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.
