NYLON SOCKS – 70 YEARS OLD AND STILL FEMININE
Nylon socks are one of the most important things in the lady`s wardrobe. They are found before seventy years. Before this revolutionary invention women used to wear socks made from wool or silk.
Nylon was patented in 1937. Then in 1939, Dupont developed the fiber and demonstrated nylon socks at the 1939 New York World's Fair. Dupont also built the first full scale nylon plant in Seaford, Delaware in 1939. Production began later in the same year. During the very first year in production, 64 million pairs of nylon stockings were sold to consumers. Stockings were first sold to the public in May of 1940. Four million pairs were sold in four days.
