Add a dash of panache to hiking gear with this camouflage waist bag (top) and waist bag with drinking bottle from Winson T.C. Bags & Caps Mfg Ltd

Waist bags are always in demand, which explains why many Hong Kong manufacturers have specialised in making products of all sizes, shapes and colours for clients around the world.

Take B. P. Bag Co Ltd, which has a 25-year track record of producing a wide range of waist bags. "We manufacture and export waist bags featuring a variety of designs and materials," explains administration department executive Michelle Ng.

She says B. P. supplies various kinds of bags, including travel bags, shoulder bags, handbags, sports bags, suitcases, and even wallets, to a number of large sports companies, mainly in Asia and Western Europe.

"Waist bags made of nylon and polyester tend to appeal more because these are durable and easy to clean, although some buyers prefer cotton bags as they are also easily washable, and others like PU leather as these look more attractive."

B. P. sources raw materials including nylon, polyester, cotton and PU leather from the Chinese mainland, Taiwan and Korea for processing at the company's ISO 9001-certified mainland factories in Dongguan and Huizhou, which employ about 1,000 workers.

"While we offer our own designs to our clients we also have the ability to cater to the most demanding product and design requests from our customers," Ng claims. "Our production processes also ensure that we meet exacting quality standards."

B.P. Bags provides FOB Hong Kong prices and delivery times based on specific client requests. "These are determined by the size and complexity of a client's order," Ng adds.

P & S Enterprises Ltd also takes great pride in the wide variety of waist bags - or "belt bags" - which it produces and sells to an ever-increasing number of discerning clients worldwide, according to manager Sylvia Tam.

"We keep a close eye on new trends and materials which we tap to produce very attractive and innovative belt bags," she says. "Two of the most popular materials are polyester and nylon, which we have used to create some irresistible designs."

For example, some of the company's recent belt bag designs can carry drinking bottles as well as organisers and are sold mainly in Western Europe, the US and Japan under brand names like Piranha.

P & S sources nylon and polyester from Taiwan and Korea for production at its 400-worker, 7,500-square-metre factory in Dongguan. The company has a minimum order requirement of 1,000 pieces, delivered 45-60 days after an order is confirmed.

Similarly sports-oriented is Will-Power Industrial (HK) Co Ltd, whose belt bags have a very sporty look and have proved to be "quite popular" according to sales executive Yammie Lo.

"We regularly attend some of the major industry shows to stay in touch with the latest developments in the sector," she reveals. "These trade shows also enable us to meet our existing clients while reaching out to new clients and markets."

Will-Power's belt bags are priced at about US$2-3 per unit FOB Hong Kong, and sell mainly in Europe. "We have been consolidating our position in Europe while gradually extending our reach in other regions," Lo adds.

The company's 32,000-square-foot, 200-worker factory in Guangdong Province uses polyester from Taiwan to make minimum orders of 1,000 pieces per item, shipped 45-60 days after client confirmation.

Equally responsive to client needs is veteran OEM waist bag manufacturer Lee Wah Handbags Mfy Ltd, which has been making various kinds of bags for more than two decades. "We have the capability to make bags that suit every need," declares executive Connie Chow.

She claims Lee Wah's factory can satisfy the most demanding requests from a worldwide client base, particularly North America and Europe. "We source raw materials like suede, PVC, nylon, terry cloth and canvas from the Chinese mainland, Taiwan and Korea, and need a minimum order of at least 1,200 pieces per item," Chow adds.

These are processed at Lee Wah's mainland plant in Jiangmen City in Guangdong Province and delivered approximately 60 days after order confirmation.

Just as experienced is Winston T.C. Bags & Caps Mfg Ltd, which was established in 1980 and is an OEM maker of bags for many well-known international brands, according to administration manager Sandy Lam.

"Our main markets are Europe and the US, where we have a very good reputation for the quality and reliability of our products," she maintains. "Using high quality raw materials sourced from Taiwan and the mainland, we manufacture in our Dongguan factory under very strict production norms."

Winston T.C., which quotes FOB Hong Kong prices after studying order specifications, seeks 500 pieces per style per minimum order while guaranteeing delivery 40 days after order confirmation.

With such a wide variety of design and products backed by competitive prices and high quality, it is little wonder that Hong Kong's waist bag manufacturers continue to sew up orders from around the world.
