Many handbags and purses are now made in China and other countries overseas. This includes name brands like Prada, Coach and Mulberry which sell handbags and purses that can cost thousands each. If you are looking to get the best value and quality when producing fashion accessories, China manufacturing is your answer. Here are some things to consider:
Know Your Customer
Understanding your customer will help you set the design features of your product. If you plan to produce trendy purses that will be sold in mass retailers to young girls and teens, your product will be far different than a top tier handbag sold in a high-end department store.
A younger customer base will want something that is affordable and incorporates unique details like metal charms, glitter or other inexpensive add-ons. Those who shop for high-end products will need purses that are better constructed with a sleeker design.
Multiple factories will be involved
Many of the metal and plastic components are often already available and made in China, streamlining the process and saving time and money. Because handbags are constructed of multiple elements and materials, the parts for your purse or handbag will be sourced from multiple factories in China. Most business owners don’t have the time, resources or experience doing business in China to source everything on their own… which is where we come in.
We often source products where there can be as many as 10 different factories involved, depending on how many components and material need to be sourced, the manufacturing processes, and if a separate factory for final assembly and packaging are needed. We provide you with one source that can put the entire package together.
