Created in the 1950’s, Olefin (Polypropylene and Polyethylene are types) is a man made fiber that is created from plastic pellets that are melted, and then forced through a spinneret, which resembles a showerhead, creating the fiber, which is then spun into yarn and woven into fabric. Because the fiber is resistant to dyeing, color is added during the melting process, which means the color is throughout the fiber, not just on the surface, resulting in a bleach cleanable fabric, similar to Solution-Dyed Nylon.
