With humble beginnings over 20 years ago, Australian David Eagles started designing and producing T-shirts from his bedroom in Bali.
Now happily married to his Balinese wife Ellie, the couple have grown Easytees to be the premier T-shirt factory on the Island of Bali.
Working conditions at Easytees are not unlike those of Australia or other western countries.
Our working hours are 8.30am till 5.30 pm, with 1 hour for lunch. We offer overtime from time to time which is usually only 3 hours and we provide dinner for those that choose to work overtime. Our youngest worker is 18 years old but the average age would be 30. Indonesia has very good medical insurance for workers. We choose to pay for the insurance for our staff and their families if needed.. We follow work related legislation, including paying the correct wages and insurance.
Our sewers are paid on piecework which allows them to grow their income as the business grows. Our screen printing department is subcontracted to one of our workers. He chooses to employ his family and friends to help him grow his business. Above all, we can laugh and joke and play music. The biggest problem is the clash between loud 90s rock music in the screen printing department and traditional Indonesian music in the sewing department.
