"Merricord is the name for a 36 inch wide whale [sic] corduroy manufactured by Merrimack Mfg Co Lowell Mass sold exclusively by us. This fine light weight fabric is so constructed as to possess the draping and clinging qualities that are essential for women's garments and is especially popular for women's kimonos and robes. Great care is used on Merricord in the dyeing and finishing so as to produce the most brilliant and high lustre shades and Merricord shades are as fast to light and washing tests as can be produced Merricord stands for quality which is our motto Quality first then price." -From a Lawrence and Co. advertisement in Dry Goods Economist 1922.
