Are you into fashion designing and would like to break into the industry with a handbag business? You can come up with a line of designs that you can have made and distributed wholesale. Or, you can find a manufacturer that sells wholesale and carry its line of products in your boutique.

If you are looking for ideas to start a handbag business, you can go into manufacturing, or retailing.

handbag business

But before you get carried away by the excitement of the prospect of owning a business in line with fashion and designing, slow down and think like a businessman rather than an artist. Ask yourself this question: is there a demand for the product you will sell?

Demand is important for the success of any business. You might be heading into a market that is oversaturated with handbag manufacturers and retailers. So before investing time and money into designing, getting samples made, as yourself whether there is a general demand for your product or whether there is a particular niche you can serve. Ask yourself what novel idea you can introduce into the industry. Is there a specific product you can sell, perhaps handmade items.

Starting a Handbag Manufacturing Business

To manufacture handbags you’d need to come up with designs of the articles you want to make and have them made. If you have knowledge about fashion designing either by taking a short course or a college degree or by working in a fashion house, you can make the design yourself. If not, you can hire someone with such knowledge. After you have the design, you can sew an actual product yourself (perhaps if you intend to produce handmade ones), have an entire manufacturing staff do it (mass manufacturing), or you can outsource the work to a bag manufacturer. Afterwards, you will face the task of marketing and distributing your line of products to stores and boutiques.

Starting a Handbag Retailing Business

If you simply want to put up a store selling handbags, your most major task is finding a wholesaler from which you can get supplies at prices you can sell for profit. Then you have to think about how to set up your shop. That depends on what kind of business you want to run. You’d need to fit your store to the kind of clientele you want to serve. If you will be selling high-end items, then you will set up a boutique-style shop in a posh area.

Handbag Business Online

Either way, consider the idea of getting an online presence. Ask a web developer to do the task for you. If aside from being a fashion designer, you are also a photographer, you can take pictures of the handbags, label them and post them on your site. Otherwise, ask or hire someone. Getting word about your business through the Internet is the best way to reach a wider market locally and abroad.

    i'm launching a handbag label this month. and i have to say, it's been overwhelming. I have a degree in design and I figured I know the ends and outs of design....this should be right up my alley.

    Not at all. First I want to say, do your homework if you plan on having the bags manufactured overseas. Be prepare to get involved in the business end of things. Once I finished the designs, I had them manufactured in china. Thinking this would be a piece cake. Not at all.

    This is where it all begins. You have to be on top of things. You may have to send the samples back at least 3 to 4 times. This means shipping cost. After you get your samples ready for mass production. You need to finalized on other things like, hangtags, zipperpulls, inside interior lining, moles for your logo, charms and zipper pull. Countless hours online speaking with project managers who oversee the project at all hours of the night.

    Then you have to organized the photoshoot to have your backs shot. If you want a model, you have to look for one. Pick out a photographer, pick out a make up artist and style the entire shoot for your vision. Don't forget you need backing to do all of this.

    Once the shoot is done. You will need a web designer to prepare your website. Do your own line sheets, look books and ordering forms to show to potential buyers. I also started a spreadsheet with editors, buyers, industry contact information to send out press kit to. Email as much people as possible to get the word out. I'm definitely no expert, but being in this new phase of my life...i think it's only human to pass it along to someone who plans on pursuing this. I just wished I had someone who could have told me what to look forward to.

    I started my project last may and were launching next month. And I have to say, be prepared to have lots of mood swings. But remembered to see the big picture. It's exciting!

I need help, for the pass 4 years i started making hand bag's by hand & pillows i love to sew ,but what i would really love, would be, to see these hand bag's everywhere , yes to be sold, but first i need them to be in production and manufacture, so if you can help me in any kind of way please do, i feel that these bag's will go because i am a talent agent and when people see my bag's they get mad at me because they feel my bags should be in the store's or on line HOPE You can understand, i feel all alone, I LIVE IN DECATUR GA

    I am looking to go into the business and is doing some online research. I have seen this website, don't know how good they are but check out www.manolucci.com they are based in New York and from their website will manufacture for you. Hope this helps those looking at manufacturing in the US.

    Hi my name is Veronica, My business partner and i currently are trying to launch our design company. We have most of our designs licensed and some are actually patented. We have a hard time finding someone that can manufacture high quality leather. We would need some that could interpret a detailed sketch and make it from start to finish until it is perfect. We are running low on funds so we need some one who can do it fairly inexpensive. On a side note we already have some buyers lined up that love our design but want to see a sample first. We are hoping to have a sample by the end of the year but the sooner the better. I would love a US based company if possibly to keep the shipping costs fairly low and also to hopefully get the ball moving a little faster. If anyone out there is up for the challenge to manufacture our design. Please please contact me as soon as possible. nelson_veroncia@msn.com Thanks!

Just how to get started period, I don't have a clue. Thanks

    Hi all - Was wondering how to price handmade handbags... I've over and over the double/double scenario. Is this still true for pricing handbags? Or is the markup less than 50% for wholesale and retail price? Thanks for any advice.
  • 83. James expert adviser said on 2/26/2011 8:14:49 PM
    @Dana, who are your buyers? Markup will vary depending on your customers.

  • 84. Dana said on 2/26/2011 8:42:31 PM
    @James can you explain that in more detail for me? what/how would make the markup differ?
  • 85. James expert adviser said on 2/26/2011 9:25:40 PM
    @Dana, In a supply chain system at least you have 2-3 tier of people. If you are the producer and you have the scope to reach the customers then you can have high markup price, you can also markdown on needed as you have higher range with you. If you have multiple tiers in between you and the customer then you will have to keep the markup low, here the benefit is you will sell in bulk. I hope this clears some of your doubts. Let me know if you need further assistance.

  • 86. Dana said on 2/27/2011 9:01:27 AM
    @James as in the wholesale price (lower price and in bulk) and the retail price (higher price right to customer). is that what you mean?
  • 87. James expert adviser said on 2/27/2011 9:55:23 PM
    @Dana, yes. You got it right. You also need to see who are your buyers. If they are from western countries then you can adjust your price accordingly.

  • 88. Dana said on 2/28/2011 8:18:00 AM
    @James but is the markup for wholesale double my costs and retail double my wholesale? Or is it less than double (30 - 40% markup)?
  • 89. James expert adviser said on 2/28/2011 11:53:21 PM
    @Dana, it totally depends. I will give you one example of shoes. The retail price of shoes averages $15-$20 and wholesale buying averages $4-8. Producer sells at $3-$6. The gas station sells drugs like 1 packet tylenol for $1, buying cost remains in 9-18 cents for those packets. Wholesaler buys it in 6-12 cents. It totally varies with product and place.

    @James, and this is why i struggle. I can't figure out how much to mark them up.
  • 91. James expert adviser said on 3/1/2011 11:59:56 PM
    @Dana, i have a trick if you buy it. Call your competitors and act as the buyer to know their markup price. Otherwise try to set a higher price and mark it low on needed.

If it costs me say $34.00 to produce a bag? How much should I be wholesaling at? Not sure how much profit most business's make on the wholesaling mark up?

Now if the bag is costing us at $15 shall we add 100% markup means sell it right now for $30 and later on when we approach wholesaler we will sell to them for $21. Will this model work ? With Wholesale price to do the retailing on our own. Regards, CK

    Hi everyone, It is really sad that a great number of people have passion for bag designs in their head but cannot translate it to paper and finally to the shelf to become happy CEOs. From my experience dealing with Business Starters in the Fashion-related industry, all you need to do is 'process'. It doesn't matter where you live and what market you are targeting, what's important is 'getting the ideas out'. Take it from the scratch, build your own brand one-block-at-a-time! And so, if you are serious and ready to work hard on yourself and your new business, I guarantee you - your handbag products will be out in the market in no time. You can contact me if you need professional help to put your ideas together, finish designs, discuss pricing, source fabrics, get sales partners or generally get your handbag business project started. www.facebook.com/opedollar

I want cute stylish hand bags that I can make a profit off of. My family owns a boutique and are willing to sell there as well if bags are the type we are looking for. Considering diaper bags as well but nothing official yet! If u know of anyone who designs bags and just needs someone to help sell them send me some example pictures and a business plan / deal and i'll get back to u ASAP! Thanks so much :) bryntayk@hotmail.com
