No Better Gift for Girl or Woman than a Dress-Length of SUESINE.
Twelve to fourteen yards are enough for a dress—you can't think of anything else so pretty, so attractive and so acceptable that will cost you so little. If you don't want to spend the money for a dress-length, buy enough for a waist.
You can use Suesine for a thousand purposes;—fancy work of all sorts, from pin cushions to sçwingbags; under lace bureau scarfs; sofa cushions; the backs of curtains; facings; under shams or lace spreads.
What a pretty dress of Suesine some little girl is going to have who doesn't expect it, and her mother will save so much that she won't find it very hard to persuade herself to have for Christmas just the nicest dress of Suesine she ever had.
The Praise of its Pleased Customers has made the Suesine Silk. Tens of thousands of Women have proved its Greater Reliability and Value by Actual Use. They Buy it again and again, year after year, and they tell their Friends.
NO advertisement we could write can speak half as strongly for Sue sine Silk as the praise of these hundreds of thousands of fastidious women, and good judges of value, who know Suesine Silk by their own experience, — and who buy it again and again every season.
These women refuse all imitations and substitutes,—they insist on buying only SUESINE SILK,—with the name on the edge of every yard. Isn't that proof that Suesine Silk does hold its beauty, and does give the value and satisfaction that we claim for it?
The very fact that we mark the name on every yard of Suesine Silk mean« a great deal to you. It means that if Suesine Silk disappoints you, or any of your friends, you can always avoid Suesine very easily ever afterward. The fact that we do mark Suesine Silk with the name on every yard proves we are certain that nobody will be disappointed.
Suesine Silk is a fabric for dressy uses or for constant wear,—for every week in the year, and for every day in the week.
For Negligees as well as for Dressy Costumes Suesine Silk proves its Greater Value. No other Silk that wears as well and makes up as exquisitely —costs so little. No other Fabric can give you the Service and the Satisfaction of Suesine.
SUESINE is real silk. Woven inside the pure silk is a fine, strong, long silky filament of Egyptian cotton, — giving double strength and double wear without detracting from the exquisite beauty and fineness of the silk itself. That is the " Suesine Idea." It is ours. Nobody can copy or imitate it.
That is why Suesine, while costing much less than Jap or China silk, gives better sendee, and holds its beauty longer. It proves its better value not only at first sight, but by actual wear.
Suesine does not crack. It does not wear to slits or to pinholes. It does not grow dull or shabby. None of the frauds or faults, or disappointments of ordinary silk are in Suesine Silk.
It wears three times as long as the best China silk, and costs just- half. All of the sumptuous beauty and exquisite charm of the finest and most costly silks are in Suesine Silk. Do not be confused by imitations.—The imitations can not, and can never copy the Suesine RELIABILITY and Suesine Value, which are guaranteed to you when you see the Suesine name on the selvedge.
