HISTORIQUE: Rayon is a manufactured fiber made from regenerated cellulose fiber (which can be obtained from the bark, wood or leaves of plants, or from a plant-based material). The many types of rayon can imitate the feel and texture of natural fibers such as silk, wool, cotton, and linen. The types that resemble silk are often called artificial silk.
Rayon was widely used during the 1920s into the 1940s in the U.S., initially primarily for men's socks but later for lingerie and women's stockings.
