Recommendation for a contract sewing & electronics distributor / manufacturer overseas?

I have a product that's sold out of its initial design. I'm looking to iterate with a better design and a Kickstarter campaign, and this time around--a larger product run.

I've been poking around Alibaba & GlobalSources but it would be a great help if anyone has recommendations for a custom sewn bag with pockets & printing, and an audio component manufacturer / distributor.

Thanks in advance!

Hello Liz: So I spent many years sourcing in China. I used a company called TCS for quality assurance and they also helped me in sourcing. I'm not sure Alibaba is reliable because even if you find someone there you need someone to get them and ensure they can meet your requirements. Galen Fu is the partner at TCS based in HK. Please let him know I suggested you speak with him. [removed to protect privacy]. They also provide service where they will help mediate the translation and negotiation and of course final quality. I found them to be very trustworthy, professional and reliable. Good luck! Warm Regards, Shaheeda Abdul Kader +971-50-7942895 Www.linkedin.com/in/shaheeda @saq3

@Shaheeda, thanks, did you mean "TCO"?http://www.tcochina.com/

@Samatha, I've looked into domestic sewing and the costs were way too high. This is a specialty niche gift product for musicians that will retail around the $60 price point. I can point you to my prototype over here, although the recent design has a more sophisticated case:http://fractalspin.com/home/17-electronic-musician-s-emergency-adapters.html

Hello Liz, yes you have the correct site for TCO. You can contact Galen. I checked the product link you showed and I believe TCO can help you. Good Luck! Warm Regards, Shaheeda Abdul Kader
