How could textiles win a war?

“Behind Enemy Lines: Evasion and Escape Aids of World War II”, curated by World Shibori Network member, Robert Baldwin, is a wonderful visual insight into the military’s use of linguistics and textiles as a form of negotiation and rescue. Author of “Last Hope: The Blood Chit Story,” Robert will be featuring various “blood chits” in the exhibition, which were used as escape aids in World War II. Be sure to check out the exhibition to see the pieces in person!
