As shop owners, you’re constantly searching for new ideas for demos or classes. OLFA’s Chenille Textile Cutter is an intriguing product that often gets overlooked. Making chenille using the cutters isn’t intuitive but once you show customers the steps and how easy it is to use, it’s a quick sell.
Some featured of the Chenille Textile Cutter is that it has a ratchet dial that turns to expose a fresh blade edge; 24 edges per blade. It will cut up to 8 layers of fabric. If you’re not familiar with how it works, or need a refresher, watch our video.
The cutter has four “feet” serving as channel guides that create chenille in several styles of widths, from narrow to wide, for a variety of creations. Its premium-quality blade provides superior sharpness and durability. The cutter’s ultra-sharp, double-honed circular blade does not rotate and is housed in a protective dial with no exposed edges for your safety. Advance the blade with a simple click.
