this is the pits.


Made by white are not only some of our favourite Georgie Love folks, but they are also some of our favourite real-world people too. Therefore it's incredibly disheartening, distressing and enraging to see that shit UK store Top Shop have BLATANTLY ripped off one of their cutest designs of red riding hood and the wolf.

Georgie Love has always hated rip-offs, which is RIDICULOUSLY blatant in the world of crafting. We urge you to reject inferior copies and foreign imports and support original Australian design, crafters and makers.

You can read about it on their blog.

In other news, I just had a small child do an adult sized vomit straight down my cleavage. Not a good morning so far.

That was such a mixed post it made me very angry but at the end gave me a big laugh as I have a 20 month old and can relate to that..Can't Made by White do something about that!!

Grrrrrr! That is so infuriating!!

I just posted about it on facebook telling all to boycott. What a pack of untalented twats! They can't come up with their own ideas!

The concept isn't all that they stole....They're making profit from those ideas!! It's nasty and completley unfair!!

Oh, how disappointing. Well, that's to say the least. Personal experience makes me very angry to see this kind of thing. Worse still that it comes from a corporation too.
Ruby's vomit was the correct response!

I read about this the other day and am totally disgusted. I have lots of Made by White hair clips (which I adore) and it totally sucks that these hard working girls have been ripped off in such a revoltingly obvious way. Top Shop you SUCK.
