ISIS Now Selling Branded Baby Apparel
April 2, 2016 |
The Business of Fashion conducted a lengthy investigation into the recent surge of ISIS-branded merchandise online.
Available for purchase from a number of online retailers and physical marketplaces, the various articles of clothing feature ISIS symbols and slogans, like the Shahada and the prophet’s seal.
None of this is all that surprising, considering the terrorist group has tried everything from Twitter propaganda to high-level video production. Recently, however, the available merchandise has expanded to tote bags, tank tops and baby onesies.
There’s certain restrictions in place to outlaw ISIS-branded clothing, but it’s only in the U.K. at this point, so there’s not much that can be done to stop the rise of clothing in the Middle East.
While there’s no link to ISIS finances, it’s easy to see how this merchandise contributes to the group’s agenda.
