1. Five Backpack Manufacturers in Vietnam

When you want to wholesale backpacks from Vietnam online, you can find suppliers through two channels in the following:

With so many choices, it is difficult to make sure which one is right for you. So let me tell you some tips.

If you are new to the backpack business, you can choose DHgate or AliExpress as a start rather than buying from Alibaba. Because the former two platforms focus on retail and small wholesale. You don’t need to spend too much time and energy bargaining with the suppliers to negotiate a low MOQ.

If you have your own steady backpack business, you can accept a high MOQ. At this time, you need a manufacturer or big trading company that can offer you a competitive wholesale price.

For instance, when there are only tactical bags in a supplier’s shop, he might specialize in this kind of bag to some extent. If there are many types of bags such as school backpacks, suitcases, and leather handbags, it might be a trading company that can’t offer you a good wholesale price.

Many people ask me to recommend the best manufacturers for them, to be frank, I can’t do that at all.

First, there are too many backpack manufacturers in China. Besides, there is a scarcely so-called “the best manufacturer”. The right manufacturer for you is the best one. In a word, the type of suppliers you need varies from the different business scales.

By the way, many clients ask me backpacks made in Vietnam vs. those made in China, which ones are better?

Backpacks made in China

China is called the world’s manufacturing center, and there are many backpack clusters in southern China. Also, there is a strong supply chain in these clusters. They have huge production capability and they can produce backpacks at a very competitive price.

Backpack made in Vietnam

Now China is upgrading its manufacturing sector, and the labor costs have gotten higher recently in China. Some China manufacturers have established their factories in Vietnam. Hence, with lower labor costs and high workforce availability, Vietnam is also a great place to manufacture backpacks.

The same as China, Vietnam is also available to large factories which can meet large-scale orders. Moreover, some high-end backpack brands such as Nike, Fjallraven, and the North Face are all made in Vietnam.

If you want to know more about the comparison of importing from China and Vietnam, you can check an interview about importing from Vietnam that we had before.

All in all, backpack manufacturers both in China and in Vietnam are all good options to wholesale backpacks. You should consider your own need to choose the best one.
