  • Description

    Film showing how powder puffs are made.

    Hand operated machines cut fabric into squares. Another machine compresses the squares and cuts circles from them. Women at machines sew the circles together then make pouches for the puff to go into. A cord is added. A woman takes the pouch from her handbag and "powders her nose" in front of a mirror.
