Bodyline & ethics?

Hi,

I kind of 'boycott' Taobao now when it comes to clothing/shoes, they have absolutely great things for cheap but I read somewhere on a blog that chances were high products from taobao are made in sweatshops/with child labor and such.
When I recently bought something from Bodyline, I saw "Made in China!!" and I kind of freaked out. I love Bodyline, but I'm afraid their products aren't only cheap because of the bad quality for a niche market or something (and it isnt so niche considering it also focusses on punk/cosplay/weird sunglasses). Of course, I never saw the factory Bodyline things were made in. I doubt anyone of you have seen it. But I still wonder, what are your thoughts about this?

Thanks in advance for your reply

PS I now see the other topic about this, http://egl.livejournal.com/15651092.html even though its more about brand instead of Bodyline/taobao
