About Us

Bags Direct are a family-run business, specialising in designing and manufacturing high-quality bags for clients across the UK.

Since our early days of manufacturing bags in the UK, we have now moved from manufacturing to the importation of bags from China, which we can offer either from stock in the UK or tailor-made to order.

Please have a look at our extensive product range. All  the reference numbers ending in the letter ‘S’ are for stock bags supplied in 3-4 days. All of the other bags, within our range, are examples of bags we have made-to-order for previous customers showing the minimum order quantities, which can be supplied in the colour way of your choice in 12 weeks by sea shipment or 7-8 weeks by air shipment .

If you have an original design or idea, send us the details and we would be happy to advise and quote for turning your idea into the bag you are looking for. All prices are quoted on request either same day or within 24 hours for special designs.

Orders placed for made-to-order bags are first proofed with a full printed pre-production sample. The bags can be marked in many ways from print to embroidery or badges of many different types.

We take great care in all our orders from concept to production and final delivery in the UK looking after all the paper work and duties involved with the importation and custom clearance.

  • Thank you so much for creating the book bags for our annual conference. They were produced and delivered really quickly and looked very professional branded with our logo. They were very well received at the conference and we had many complimentary comments about them.
