The Development History Of China Handbag

The luggage industry in China accounts for nearly 70% of the global share. This industry has managed to achieve one of the top positions in the world as it has penetrated the largest consumer market in the world as well.

The total sales of the luggage products in China alone have crossed the 500 billion Yuan mark. There is no doubt about the fact that the luggage industry seems to be facing some massive challenges. Some of the common bottlenecks are the issue of shortage of labor, the increasing prices of the raw materials, the accelerated speed of industrial transfer, appreciation of RMB, and so on. Owing to the confluence of these many factors, both the survival and the progress of the luggage exhibition industry have fallen into trouble, and this infers that the luggage exhibition industry in China will soon shuffle its brand.

Both the tone and content of the luggage are dependent on the type of fabric used. Further, the form and shape will also be determined by the straightness, thickness, softness, and even the weight of the materials used.

Earlier, artificial leather was made when polyvinyl chloride was coated on the surface of the fabrics, and this gave an inferior look. However, quality has improved considerably ever since. The synthetic leather which has non woven as the base and makes use of polyurethane porous materials as the base surface layer helps in imitating the composition and the structure of natural leather.

The fiber fabrics are used not just in handbags as fabrics, but they can also be used for lining parts as well. When it comes to fiber fabrics, there are two kinds which are used.

  • Polyvinyl chloride coated fabric and
  • The ordinary structures

Among these, the textiles which come with transparent or even opaque polyvinyl chloride film on the front or the backside come in different types of patterns and colors, and they also have a high waterproof and wear resistance too. These can be used for making sports bags, travel bags, raw bags, and so on.

When it comes to ordinary fabrics, flannel, canvas, Scottish plaid can be used for making bags.
