Women sit on upturned baskets and cut salvaged clothes into pieces in a warehouse at a salvage depot, somewhere in Britain. Behind them can be seen the large stack of full bales ready for attention, and in front of them, a large pile of already-cut rags, waiting for transport to the next stage of the process.
