Behind-the-Threads: A Sneak Peek Into Our Factory Production
AGVA STARTED FROM A CD POUCH..
What your iTunes/ Spotify used to look like
Founded and started in 1983 in Singapore, AGVA Corporation Limited is best known for our creation of the CD Pouches back in the early 1990s where people listen to music from CDs in their disc-mans, and movies were compressed into VCDs to be enjoyed at home. Our founder created a CD pouch where we can store multiple discs for the purpose of easy organisation and storage, and boy, did it become one of the most amazing inventions back then. It was so successful that major global retail brands and players wanted us to mass produce and slapped their logos on. Through this, we quickly gained prominence and established a strong foothold in the OEM industry.
AND GREW INTO A FACTORY IN DONGGUAN..
In 1999, we relocated and expanded our manufacturing operations into Dongguan China to keep up with the soaring demand. We quickly grew from strength to strength, and branched out to also designing bags for others globally, and then for our own brand - AGVA Bags, all the while keeping to our initial mission to make organising easy and effortless.

We also carry out numerous quality-control tests in every stage of the supply chain from product design to fulfilment in our factory to ensure consistency in the high quality our products.
