Alto’s is a small family-owned company in Ellensburg, Washington. All of our tools are designed by us, and assembled by hand in our factory. In 1974, Alto Albright invented the original Alto’s EZ Mat to cut mats for his wife Juanita who was a watercolor painter. Over the years, Alto and his son Sam developed our entire line of mat cutting tools. We are proud of our quality products, and personal customer service is our priority.
In 1999 quilters requested that we make a tool to help them measure and cut fabric. Through substantial research and consultation with experienced quilt teachers and designers, we developed the original QuiltCut, followed by the QuiltCut2 and QuiltCut Pro. We since have discovered that our Circle and Oval Cutters also work for cutting fabric! To find the QuiltCut2 go to http://www.albrightmandolins.com and http://www.velvetonerecords.com.
