Based in China, Alibaba is the world's largest retailer. It has come under fire many times for selling counterfeit goods from the likes of Dior, Gucci, Adidas, etc.
Alibaba even has an impact on what we like to call the "pin game". Most of the new wave of lapel pins are made in China. This means that once a person has their pins made in a factory overseas, these same badges usually end up on an Alibaba listing in which they are sold for pennies. This is done without their knowledge or control and undermines the legitimacy, collect-ability, and edition of the piece.
We have made another extremely high quality pin manufactured to our exacting US standards that is a tongue-in-cheek comment on counterfeit goods, e-commerce, and the increasing pervasiveness of manufacturing pins that lack quality control.
Hard enamel with 1 color fill and two butterfly clutches on the back to prevent spinning.
