[:RU]Trash-mill Christmas decorations[:]

[:RU]New report today. True, it is not a fairytale. From the series «Beauty and the Beast.»
Once I went to a completely old school factory for the production of Christmas tree decorations, which is not far from Kiev.
It is difficult to believe that the colorful balloons can be made ​​in so anturazhnye even treshovy place.
Just as hard to believe, that each ball is blown to the detriment of women workers their health, because the production of Christmas toys are incredibly harmful.
So, welcome to the place where wonderfully combines the real soviet trash and magic of the holiday, loved by millions of people — for Klavdievskuyu factory Christmas tree decorations.


2. Klavdievskaya factory has been operating from the far 1949 and to date, little by little, to get out of the long crisis caused by the collapse of the USSR still.
I can imagine how difficult it is to survive enterprises operating only 2 months a year in a massive expansion of cheap Chinese consumer goods.
Probably, so I do not want to paint in the paint this critical report, but just to talk about how ordinary people in the old Soviet factory to make the beauty of the main holiday of the year

It all starts with the glass-blowing, which is in this old two-storey building with cheerful colored pipes.

And it is very true! I really love to do, industrial reports and usually need to make some effort to get shot in the workplace.
And here the company itself shows how everything is done.
And it should be noted, very successful.
We were shooting on a weekday, and the flow of visitors was just incredible. In the literal sense — the crowd of children and all buses coming and coming.
