I am a HUGE fan of Tatty Devine. I have drooled over their style for a long time now and their dinosaur necklace is something that one day WILL be mine.
Today it was brought to my attention that Claires Accessories have been (Now how can I put this politely?) ripping off the designs of Tatty Devine and selling their inferior products to chav tweens everywhere.
(I can't stand the thought there is a 12 yr old walking around wearing a copy of a necklace I COVET)
Take a look
On the left is the original and best Tatty Devine Dinosaur necklace. and on the right is the necklace from Claires Accessories.
Are we seeing some similarities or are they absolutely bloody identical?
(yep, that's what I thought too)
How about another one?
On the left, Tatty Devine, on the right. Claires Accessories.
You can see why Tatty Devine are perfectly within their rights to be upset here can't you?
What gives companies such as Claires Accessories the right to just take other peoples designs and pass them off as their own anyway?
Is it just a case that they think a small company won't want to go up against their "might" Like a playground bully, did they think being bigger would protect them?
Well Claires Accessories have made a huge mistake here, they forgot about US.......
I have two daughters who would LIVE in Claires Accessories if they could. but I can promise you now that not one penny will be entering Claires tills from me until they have reached an agreement with Tatty Devine.
And I am sure many of you feel the same.
Why not let Claires Accessories know how you feel.
There's their email address.
I emailed them my displeasure.
Let me know x x
