As the world’s largest producer and exporter of textiles, China’s fabric industry is quite complete and mature. If you want to start a fabric business, you can consider wholesaling or customizing from China. You will get a variety of low-cost and high-quality fabrics here.

Today’s post will help you understand the basic information about China’s fabric market. Let’s have a look.

Where is the textile market in China?

China’s textile industry cluster is mainly concentrated in Guangdong, Zhejiang, Jiangsu, Shanghai, and Fujian provinces, which have lots of textile manufacturing and processing factories. Any fabric you want to import, such as silk, cotton, polyester, knitting, etc., can be found in these areas.

The prices are lower in these places, because factors such as the abundance of raw materials (e.g. cotton, silk) and lower labor costs have reduced the cost of fabric manufacturing. In addition, the technology of factories is also mature. Not only the manufacturing lead time is short, but also the fabric uniformity is good.

China fabric wholesale websites online

There are many fabric manufacturers on Chinese wholesale websites. You can easily find them on Alibaba, made-in-china, Aliexpress & DHgate, etc. Note that more than 70% of the suppliers are actually trading companies, not real fabric factories. But they can all help you wholesale fabric from China.

When you seek suitable suppliers online, remember not to put too much faith in the low price. Those low-priced suppliers may ask for far more MOQ than you need. That is, you can only get this competitive price when you buy the quantity up to his MOQ, or the quality of the product they sell is not up to your requirements. So you still need to balance the price and quality.

How to import fabric from China?

There are 3 steps to importing fabric from China.

Select suppliers

Based on your target product, you should choose suppliers in the industry clusters I mentioned above, so you can get a more competitive price.

For example, if you want to import silk fabrics, you’d better select suppliers in Zhejiang and Jiangsu Provinces. Because these two provinces have a long history of silk culture and a large output (accounting for 50% of the national silk output). On Alibaba, when you search for “silk fabric”, 16 of the first 20 suppliers are in these two areas.

Then you should check and choose several suppliers (at least 2-3) to describe your wholesale or custom requirements.

Confirm the details and get a quote

You should communicate with suppliers in detail, such as size, custom graphics, the suture method, etc., and let them send you samples. According to the samples, their quotation and communication, you can choose the most suitable one. If you feel that the sample does not meet your requirements, you can ask the factory to adjust it until you are satisfied.

Place your order and arrange to ship

In this step, you can place your order. The factory will arrange mass production and shipment according to shipping incoterms. You’d better arrange quality control before your cargo leaves China, which is a good way to avoid defective products in the goods you receive exceeding your acceptable level.

Why do you choose JingSourcing as your fabric wholesale agent?

Once you choose us as your sourcing agent, we will look for suppliers matching your requirements from dozens or even hundreds, all of which are located in industrial clusters.
