Man-made fibre

Viscose and Acetate, derived from cellulose, were almost all the human-made fibres in existence before World War II. During the 1930s, after intensive fibre research, several new synthetic fibres were produced experimentally which, led to the production of Nylon (Dupont’s invention), the first commercially successful synthetic textile fibre. Since that time, synthetic fibre production has created polyester, acrylic, polyolefin, and others.
