Designer Zara Bag Pulled from Store Shelves!

What was Spanish fashion brand Zara thinking when they designed a handbag with a swastika on the print?

Fashion brand Zara is in hot water after a customer pointed out that their latest fall bag is decorated with embroidered bicycles, flowers and a SWASTIKA.

As well as being the Nazi symbol, the swastika is also a religious symbol for Hindus and Buddhists.

After pulling all the bags from store shelves as well as from their online catalog, a spokesperson for the fashion chain quickly released a statement of apology: β€œWe did not realize swastikas appeared on some of the bags.

Of course we apologize to anyone who was offended by the #bag, and we will be withdrawing it from all our stores.”
