In 2009, when I learned how down is picked off live chicken, just to make our jackets, I totally freaked out and gave away both my jacket, pillow and comforter. It was almost as if I could hear the geese cry when I put it on. Since then I have simply avoided down and opted for canvas and fake fur. Until now!
This coat from Esprit, is made of recycled down so that feels better. It's a constant question which price we have to pay, with our wallets, with our ecological footprint and our health. Grateful for this sustainable option!
So, now I can feel warm again. Including in my heart.
