  • During the years of 1912-15 tobacco companies secured tobacco silks outside packages of cigarettes and small cigars by a paper band. In some cases they were inserted in the package. In other cases coupons collected from other products were redeemable for tobacco silks. Women were encouraged to use the felts to make various products such as wall hangings, pillow cases, etc.
