This photo spread comes courtesy of the June 1947 issue of DuPont Magazine, a publication first printed by DuPont in 1913 to help publicize the company's products and progress. This article highlighted, you guessed it, rayon, one of the many synthetic textiles the company manufactured (others included, but were not limited to nylon, Orlon acrylic, Dacron polyester, and Lycra Spandex).
