To have their items made in China, these brands save millions thanks to the cheap labour in China. Come to think of it, if the same branded items were to be made in these brands native countries, say Europe or US, the prices would certainly be double of what they currently are.
Yes, simultaneously the risk of having these products replicated is very much possible but it’s up to the buyers to know and recognize the quality that they are buying. As a matter of fact, we did point out before that replicated goods are basically for people who can’t afford the real ones.
At the same time, it would be nice to think that these brands are offering work to the people of China when the country itself is not that rich and it is overpopulated. So in a way, it’s a 50-50 situation.
