Ray of Light! {the art of laser cutting}

Laser cutting is not just for industrial use. These beautiful textiles have been artistically cut for our wearing pleasure! Just look at how beautiful this dress by Marchesa is! I don't know about you, but it literally took my breath away!









Laser cutting on leather and fabric creates a really interesting design. It almost looks like lace. What's the difference between lace and laser cut fabric you ask? Lace is created by looping, twisting, or braiding threads. Laser cutting is created by a computer programmed laser cutter. It leaves an edge with a high quality surface finish. Just look at the perfection that can be created!
