If you are looking for high quality bag and rucksack manufacturing services, you are in the right place. The Idea Lab, based in Guangzhou, China, is a quality driven and price focused off shore manufacturing company. Western owned and compliant in international quality standards The Idea Lab is one of the leading companies in South China positioned to deliver some of the best promotional products and design services at the affordable costs. Read below to learn a little about where we focus when manufacturing Cooler Bags


Cooler Bags are made from a blend of materials such as 70D Nylon and PEVA lining to create both a waterproof, insulating and durable bag that keeps food and beverages cool. PEVA is a biodegradable, non chlorinated vinyl that is commonly used in shower curtains, lunch boxes and sports padding. All material is sourced independently by us from local textile markets ensuring it is of both high quality and competitively priced, meaning the best available products for you at the best prices. We work closely with a partner factory to manufacture a wide range of cooler bags for all western markets. Whilst Chinese suppliers are producing a wide range of products for export, but they often fall short on western ideas of quality and service. This is where The Idea Lab is positioned to ensure that everything is made to your exacting specifications and delivered within your time frame.

70D Nylon and PEVA are two relatively easy materials to work with. We first create a template and cut out the out line of the finished piece in fabric. From there it is carefully stitched together, with the PEVA lining well secured with welding. If the PEVA punctures the effect of the insulating lining is undermined and the cooler bag becomes useless, so great care is taken during manufacturing to ensure during these steps that the bags are handled both carefully and systematically, so that the finished bags are fully waterproof and 100% insulated to keep fresh food cold for hours. Finishing includes stitching on handles, attaching zippers and speakers or charger packs if the design so requires. 


We have been making cooler bags as promotional items for a number of clients for many years now and we offer both competitive pricing and high quality manufacturing for anyone looking to get involved in buying from the far east. Whilst China is the world's best place to get things made, language and cultural differences still present challenges for anyone wishing to do business here. We have been doing business in China for over 10 years, we speak their language so you don't have to. All final quality control is matched to our and your exacting standards, meaning you get products at China prices but Western quality.
