Real eiderdown is one of the warmest natural fibers you can find, but it doesn’t come cheap, an eiderdown double duvet could cost you over $8,000. Harvested from the nests of wild eider ducks found wild in Iceland, collecting a kilogram of this fluffy material isn’t easy, and only 4 metric tons are produced each year. So what makes eiderdown so expensive?

I really wonder who is able to afford this furnitures and not able to pay for heater? For me it's totally out of commercial interest , plus we don't need to be overheated to sleep , for clothes, other materials do the job.
I hope it won't be the last fashion accessory to have... this is not ethic and respectful and useless!!!

It’s expensive because the act of collecting nests while eggs are on them kills the Eider duck population and therefore lowers the supply for the growing demand

I can't believe they are filming this and saying that she is doing something ethical when they can see it isn't.

I don't think so that the duck parents will care for the eggs anymore since they have that human smell on them. This unnecessary industry is actually endangering that duck species.

Doesnt this "expert" know that you are not supposed to touch bird eggs? In some cases the mother ignores the eggs. How is this ethical in anyway lmao
