Textiles

Machine tool and hand cutting blades have been used in the textile industry since the late 1800's.Traditionally blades would also have been used for cutting out designs for screen printing of fabrics. More recently design students have been experimenting with surgical blades for creating designs in various materials. Cutting into leather and other textiles can help to create intense geometric shapes.
