Counterfeit Goods. Made in China?

May 27, 2008 • Fashion

We know not to buy fake designer goods, but now we know where these counterfeits are coming from. According to WWD, the European Union reported that, last year, over 60 percent of all counterfeited goods came from the nation of China. The apparel and accessories segment accounted for 61 percent of total
seizures last year and included 17.7 million counterfeit articles. Similarly, sportswear accounted for 3,255 Customs seizure cases and the capture of 1.4 million articles. Both segments increased their percentage within overall seizures. In the fake jewelry category, China again was the main origin source. With that kind of supply, there must also be demand! You know better, don’t do it!
