A comment from The Story of Supplies:
Yes this story was posted a little while back and swiftly taken down after the barrage of truthful, yet critical, comments appeared. I will state again what I said previously: I believe this article is just another attempt for Etsy to package Chinese suppliers and resellers as purveyors of “handmade” goods. It also completely ignores the probable use of child labor and unsafe working conditions utilized by many of these “suppliers”. Etsy is no longer a handmade marketplace, but rather just another venue by which to obtain unethically made Chinese wares.
