I find it hard to believe that Zara doesn't check it's suppliers, but apparently this is so. The statement was made after a British girl demanded a refund for a bag that she purchased at the store, only to find moments later that it had swastika's on it. Zara spokespersons say the bags were made in India, where the swastika is an ancient religious symbol for Hindus and Buddhists and represents sun, strength, and good luck to many groups around the world. Zara has 3,330 stores in 66 countires.
Since its adoption by the Nazi Party in 1920, people in the West have associated the swastika with Nazi dictator Hitler.
