Fabrics of Saran: A Dow Plastic
- Circa 1947
Color print advertisement for Saran fabric, made from Saran textile monofilaments. Saran is the trade name for polyvinylidene chloride, which can be formed into monofilaments or a thin plastic film. The advertisement includes two illustrated scenes flanking a panel of text. On the left, a young woman is seen in the driver's seat of a car, upholstered with blue fabric. On the right, a group of young men lounge on blue couches in what appears to be a college dormitory. The text praises the beauty and "wearability" of upholstery and fabrics made from Saran.
