...real or synthetic?

Hello. A young couple came into the shop yesterday looking for fabric. Embroidered silks are beautiful but almost twice the cost of synthetics. They found an embroidered nylon fabric that looks like silk and seem to be happy. BW just texted me and his Mom is doing better, thank God. There are snow flurries again in Chester County, PA but it's ok. Grey skies give way to some point. On this day in
1935, DuPont scientist Wallace Carothers invented Nylon. Wow, 75 years ago? Joan Rivers was only 50 then. She wore a polyester pantsuit to the award ceremony. I may be delivering furniture today, but we shall see. Have a great day, keep it real but if you need to be 'synthetic' watch out for the feelings of others that may be affected. Shown today is a nylon embroidered fabric available through me.
