In Russia, for example, the retail price of clothing filled with duck-stuffed quilt is close to a lower range. Perhaps that\'s why media reports say Putin\'s eider expansion jacket costs $15,000. In contrast, it is now more common to have cheaper sources of down, which may involve a brutal lifestyle When picking birds, the eiderdown harvesting method includes carefully and manually collecting them from the bird\'s nest when the birds leave the nest for their annual return to the ocean.
