Rayon is the first man-made fiber. It is the oldest fiber created in 1910 in the U.S. Rayon is made from purified wood pulp (cellulose) and then chemically converted into soluble compounds. Rayon fibers are extracted from cellulose derived from the wood pulp of Bamboo, Sugarcane, Beach Trees, Pine Trees, etc. Rayon is neither natural nor a synthetic fiber. It is made of regenerated cellulosic fiber.
