Title: Ercol: Upholstery Workshop
Photographer: unknown
Date: 1976
Decade: 1970-1979
Manufacturer: Furniture Industries Ltd.
Description: Colour slide showing: upholstery fabric being cut.
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.
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. This image suggests the fabric may have been supplied supplied by a client or a one-off job?
