PROCESS WATERPROOFS ANY CLOTH (Oct, 1933)
PROCESS WATERPROOFS ANY CLOTH
Deluged by an unexpected shower, the wearer of apparel treated by a new chemical waterproofing process remains bone dry. The remarkable process, perfected by a New York dress manufacturer after a year and a half of research, may be applied to cotton, linen, wool, and even costly velvets and silks without altering their appearance or feel. When a sheer silk stocking, thus treated, is slipped over the palm of the hand, water placed upon it rolls about like a globule of quicksilver without wetting the fabric. According to the inventor, his process may be applied to suits and dresses, hats, shoes, pocketbooks, window curtains, policemen’s uniforms, and airplane wings.
