In the waters of the Breda Fjord off the west coast of Iceland, the thousand-year-old down collecting season has once again begun. According to a report by Agence France-Presse on the 26th, every summer, about 400 Icelandic farmers will go to Breda Fjord to find a polar eider duck and collect their gray feathers to make the world’s best duvet.
According to reports, these hand-collected duvets made of duck down can usually sell for 4,350 euros (about 30,000 yuan) a piece, containing about 800 grams of down. According to Iceland’s main down exporter, the polar eavelard comes to the Icelandic coast every May to feed and nest, and locals collect some of their feathers when they lay their eggs, and collect the remaining feathers when they leave the nest. This gray feather claims to be one of the warmest natural fibers in the world, and is lightweight and insulating. It is reported that the annual production of this down does not exceed 4 tons in the world, of which 3/4 comes from Iceland. (Luo Xi)
