Chinese Copycats of Mexican Crafts
Situation of Mexican Crafts 2003 – 2013.
Mexican crafts and Chinese Copycats.


In Mexico a great number of people whose incomes depend on crafts sells are being really affected.
Chinese copycats have lower production costs because of the low quality materials used, therefore they can be sold at a cheaper price.
The Mexican crafts market has been taken by Chinese copycats, since people prefer the lower prices.
"Mexican crafter’s economic situation, specifically crafts sales, has been decreased during the last decade due to Chinese copycats of them sold in Mexican markets."
