Today, we want to introduce pros and cons of each technique and let you know which cutting technique is more appropriate in each situation. We also asked leather goods factories that are collaborating with Betangible. Below you can find the results of the poll. In order to show you this, we have made some charts:

In a previous article, we also mentioned the three main ways of cutting the leather. Today, we want to show you another video in which you will be able to see how Spanish leather workers cut the leather using a die cutting machine and different cutting metal patterns.
