This is a very delicate process. Fabric cutting is entirely automated in order to guarantee the highest accuracy and efficiency, whereas leather cutting requires a care and attention that can be achieved only by manual cutting. Once each part of the cover has been cut, they are sewn together strictly following a technical scheme.
