Kite Material contacts in China.

Postby ezo » Tue Aug 24, 2010 2:23 pm

Hi, I live very close to China and I am looking to purchase a fair amount of kite material. Everything from Ripstop, bladders,valves, pulleys, etc. I'm looking for some contacts for factories, outlets, or trading companies in China where I would be able to get this material.

If you could send me a PS or leave a reply that be great!

You asking for trade secrets on an open forum ?. I do not think you will have any serious replies.
It will take a lot of trial and error, websearches and trade shows visits to get the right stuff.
Here another thought, why not contact the big kitebrands and ask them to supply you with what you need ? You will probably have more succes that way and know that this is the right gear.

Hi Ezo
I have a kite repair business in Hong Kong.
Bladders, valves and pulleys do come from china. (You need to order lots)
If you are after ripstop for kites you need to go for "teijin technoforce" best in the game.
Most of the manufacturers use it. Buy from Japan, but watch out for the minimum order quantities.
China ripstop is dodgey. I will not touch it at all.
