Inside a Russian down jacket manufacturing facility
These photos are a fascinating look into the processhttp://englishrussia.com/2012/07/20/production-of-down-jackets-2/
Interesting. Looks mighty unhealthy working on the down room. It looks like a larger cottage business. Kind of homey surroundings. Just think you could have down that spent time stuck to some Russian women's feet and legs.

Not impressed with the caption: "Goose down is cut off from an alive bird"Otherwise a pretty cool insight into how jackets are made.
