11/19/07 27 W, 1 I - + 15 - 13 How It's Made, Leather Helmet

This YouTube video is making the rounds, five-minutes from the Discovery Channel on how a leather fire helmet is made (by hand).

Back in like 2000 or so, I was up visiting family in NJ. Decided to take a ride down the road (about 25 minutes) to the Cairns main office. I asked for a tour and was shown where they make the leathers. Simply amazing….

That Carnes plant is closing shop. They are moving their leather helmet making to their plant in Jacksonville,NC. I believe Jacksonville is where the plant is, anyways if not it is near there.
