About one century ago, when the world population was estimated at 1,5 billion persons, the fibre production was practically limited only to natural fibres; cotton represented a production of 3,160.000 tons and wool production only 730,000 tons. In addition to these quantities, the production of silk (small quantities) and of other natural fibres (mainly hard or bast fibres) has to be taken into account.Man-made fibres were still at their dawn; in fact historical data mention also a small production of artificial cellulose yarn (1,000 tons).

Synthetic fibres the development and production of synthetic fibres (obtained by synthesis of chemical compounds) are a rather recent achievement. The delay in developing these fibres is to be ascribed to an insufficient knowledge of the structure of natural polymers (such as cellulose, rubber, natural fibres), which were difficult to be studied from the chemical point of view because they were nor fusible, nor reactive and not even soluble: in short, they were completely different from usual chemical substances.

The first man-made fibres which were developed and produced used polymers of natural origin, more precisely of cellulose which is a raw material available in large quantities in the vegetable world.
