Chinese brand SHEIN under fire for selling prayer mats as casual carpets

SHEIN, an international fashion platform of Chinese origin has come under fire for selling Prayer mats as casual carpets. The website was called out by Muslims around the world after multiple users noticed that prayers mats, with images of the Kaabah and Prophet Muhammad’s mosque, were being sold as carpets for decoration purposes. The items were labelled as “fringe trim carpets.”

The brand that covers more than 220 countries and regions has now removed the items from their website after repetitive complaints and being called disrespectful.
