ITA. i dont necessarily want my products made in china because there is SOME correlations with lack of quality (sometimes not, if the manufacturing conditions are closely monitored). however, its IMPOSSIBLE not to in todays business world. its called globalization people! you cant stop it! even if you buy something "made in france" how do you know where their suppliers for material, buttons, zippers, thread, etc comes from??? even their manufacturing equipment comes from china so no mater which way ya slice it, your supporting the chinese economy.
