The woman suing Nike over a $10-a-piece spa gown says the company “lied to her” about the material.
“I am shocked to hear that the company lied to me, because it is ridiculous that Nike would say that its fabric is 100 percent synthetic, when the company says it’s 100 percent organic,” she wrote in a complaint to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
“As a mother of twins and a professional designer, I am shocked that Nike is so cavalier about their reputation.”
The suit alleges that Nike deceived the woman, whom the company hired to design its spa gowns.
The company allegedly gave the woman false information about the fabrics, according to the lawsuit.
The suit also alleges that a “false statement” about how many different materials were used in the gowns was also false.
Nike also told the woman that her gowns were “more durable and more comfortable” than those made by other companies.
“While the fabric is made with organic materials, they are not 100 percent of the fabric,” Nike spokesperson Emily Fitch told Axios.
“They are a part of the design.”
Fitch also said the company would refund any product purchase.
