  1. Hi,

    Interesting. I notice that you have a lining on the back of your scarf. Did that cause problems during laser cutting? Surely you would end up with two separate pieces of fabric where the holes were cut?

    1. Hello,

      We cut the pieces separately. Firstly we cut the black material and later on added the white one. Otherwise the laser causes problems, the materials may move a little while the laser is cutting and the second one is because of the different kinds of material. Various kinds of material respond differently to the laser cutting and it requires a lot of experiments.

      Usually the safest way is to use natural materials like cotton and silk.

      Hope that helps.
