|Clothing: Large Square Scarf with Butterflies|
I purchased this scarf in H&M on 42nd Street and 5th Avenue after a trip to the Midtown NYPL and before a date with Greg Lindquist late spring, 2012. I didn't end up wearing it. After nearly 15 years of research first polyester fiber was developed in England known as Terylene in 1941. In 1946 American du Pont de Nemours and Co. purchased right to manufacture polyester in the United States nearly reversing fiber rations in the U.S. in the 1950’s. It’s development and usage in World War II brought the use of synthetic fibers during wartime up 10%.
