Police said numerous dead were found clustered at the back of the factory, suggesting they tried in vain to flee the flames.
Witnesses said there were two explosions, both of which could be heard miles away.
In addition to the dead, at least 46 people, some with serious burns, were taken to hospitals, the police said.
All the injured have been rushed to nearby hospitals for treatment.
The factory, part of a complex that borders a residential area, had only been operating for six weeks, district government official Toni Rustoni told Metro TV. She says the female staff were mostly casual workers without contracts.
