Busted: Clothing Company Sells $700 Sweaters Based on Sacred Inuit Parka Design


Kokon To Zai, the clothing company notorious for showcasing a design earlier this year that bore an uncanny resemblance to a Bethany Yellowtail (Crow) creation, has been nailed again for allegedly ripping off a sacred Inuit design.

“We’re going to get legal advice about our options,” said Salome Awa, Inuit, about the appropriation of a sacred parka by KTZ, a British firm. “There should be an international law protecting Indian garments, they’re sacred.”
