The owner of the trademark The Folklore, which sells exclusively goods from Africa and the diaspora, has expressed concern on its website that the Swift merch logo has obvious similarities to its own. July 24 She wrote on Twitter, “Wait. Taylor Swift. One thing is to use the name Folklore. But are we stealing black women’s logos here?”
“I’m sharing my story to reveal the tendency for large companies / celebrities to copy the work of small minority business owners. I’m not going to let this apparent theft go unnoticed,” she added on Instagram.
The next day, after solving the problem, Rasool told thousands of followers that her lawyers had worked with Taylor to determine “the next steps needed to make the situation right.”;
