In Tangmarg, a town in Indian-administered Kashmir, migrant workers make bedding from old clothes. They use a diesel machine that shreds the garments into cotton, and then they stuff the cotton into a mattress-shaped cloth. The workers, who come from Patna, the capital of Bihar, India, roam from village to village, recycling old clothes from the residents, and they charge 1,000 rupees ($15.34) for two mattresses.
