Sampling in A Nutshell

We produce custom made activewear collections for more than 20 international brands a month, adding imported high-quality, sustainable fabrics in both plains & digital prints. We employ a team of 50 personnel, including merchants, assistants, pattern makers and tailors, in our sample studio.
Samples, on average, are being dispatched in 3-4 weeks.

Sampling Explained

The first thing to handle is to price your collection. Once done, with prices in hand, you’re ready to get started on your own sustainable activewear brand.

If prices are approved & the invoice paid, you will be allocated your own samples specialists. She will be there for you until your samples are in your hands & approved.

Once your samples arrive, should you wish to discuss any changes you want to implement, then request a free video call where you can go over your entire collection to ensure we are both on the same page & clear on all points.

Rushing samples can be a recipe for disaster! Our team of approx 15 specialist tailors & seamstresses produce grade A export quality samples, a task only specialists can handle. Giving us a few extra weeks to handle this could easily pay massive rewards with you’re orders going out perfect to your customer base.

Notes

  • Samples are produced in the main, in one size, either small or medium. At any time, Don’t forget that collecting quotes is a great way for you to check our prices against any other Bali Active
  • Once complete & before dispatch, we send photos of your styles, allowing you to see what your designs look like in your selected colours & or prints.

You can download a Custom Sample Spec Sheet to be filled in & sent back.

When ready, place your sample order using this form.

  • This form can be used for both our ready designs as well as custom activewear designs

When ready to place your bulk order, your merchant will hand over your data from conception, including any notes & changes you have requested. Our production team will then hold a meeting & start to prepare fabrics, accessories & your heat presses.

Charges

We charge two times our estimated price, plus a USD 30 management fee per style, all-inclusive to the finished articles, including one heat press logo.

For example, a legging priced at $12 USD, is charged at 2 X $19 + $ 30 = $68.00.

Should you require more than 1 size per style, we charge just 1 X est. prices + $30 management fee per style. 

Digital Patterns & Size Guide

We create patterns digitally graded to international body sizes using state-of-the-art 2D auto CAD software, far more accurate than paper patterns.
Working digitally allows us to make incremental almost instantly as well as grade up or down a full or half size on request.
We strongly advise that you take the time to check our size guide to ensure they fit the market you’re selling into.
Skip this step & find your samples are too large or small; remakes are chargeable.
If the samples we produce are clearly different from your handover, remakes, in most cases, are free of charge.

Selecting your styles from our ready to go designs is simple, fast & cost-effective. Each article has your logo heat pressed into the inside back in any fabric, colour, or print. Any design selected can be altered, for instance, making the waistbands higher/lower, adding pockets or mesh lining, etc.
All designs have been pre-patterned & fitted. Your only decision will be whether you want to produce samples or save time & money & move direct to bulk.
