Printed textile adhesive tape called Duct tape or duck tape

Interestingly, this tape wasn't invented by an expert but a simple woman.It is said that Mrs. Vesta Stoudt wanted to have a waterproof textile tape to seal boxes of ammunition. She worked in the ammunition facility during World War II and saw that sealing ammunition boxes with a thin wax paper tape was not going to work. In the beginning, nobody wanted to listen to her. So, she wrote President Theodore Roosevelt a letter explaining her idea. Roosevelt was so enthusiastic he passed the idea on to a company that later became the famous Johnson & Johnson.
