BG Lovelace Chinese ripoff?

I seen someone mention in another thread that a Chinese maker ripped off the BG Lovelace print. I was just wondering if anyone could post a link to a picture of this diaper? I don't want to buy it since we have 30+ brand new actual BG diaper and wouldn't do that anyway, but I am curious as to what it looks like.
Thanks!

just curious what makes it a rip off? Because it is the same fabric print?

Yes, the print was copied. Supposedly CottonBabies or whoever has a copyright on it? Chinese companies don't care much about that.

Thanks!

That is crazy. I thought they just had a similar design, but no, they straight copied it!

And I see people talk about/ sell Alvas on here all the time. I have been out of the loop for so long I had no idea they were a cheap Chinese company.

Cottonbabies had the print designed in house. No one else should be using that print, it belongs exclusively to cottonbabies. But someone in China copied it and is making diapers with it.

Re: BG Lovelace Chinese ripoff?

It's good for people to be aware of the issue... some people don't care and would buy it from Alva anyway. I bought one a few months ago (for my DD on the way) and had no idea, I don't follow CB/BG at all and had never seen it before. If I had known I wouldn't have bought it, I already avoid the knockoffs of the Grovia prints. But now I don't know what to do... I feel guilty if I use it, don't feel right selling it, don't want to see it go to waste... maybe I'll donate it to a charity?
