1950’s in the Maabarah life hood in the early state of Israel, a special trade came with the Yemeni Jews who made an aliyah or emigration from Yemen. These craftsman, were the only people who practiced and trained to refurbish old mattresses and blankets by releasing the cotton then refilling new cotton to make the mattresses fluffy. He creates and re creates the mattress to become more comfortable to use. This gentleman was a very strong and flexible man who spent 2 or 3 days in people’s homes or tents refurbishing the mattresses, pillows and blankets. This trade held up to the early 60's when technology guided people to the factories with the cotton for the pillows and blankets in order to pour them through the machine to do the same thing the Yemeni Jews did a while back.
