Abstract

The early 1970s saw the growth in popularity of synthetic fabrics of all kinds such as Qiana nylon, polyesters, ultrasuedes, lycra, acrylics, and orlons. By 1980, Qiana and other synthetics were becoming victims of a consumer backlash against synthetics and they began to be used less, eventually fading out of production altogether (Klapper, 1983).
