Description: Colour slide showing: Tony, batch cutting upholstery fabric, 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 and Brian Rogers.
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.
