A Brief History of Synthetic Fabrics

Natural fabric materials have been found and sourced for a long time. Cotton, silk, rayon, and wool are fibers used most commonly, but some resources that have been utilized more recently are bamboo and hemp. As common fibers were used in production more often, people wanted to find inexpensive ways to replicate the materials. Therefore, duplicate products created while respecting a nonrenewable resource.

In the 1800s there was progress in creating these synthetic materials, but they were often slow processes that would not meet the demand. However, creating a synthetic material was continuously progressing and just a few decades later completed. Wallace Carothers created the first fully synthetic fabric-nylon.  Created in the 1930s around World War II, this invention allowed for previous materials made of silk to continue to be manufactured and purchased at a fraction of the cost.

Synthetic materials continued to be created or used to coat fabrics because they extend the life of materials. They are more durable, with properties such as being waterproof, stain resistant, or fade resistant.

Commercial Uses

Synthetic and coated fabrics have a wide use in the military, industrial, and commercial field. Awnings, flooring, building materials, parachutes, ropes, cookware, and medical materials are all commercial uses that are mass sold. Synthetics are used in construction, hospitals, and to create uniforms that protect those that serve in military branches.
