PELLON(PELON) Backing material History
In the 1930's, Dr. Carl Nottebohm of Weinheim, Germany, was developing new BACKING Materials for leather and synthetic leather when he realized his invention had the potential of more far reaching applications. He had discovered a method of manufacturing textiles directly from fibers - creating nonwoven textiles. In 1948, the first commercial nonwovens were introduced in Europe. Two years later, PELLON® Interfacings were introduced in the United States. The new materials were resilient, light weight and lint free - and forever changed the textile and apparel industry.
The name PELLON was created in the US to reflect the new technology and its end use. PEL comes from pelas the Spanish word for hair. In 1950, interfacing was primarily hair canvas. LON comes from NYLON, the first synthetic fiber and a key component in the new fabrics.
The invention of nonwoven interfacing had an immediate impact on the clothing and home sewing industries. In addition to being light weight and flexible, the fabrics were all-bias. With these qualities, shape-retention and wearing comfort of clothing improved. Soon after its introduction, the name PELLON was synonymous with nonwoven fabrics.
