The Birety "Made in Częstochowa"
"Częstochowa, Poland is known for the famous Pauline monastery of Jasna Góra, which is the home of the Black Madonna painting, a shrine to the Virgin Mary. Every year, millions of pilgrims from all over the world come to Częstochowa to see it."
"Częstochowa to dobre miasto." Pope John Paul II

The birtey made in Częstochowa for example by Albatus are of a very good quality. Especially the cardboard they are using inside is "ideal", not too stiff and not too supple.
Condition as received from the Polish supplier:
the pompon coated by a polythene sheet
The pompon they use are made of wool, not silk and have, in contrast to the Italian pompons, the size/form of a little bit larger ping-pong ball.
In Częstochowa are as well a lot of clerical shops.
