Made in China Label

Does the "Made in" Label Matter to You?

The lines between the "Made in Italy" and "Made in China" labels are being blurred due to tens of thousands of Chinese laborers migrating to Italy and filling up its clothing factories, said the New York Times. With the world being so globally connected, it's quite common for retailers to outsource production or use material from other countries to cut costs. When you buy a piece of clothing, do you care about what the label says the origin is?

No, but I wish I did :(I want to buy locally, or at least not from places where they have child laborers and sick things like that, but I'd have to do research on every single item. That is just not possible. If a store or large brand was known for producing locally and ethically, I'd be much more likely to shop there, though.I'm already avoiding places who buy from sweatshops (like Walmart).
