Can clothing companies just stop…

stealing designs from indigenous people and/or citizens of other countries and calling it “Aztec inspired” or “Native American inspired” or any stupid variation of the sort? It’s not. You saw an elderly woman crafting a beautiful poncho by hand, stole her design, came back and made it out of shitty fabric in a factory where you pay little kids less than a dollar a day to make it, blew up the price to $70 and called it a “fashion poncho.” Fuck you.
