Latex Catfish: Affordable & High Quality Latex Clothing from China
1. Our latex sheeting is made of 100% natural latex and has a comfortable and smooth feel. Poor quality latex will not be as durable or tear-resistant. What’s worse, poor quality latex may do harm to your skin. Some reactions to latex are not the latex itself, but it is due to some of the blending chemicals used when the latex is not completely pure and natural. Poor quality latex will have an inferior impact on the finished product, craftsmanship and longevity of your garment. Latex Catfish has stringent quality controls to make sure that only 100% natural latex is used in all aspects of our manufacturing.
2. Our corsets come with strong and high quality stainless steel bones inside. We do not use plastic or non-stainless steel in our products.
3. We use stainless steel D-rings, belt buckles, corset bones and similar items. Stainless Steel will not rust nor make your latex dirty or tarnished. Our stainless material is also nickel-free.
4. We offer a limited lifetime warranty on our products. Not just five minutes, but for the life of your garment.
We know that there are many fashion fans who dislike Chinese clothes because they are “made in china”. And, there are many complaints that some Chinese companies use copyrighted pictures or copy designs. This was, and still is, a normal “thing” to do in China. We were born in this country and that is how things are done here. Our copyright and intellectual property laws are different from other countries. China is not a signatory of the Berne Convention. This is not to say that our ways are better or worse, but competition here is different and methods of doing business are different. In this way, we started out as Chinese companies do. Chinese companies compete on their ability to build things, not on their designs, but their ability to take something and bring it to market. That is the way things work where we live. Our point here isn't to advocate it, but explain our evolutionary path as a company and our corporate culture.
At first, we got ambitious. We wanted to be better. We wanted to have a brand that would last long and to prove that quality products can be made in China by our hands. That we could operate in the global markets in our own way.
So, we started like any Chinese business does, by making things. This is what we learned in school, this is how we were taught. Over time, we established friends (and enemies) who were teaching and guiding us in a more global style of business practices. This road has been hard for us. Literally, it is unlearning a way to do business and learning another. We have listened; we have had to be flexible; we have had to fight our own taught culture - and we evolved. We will continue to listen and continue to improve - that is our commitment.
There are still many companies who are directly copying designs and using copyrighted pictures. This still exists in our country as this is still the “norm” in China. You may not like this. You may not approve of it, but it's the case in our country and these companies copy our designs as well. It's the way things work in our country. It’s possible, as China itself enters the global marketplace, for this to change - but it will take time and it’s not something we have a lot of influence over - other than trying to lead by example. We hope and believe, that there might be others too, who will follow our lead as we raise the bar in our industry and culture. This is happening across China as we move and grow into a more Western world of business. It is hard and we are ridiculed for thinking this way inside our country. A good article from the Economist on China's evolution can be found here.
Accordingly, we have improved our quality. We pay more attention to the seams, gluing and other details. We do our own designs, take our own photos and operate the same as our global competition says it does. Not because we have to, but because we want to. We want to change the image of our name and our brands. As we do this, our intention is to ensure that you can get good quality from us - right here in China.
We are not associated with other companies; there isn’t a hidden set of side business where we sell under different names. We are Latex Catfish Manufacturer. We stand behind our products, our brands and our name. We know there is a constant desire to lump all Chinese companies together because of our ethnic backgrounds or business locations. This happens because of marketing (or anti-marketing), word of mouth by people with an agenda, or just folklore, which stereotypes one country’s products vs another’s. We can't fight this - nor will we try. We will continue what we feel makes the best sense for us, our employees, and our customers.
With help from our friends, we are following in the steps of other successful companies that use Chinese manufacturing techniques and lower operating costs, along with Western style management and business practices to bring our customers the best of both. We will not hide who we were, nor will we hide who we are. We were born here. We grew up in our culture, our life and the way business is conducted. It is who we are - yet we choose to be different, we choose to set the example and we choose to be the best - regardless of the soil we stand on and the politics around us. We, like you, love latex for its style, uniqueness and sensuality - the pure joy it can bring to the body - and the mind of those who admire it, desire it, or wear it.
From our family to yours, we wish you joy with our creations for many years!
