling natural fabrics as swatches that you can purchase to know the textures & drape.

Bali Natural Fabrics

Bali has an abundance of natural fabrics, well over 1,500 held in stock & restocked as they are depleted. Retail & Wholesale outlets are many, with www.warnajayabali.com being the largest as well as the most helpful to work with. They have a vast collection of fabrics in white ready to dye on demand.

Indonesia Largest Export – Rayon & Viscose

Indonesia produces the highest grade of Rayon globally. Conifers & eucalyptus are grown on the mountain slopes & harvested every seven years, then re-planted for the next crop. Tencel & Modal are world-famous for being Eco-friendly & offers a good solution for luxury brands requiring a premium fabric.
