Zara's products are supplied based on consumer trends. Retrieved 12 January Retrieved from " https: Zara replied that there were some issues in June in one single factory and - instead of solving these 'issues' immediately -, they have given a period of six months to solve them.
Most of the products Zara sells are manufactured in proximity countries like Spain, Portugal, Turkey and Morocco. Clothes with a longer shelf life, such as basic T-shirts, are outsourced to low-cost suppliers, mainly in Asia.
The company can design a new product and have finished goods in its stores in four to five weeks; it can modify existing items in as little as two weeks.
Shortening the product life cycle means greater success in meeting consumer preferences. Zara monitors customers' fashion changes. An average high-street store in Spain expects customers to visit three times a year. That goes up to 17 times for Zara. As a result of increasing competitive pressures from the online shopping market, Zara is shifting its focus onto online as well, and will consequently open fewer but larger stores in the future.

In , Zara withdrew a handbag from their shelves after a customer noticed a swastika on the bag's design. The bag came from an external supplier, and Zara said that the symbol was not visible when the handbag was chosen.
Zara spokesman Susan Suett said that if they had noticed the handbag featured the symbol, they would not have sourced it. Once informed of the swastika symbol, they immediately withdrew the item from their shelves.
In , there was an email rumor claiming that Zara "has been openly anti-Semitic for a long time" and contained a picture of the handbag that featured a swastika symbol in The Anti-Defamation League addressed the email and said that Zara is not anti-semitic and the incident involving the bag was remedied by removing the bag from their shelves.
The handbag was produced by an India-based supplier, and the swastika is a religious symbol for Hindus and Buddhists that represents the sun, strength, and good luck, as well as similar applications worldwide in various cultures far removed from systemized abuse. In August , a Brazilian television show accused the company of using suppliers who were running sweatshops for their outsourced production.

In August , Zara received criticism for selling a toddler T-shirt for closely resembling uniforms worn by Jewish concentration-camp inmates. The T-shirt was striped and featured a yellow star similar to the Star of David.
Zara said that the design of the shirt was inspired by "the sheriff's stars from the classic western films". After being on sale for a few hours, Zara immediately removed the shirt and apologized. Additionally, the word "Sheriff" is outlined in transparent letters on the bright yellow star. In July , complaints were made against Zara that they had been stealing designs from multiple independent designers for their products. One of the designers, Tuesday Bassen, who previously worked with brands including Urban Outfitters and Nike , contacted Zara and received a response from Zara that claimed that Bassen's designs were not distinctive enough, and that they received only a handful of complaints given the large volume of traffic they receive on their site.
When the news was eventually picked up by media outlets, and Inditex, Zara's owning company, was asked to comment on the issue, Inditex replied that the items in question have been suspended from sale, and that they are in contact with Bassen's lawyer to clarify and address the issue.
