Mexico has blamed worldwide style brands Zara, Anthropologie, and Patowl of social appropriation, saying they utilized patterns from native Mexican gatherings in their designs with no advantage to the networks.

Mexico’s Ministry of Culture said that it had sent letters endorsed by Mexico’s Culture Minister to every one of the three worldwide organizations, asking each for a “public clarification on what premise it could privatize aggregate property.”

The Ministry of Culture said Zara, possessed by Inditex, the world’s biggest attire retailer, utilized an example particular to the native Mixteca people group of San Juan Colorado in the southern province of Oaxaca.
