Art/Literary - Textiles / Clothing / Fashion / Manufacturing of leather bags, purses, etc.
Spanish term or phrase: Oficial de mesa
The text is describing two roles in the factory where the bags are manufactured.

Sr. xxx es cortador, y Sra. yyy oficial de mesa”.

If I had to guess I would assume that "oficial de mesa" is a "table supervisor" or "table overseer" ... but I don't want to assume.

Any leads, much appreciated!
