Although I doubt the e-reader came with a label like this:
For the record: this photo was taken in Canada by a Canadian
with Canadian hands. Using a camera that was
probably made in China, then downloaded onto
a computer that was definitely assembled in China.
I'm Canadian, so I really don't care that this bag was imported from the United States, versus an emerging world economy. What I do mind is the phrasing "made by American Hands." Does this mean disembodied American hands assembled this bag? Why no American Bodies, American Hands? Should I assume the bag-making American Hands belong to people with American citizenship? Is this an anti-immigration thing? Or just xenophobia? Or anti-globalization?
Also I can wash this bag, but it's not recommended. That hardly speaks to a quality product.
