Police from Livorno and Rome seized more than a million counterfeit clothing items made by five Chinese-run firms in Rome and distributed by a wholesaler near Florence over the last few days, judicial sources said Monday. The allegedly cashmere items were found to be a mixture of acrylic, viscose and fur from rats and other animals, police said.
Police, who also found bogus merino lamb, silk and pashmina apparel after a year-long probe, cautioned 14 Chinese-born people for fraud.
