Early specimen of artificial silk, 1883.

The border of this hankerchief is made of artificial silk, based on cellulose nitrate. This artificial silk fibre was developed by the chemist and physicist Sir Joseph Swan (1828-1914) originally for use as filaments in his lamps and exhibited at the Society of Chemical Industry in 1884.
