During World War II, the military needed nylon for parachutes, and cotton and wool for uniforms, leaving civilians with fabric shortages. Women often sewed their own clothes and quilts, and repurposed older items. These earrings are based on an artifact in The Arsenal of Democracy exhibit at The National WWII Museum.
