Title: Ercol: Upholstery Workshop
Photographer: unknown
Date: 1976
Decade: 1970-1979
Manufacturer: Furniture Industries Ltd.
Description: 35mm colour slide showing: an upholstery cutter marking out fabric for batch 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.
