Even the best pile-fabrics are delicate and not meant for hard
usage. But our makers have found a way to make them give
better service to be less liable to spotting or growing dull
and lifeless which is a lot. It's up to you and your pocket
book to be careful or not in the matter of actual wear.
Just the simple thought of steaming every piece, after being
cut and before sewing together steaming and reflnishing in
a manner all this maker's own ensures extra liveliness in
the pile, less liability to "spot" and less chance for it to mat
or pack; and to need, maybe, a little less wear-care than pile
goods not so treated.
Not a penny extra is added to the price.
