How we began
Established in 1987 by Bali born Yogi Ngetis and his Australian expatriate wife Jenni, Yogi & Boo commenced trade as a small retail clothing store in Legian Street, Bali, selling both men’s and women’s wear in both traditional Batik fabrics and contemporary Western styles aimed at the developing tourist market.
In 1990, a small German fashion company approached Yogi & Boo and requested they manufacture various garments from the locally made Batik fabrics. Promptly, Yogi and Jenni converted their own backyard at their residence in Kuta, into a makeshift factory and managed to produce their first wholesale order with the help of employing local tailors.
As orders increased, the makeshift factory was soon properly built as a factory in their backyard as demand increased from international clothing companies to engage Indonesian clothing manufacturers. Later that year, a Swiss company, placed a prominent wholesale order with the company which led to the company purchasing land in Kuta to build their headquarters.
Steadily, the company’s manufacturing export market grew in the 1990s to countries such as Italy, France, Switzerland, Germany, Chile, and North America, Canada, Caribbean, French Polynesia.
As each of their five retail stores leases respectively ended, the owners decided to focus solely on clothing production and manufacturing due to high international demand and eventually the owners left the retail sector to concentrate on expanding their international production.
The company employs approximately 110+ staff, and produces annually for various high end to boutique fashion companies. The usual production of the company consists of resort and lifestyle wear, menswear such as street wear and surf wear, unisex exercise apparel, as well as hospitality uniforms and other industry specific apparel.
The monthly capacity is over 15,000 pieces, which comprises of 55% woven fabric and 45% of knitted fabrics. The most common fabrics used by the company include Rayon, Viscose, cotton and linen.
Apart from manufacturing clothing, the company also extends its services into yardage printing, fabric dyeing and placement printing.
The company’s clients are diverse, ranging from major resort wear retailers in the United States with one client ranging approximately 150 retail stores through US Mainland, to a client in Martha’s Vineyard (stocking 60 to 70 retail stores), Canada, Hawaii, and Australian clients (one client with over 450 stockists), and various other clients in New Zealand, Sweden and even Switzerland. We cater for small to high end mass bulk production in clothing and garments and pride ourselves on understanding consumers’ demands for Western high quality and time efficiency at a reasonable price.
We aim to provide consistently high quality garments at a reasonable price and on time according to the client’s needs. We are driven to keep up to date with technology in the clothing industry and increasing efficiency through using digital software and computer assisted designs (CAD) for patterns and markers. We also aim to increase our endeavours in providing environmentally positive change in the industry and more locally, our factory, where we have taken numerous measures to decrease our carbon footprint and recycle. We also aim to continue to foster our staff to achieve the best they can in both the factory and personal endeavours, as happy staff have been integral to our success for almost 30 years in the garment industry.
Yogi & Boo has also managed to open a sister company, Palm Printing Co, www.palmprinting.co to satisfy the growing need in the local and international community for an affordable, high quality and on time digital fabric printing service. Palm Printing is run by the same family, and specialises in print only services to both existing clientele and the public at large.
