Description: Colour slide showing: upholstery fabric being marked out in readiness for cutting.
Notes: This image is an outtake from Ercol's 'Craft Around the World' slide presentation from 1976. Date is from the presentation's slide carousel box. 'Saw Doctors - Furniture Industries & Latimer' is written on the transparency bag.
Note: Typically, for production-line process; Several layers of accurately lined and pattern matched fabric were cut at the same time. Plain and all-over fabrics were cut in greater quantities because there was less of an issue with fabric movement and accuracy as there was with pattern critical fabrics.
