Description: Colour slide showing: Tony batch cutting upholstery fabric. Several layers of identical, pattern matched fabric are cut simultaneously using an electric rotary cutter.
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. Image ID. by Mike Pengelly.
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.
