Pradoluengo - The Story of a small Beret Factory in Burgos

This video was sent to me by a friend from Madrid and I believe it's now the highlight of this blog! 

The video shows in detail the whole process of manufacturing berets in a small scale artisan setting, providing insight in how berets are made and especially how a small business like this operated; labour conditions, machinery, lots of creative solutions and ingenuity... 
Mr Agustin Mingo stopped his business a number of years ago, leaving Boinas Elosegui the one remaining beret manufacturer in Spain. 
Thanks, Suso
