Advantages of laser cutting textiles
Laser cutting is a totally contactless process. Nothing but the laser beam itself touches your fabric which minimises any chance of skewing or distorting your fabric ensuring that you get exactly what you want. As well as this, when laser cutting synthetic materials they gain a sealed edge which stops the fraying of fabrics eliminating any need to hem.
