      Why we are against copying in design

Coming from design backgrounds ourselves, we hold an inherent respect for designers, originality and brand ownership.

The purchase of ‘luxury’ or ‘designer’ goods on line, is problematic, as many of these items (both new and pre-loved) are counterfeit goods. In the pre-owned market, items are either mistakenly or dishonestly advertised as authentic. Some are advertised at a price which reflects the inherent inferior quality of the item, whilst many command prices close to the genuine article. Many of these ‘fake goods’  are unfortunately purchased by unsuspecting buyers, whom may in time re-sell to you via auction websites… resulting in the re-cycling of poor quality goods and your investment truly wasted.

The effects of the counterfeit markets run deep within the societies which produce these goods, whilst collateral issues spread across continents, with child labour rife and their families destroyed – the baseline victims of this industry.

Counterfeits do concern us all, from luxury handbags and household goods to food products, medicine, electric goods and faulty iPhone chargers. At it’s most fundamental level counterfeiting is affecting our everyday health and safety.
