Which bags factory is suitable for you? How can you find an acceptable bag factory? The number of factories in China is amazing. Most factories and product pictures look great on websites, but there is a big difference between the actual products and pictures. You can’t get much value online.
But there should be a factory that suits you, right? How do you know which factories specialize in the types and sizes of bags you need? Which factories have a bad reputation, due to poor quality or poor management? Which companies have just lost a lot of experienced workers, gone to another factory, or often received a lot of seasonal orders from long-term customers, which would cause your production to be delayed? Or how do you find out which factories are eager to cooperate and create new businesses?
If you’re starting a new business, you may be hesitant about language barriers, cultural differences, or demands for service and quality. The most common complaints include product problems, payment problems, communication problems, delay in delivery and quality problems. You may have heard that there are many advanced factories in China, and the knowledge and expertise of manufacturing are constantly improving. But when problems happen, you will feel helpless, unless you find a suitable factory.
Many bags manufacturers are located in Zhejiang Province Eastern China, or Fujian Province in southern China. This is a fairly developed industry, and there are many manufacturers and trading companies you can choose, but there are many more important factors to consider when choosing the right manufacturer.
1. Product usage and price range:
The bags and luggage industry is large, and you will find suppliers specializing in different price ranges. Some are high-end brands, others are for fast-selling brands in supermarket or store, and some manufacturers specializing in the production of promotional bags. If you need something high quality for a famous brand, the “giving quality” factory may not be the right choice. However, a supplier of “gift bags” may have buyers of big brands, such as AVON. In other respects, you need to look for reasonable bags suitable for your business. Therefore, the most important thing is to consider the focus and price range of the product.

2. Company license:
Every company in China has a business license (only in Chinese), which is the most important. By checking the registration license, you can know the scale and scope of business of Chinese companies. Many individuals SOHO are doing foreign trade. They have no business license. They either have an agent foreign trade companies or register Hong Kong companies, it has great risks in doing business with them without formal registration. They will disappear when something happened.
Please see the following pictures of our company’s business license and customs permits, we focus on bags and luggage manufacturing and export business.
3. Other requirements:
In the European Union and the United States, chemical regulations apply to bags and luggage. For example, PU leather may not contain certain plasticizers, such as phthalates, if these substances are not under any control, which means that their materials do not meet European and American requirements. If your export market is demanding, given your responsibility to ensure compliance. The key is that you choose a bag supplier that can provide this, and ask for various test reports. Except for EU and US, many countries do not need the strict required for the material, so the bags price will be a little better than the EU or US standard.
Please see the attached file the AZO free and low cadmium reports.
Another way to identify an organizer’s supplier is to look at their quality management certification, such as ISO 9001, and their social compliance certification, which tends to be market-oriented, but for some small importer or retailers, good quality factories with EU or US standard aren’t always the right choice for your product, you need to find a right quality manufacturers with good price, most factory less 50 workers without ISO9001 and social certification.
The only way to ensure that your bags are made to specifications, you have communicated your specifications and quality requirements prior to production. A quality inspector is hired to inspect the goods before shipment. Quality inspections are important to follow specific checklists.
This is the most bags quality control lists, Appearance inspection, stained, damaged, incorrect color and other defects, dimensions, materials, sutures, Logo positioning, Performance inspection, packing, etc.
Minimum order quantity (MOQ)
The MOQ of the bag is usually about 1000 to 2000 per design. Some manufacturers may be able to provide lower MOQ as 100 to 200 units per design. However, this is achieved at a higher unit price. By studying the vendor MOQ structure, you can create several different designs, or at least variants of the same design. Compliance requirements also have an impact, as MOQ need to be more base on compatible materials.
Country of origin
First of all, country of origin (i.e. made in China) labels are mandatory in the United States, but not mandatory in the European Union. It is essential to ensure compliance with imports from China and to cooperate with suppliers, with experience in product regulation in the United States and Europe. However, even if you are confident that the supplier is capable of producing the required bags, you must communicate in advance that all your products meet the requirements, and provide them with ready labeling documents.
With the network is more popular now, you can easily find many Chinese manufacturers in Google and other channels, but please remember the above knowledge, to find a suitable bags and luggage factory.
