‘made in Italy’vs’made in China’

first article is about how ‘made in Italy’ become like a brand.

However I found really funny how ‘made in China’ replace ‘made in Italy’ in other article. And last article is show how “some hide the “Made in China” label in the bottom of an inside pocket or stamped black on black on the back side of a tiny logo flap. Some bypass the “provenance” laws requiring labels that tell where goods are produced by having 90 percent of the bag, sweater, suit or shoes made in China and then attaching the final bits — the handle, the buttons, the lifts — in Italy, thus earning a “Made in Italy” label. Or some simply replace the original label with one stating it was made in Western Europe.”(7th paragraph in article)

So what do you think about ‘made in Italy’vs’made in China’

    I think that “made in Italy” vs. “made in China” will always be a pertenant topic when it comes to discussing consumer goods. It has been proven that major fashion houses like Prada have imported Chinese workers into their Italian factories in order to make a larger profit off of their goods. By bringing in illegal Chinese labor Prada can increase profit margins, increase productivity and still keep the “made in Italy” logo on each of their goods. Companies will apparently do whatever they can to increase revenue and maintain their image no matter how they have to go about it.
