Report highlights creative and flexible designs
Vietnam bag suppliers employ flexibility and creativity in their designs with a diverse resource of raw materials within the country. Even fabric lining, thread, tags and other packaging supplies are sourced locally.

Multifunction backpacks in convertible, fashionable styles are gaining ground. They feature several pockets and slots for storing smartphones, gadgets and documents. Popular decorative elements are printed or embroidered statements and graphics.

The report further shows:

  • Vietnam suppliers shipped an estimated $2 billion worth of bags and wallets notably to the U.S., Japan, the Netherlands, Germany and China in 2015.
  • Industry analysts anticipate bullish exports in 2017 because of the benefits from the ratification of free trade agreements (FTA) such as ASEAN FTA, Vietnam-EU FTA and Vietnam-Japan Economic Partnership Agreement.
  • OEM orders comprise 70 to 80 percent of Vietnam’s exports of leather fashion handbags and special-purpose bags.
