Chinese knock off 'Made in Italy' brand name


At the center of Italian textile production in Prato, Italy, NBC News Chief Foreign Correspondent Richard Engel uncovers a sweatshop full of illegal and legal Chinese immigrants. They are preparing clothing, sewing on buttons, and shipping it back to China with a "Made in Italy" stamp. Italian law doesn't specify how much must be made in the country to be considered local.  So if a few buttons are sewn on in Italy, Presto! It's made in Italy.
