I just wanted to get your take on clothes and accessories which are Made In China? I'm been trying to avoid them for the last few months because I'm not sure about the build quality. I'd buy something cheap if it was Made In China but as soon as stuff gets a little more pricey and I see that on the label I walk away from it no matter how much I like it.
Am I wrong? What's your opinion on stuff that comes out of China in terms of quality and more importantly value for money? What percentage of the clothes and accessories you buy come from the People's Republic?
So I guess the bottom line is, should I really care if something is made in China especially when it's a little more pricey? Not expensive, just not cheap?
Many of the world's top brands now have their stuff made in China. There is no reason why people with the same training using the same machines and same inputs can't produce the same product. That said, there are some handcrafted products that require specialized training and years of experience which are not as easily recreated. Also, there is an argument to made to support local businesses. Should you avoid stuff made in Bangladesh or Sri Lanka because of slave labour wages and conditions?
