Ethical & Sustainable Production
Tax-Free Fabric Exemption
The Indonesian Government awarded King Trading a Tax-Free Licence on the import of synthetic fabrics, saving 40% on the production costs of Swim & Activewear. We were awarded this Tax-Free Licence due to the fact that only King Trading follows all of the Indonesian Manpower regulations on the treatment of staff, waste disposal & water treatment.
This results in our prices being way lower than any other supplier in Bali. All other manufacturers have to add import tariffs in the region of 40% to the cost of their overseas fabrics, making our prices way lower than any other on the Island.
We are, as such, a bonded Tax-Free Company.
