I think you are right but you may have overlooked why Chinese choose WESTERN brands to show off: ...

Chinese consumers choose Western brands because Chinese brands lack the CAPITAL to build up their own marketing channels and supply-chain operations across China and the world. Instead of serving Chinese brands, Chinese garment factories churn out tons of low-cost apparel which are sold by Western brands all over the world including China. So what you have in China is this bizarre paradox: Chinese consumers buying apparel which are made in China at low cost but sold by Western brands at a high price. Chinese entrepreneurs exploit this paradox by selling the same apparel made in China but using "fake" Western brands through Alibaba's taobao online marketplace. Chinese consumers flocking to taobao then buy these "fake"  Western brands because they're getting a bargain buying good quality but reasonably priced apparel that are made in China at low cost which they can show off to their friends as genuine Western brands.

You CAN find local craftspeople who take pride in their work, but mostly in the smaller towns and villages. Those in bigger towns and cities tend to be the "get their money and get out" kind, with not a care in the world about quality.
Stupid people are like Glowsticks. You want to snap them in half and shake the crap out of them until they see the light.
I love sarcasm. It's like punching someone in the head ... only with words

There are lots and lots of craftspeople in rural villages churning out tradtional apparel, furniture, arts and crafts. In my ancestral hometown of Quanzhou, for example, one can find ceramics factories in Dehua practicing their ancient craft which dates back to the Song Dynasty. Here's an ad:
