Diapers, commonly known as nappies (especially in the UK), come in two main types: disposable and cloth diapers. They serve both babies and adults. In recent times, there has been a growing demand for pet diapers as well.

China stands as both a significant consumer and producer of diapers. In this blog post, we will delve into two key aspects:

Where are most diaper manufacturers located in China?

The majority of Chinese diaper factories are based in the following 5 major places.


Based on abundant pulp resources and the early development of the papermaking industry, Fujian was among the pioneers in producing diapers. Besides, convenient transportation enables Fujian’s diaper manufacturers to effectively serve both domestic and overseas markets.

You might wonder, since modern disposable diapers are usually made of nonwoven fabric, why is wood still necessary? Well, the adhesive fibers that compose nonwoven fabric are derived from wood pulp.

Most nappy factories are located in Quanzhou and the prices are affordable. Usually, the most cheap diapers are produced in Fujian, though there are also notable large factories here. Some famous Chinese diaper brands are Fujian Hengan Group, Chiaus, Daddy Baby, etc.


Guangdong is also a major diaper industrial cluster, mainly centered in Foshan, Zhongshan, Dongguan, and Guangzhou. Here the diaper industry develops fast and has a strong emphasis on quality and innovation, with a combination of traditional and new styles.

As an example, Winsun Personal Care Products Co., Ltd., established in 2005, is the first Chinese diaper business to independently manufacture lump-free core body diapers. It was also among the earliest to utilize 3D embossing techniques and develop high-waist elastic waistband diapers. Winsun holds more than 20 patents and operates as both an ODM and OEM manufacturer. For instance, it provides OEM baby diaper services for the German brand Lelch.

Zhejiang and Jiangsu

Leveraging coastal advantages, Zhejiang and Jiangsu have gathered a large number of diaper manufacturers.

Hangzhou in Zhejiang hosts a multitude of diaper production companies. Famous Chinese diaper brands include Coco Healthcare, Qianzhiya Sanitary Products Co., Ltd., etc.

Jiangsu is a prime province chosen by numerous prominent diaper brands for their manufacturing. Notably, the Japanese diaper brand GOO.N has a factory in Nantong, Jiangsu. Moony Diaper Yangzhou factory stands as the largest global facility under the brand, and Pigeon has set up a factory in Changzhou, Jiangsu, to produce diaper products.


Changsha is the representative. Diaper manufacturers predominantly focus on innovative diaper designs and emphasize product quality, with many being private-label products. For example, Winsun invested 200 million RMB to establish an e-commerce diaper factory in Changsha.

So we can help you get precise, competitive quotations for various types of diapers, whether cloth or disposable, for infants, adults, or even pets.

Support wholesaling any type of diapers and customizing diapers at all levels.

We aid you in wholesale or customization of diapers in all varieties. In my experience, natural and biodegradable materials (e.g. organic cotton) for the diaper itself and eco-friendly packaging materials (e.g. biodegradable plastic bags, paper boxes) are highly sought after in the European and American markets. Also, rich colors and patterns are popular as well.

Usually, printing methods for clothing are also applicable to diapers both disposable and cloth tyes, because the manufacturing materials are varied synthetic chemical fibers and/or plant-based fibers. Digital printing, for example, is the most frequently employed method. This technique features the following advantages:

  • Applicable to a variety of fabrics.
  • Suitable for very small MOQs, even for one or two pieces.
  • Ideal for full-color and gradient effects as well as intricate pattern designs with rich colors.

DTG printing creates a high level of detail and makes the pattern appear as if it’s woven into nappies. Its charges are based on the printed area (square meters). The number of colors in the graphic does not affect the final price.

Ensure diaper quality and safety with necessary certificates and QC.

The quality and safety of diapers come as primary concerns for consumers. The price of a single diaper can vary significantly between expensive and cheap options, even though their outward appearance remains unchanged after use. However, the actual differences in indicators such as formaldehyde content, absorption rate, breathability, durability, and adhesive strength are substantial.

Our diaper products from suppliers hold international authoritative certifications, ensuring high safety standards. Moreover, entering markets in various countries requires corresponding certifications. For instance:

In the United States

Diapers, whether paper or cloth, for both infants and adults, fall under FDA regulation as medical devices. For baby diapers, CPC and CPSIA certifications are also necessary for customs clearance.

In the Europe

CE certification signifies adherence to the highest global safety standards throughout processes such as workshop hygiene, equipment, material sourcing, design, production, testing, and packaging. Additionally, the UKCA certification applies in the UK.

In some countries, there are specific regulations, such as requiring BRC Consumer Product Certification and providing MSDS reports. For instance, MSDS tests materials used in baby diapers, like high absorption resin (SAP), which is primarily composed of starch and acrylic acid salts.
