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.

Our sample studio runs a team of 50 personnel, including pattern makers, tailors, merchants, and assistants, dispatched from start to finish in approx. 2-4 weeks.

SAMPLING EXPLAINED

If you haven’t already done so, the first step is to price your collection. Once done, whenever you’re ready, you’ll be able to get started into your own iconic sustainable activewear collection.
The majority of sample collections are produced in either small or medium sizes.

Once samples are complete & prior to dispatch, we send photos of your styles, allowing you to clearly see what your designs look like in your selected colours & or prints.

With your samples in hand, you may request a free call back

Don’t forget that collecting quotes is a great way to compare our prices with any other Bali Active manufacturer.

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 $19 USD, is charged at 2 X $19 + $ 30 = $68.00.

Top Tip
It’s recommended requesting we produce two sample sets. The second set is only charged at one time the estimated price with no management fee, making the costs to send back your approved samples unnecessary.

DIGITAL PATTERNS & SIZE GUIDE

Patterns are created digitally using 2D AutoCAD software, far more accurate than traditional 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.

International Body Size Guide

If the samples we produce are clearly different from your handover, in most cases, remakes are free of charge. 

  • Some brands consider our sizes to be on the small side, so do check.

READY TO GO DESIGNS

The 2023 Activewear Ready to Order Collection was assembled using our best-selling shapes & our knowledge of what’s trending well into Spring 2023. Any style can be produced in any fabric, colour, or print and be altered, for instance, making the waistbands higher/lower, adding pockets or mesh lining, etc. If you’re seeking inspiration, see our video of some of the styles shot on the models &/or download the Catalogue inc prices here

Heat Press & Logo

Samples heat presses are only available in black and white using our in-house printer for size & placement approval only. When it comes to bulk orders, we import using higher-grade machines in any colour on request.

We then mock up your artwork on your designs to be sent back for your approval.

MOCKING UP YOUR DESIGNS

Once you have made payment, we mock up your Collection free of charge.

Visualizing your designs in the colours &/or prints in virtual 2D gives you a much better idea of what your final Collection looks like.
