    International brands such as Nike and Adidas have come under fire in China for boycotting Xinjiang cotton over concerns of alleged forced labour to produce cotton in the region. The controversy follows a similar backlash in China against Swedish fashion label H&M for also refusing to buy cotton from Xinjiang. In a social media post on Thursday, Communist Party mouthpiece People’s Daily named British luxury brand Burberry, American sports brands Nike and New Balance, and German sportswear label Adidas, as companies that have stopped sourcing cotton from Xinjiang.
