We are an official retailer of the brands on our website. We exclusively work with certified suppliers which gives you, as a customer, the guarantee that the products are 100 % original. Many companies sell non-licensed band products to insanely low prices. The most common item is the rock/band T-shirt. You will find these products at festivals and after concerts, but also sold by purveyors claiming to support the rock scene. Many of those purveyors mix in original products into their selections in order to blur what they really are up to. This is not just a crime against the bands you like; because the products have been produced illegally, you can never really find out who has made them, in which factory they have been produced and what kind of employees and circumstances were involved. Those who sell copies can never guarantee that: their products have not been produced by children, that they don’t contain illegal chemicals, etc. What they can guarantee on the other hand, is that not one cent will go to the band you like! So if you don’t want to support smuggling, children labour or unnecessary environmental damage and instead of that the band you like, you should buy official products only. It it more expensive, but you really get what you pay for!
