Insider's Look II

Here are a few more pictures from the factory...

Working on the cutting table. He's using the cutting version of one of the CAD-for-footwear softwares along with a projector that shines up into a mirror which then bounces the reflection back down onto the leather on the table so he can arrange the pieces on the skins.

The cutting table seen from above.

A pattern in cartone rosso (red cardboard used for patterns) used to trim a quilted upper.

Can you guess which factory I visited yet? (The hint is the quilting. Check back next week for the answer...)
