Throw-Back Thursday Vintage Bigelow Carpet with Cumuloft Nylon Fiber

Carpet Surprises from 1967!

Today's Throw-Back Thursday features a bit of a surprise twist. This Bigelow Carpet Ad circa 1967 features a tagline, "Since 1825, America's Most Experienced Carpetmaker." But it's the Cumuloft logo in the bottom left that brings curiosity to the piece, with its tagline: "Nylon fiber by Monsanto."

Yes, the Monsanto Chemical Company now most prominently reported in the news for its global Agribusiness ventures has a long history of manufacturing nylon and acrylic fibers for many uses, including carpet manufacturing.

In this dated advertisement the husband's high school coach income is listed as $8,000, and it's the wife who is picking the carpet. In 50 years a lot has changed about carpet manufacturing, and a lot has changed about carpet purchasing.
