Counterfeit Crochet is a group of angry crocheters on a mission. Their goal is to rebel against the astronomical prices and outsourced labor of designer labels. The bags are clearly knockoffs and are a mix of admiration and making fun of designers. "As a collaboration it parallels the idea of "outsourcing" labor, but also adds a democratic and perhaps anarchic level of creativity--within the basic framework.." (counterfeitcrochet.org). I think it's a pretty fascinating concept, yet technically illegal.
So, what do you think is this harmless rebellion or in as poor taste as the fake designer handbags on canal street?
I'm not really sure what i think, but i feel somewhat guilty saying that I think their really cute and i'd probably wear one? :/
