Wonderful vintage Kensitas cigarette woven silks - c.1930s

These beautiful silk flowers were given away free in Kensitas Cigarette packets in the 1930s.
They came in a little card with a description of the flower and history.

The silk flowers I found do not have the cards but they would look superb incorporated into a quilt, patchwork or on a bag or cushion.
These eight silks will be listed at the Rag Rescue website tomorrow Tuesday 18th January
