I know these aren't much, just trying to figure out if they are real before using them in a project.

The colors in the photo seem much brighter than they actually are in person. I took the pics in direct sunlight, and it makes them look very bright.

The one on the right looks like it came from the top panel of a camo cap … it has had the artificial centre seam stitching unpicked.

Thanks guys. I'm going to pick up the rest of this stuff. Hopefully there will be enough variation from these small pieces to get a good selection of original cammo specimens.

Agreed Not cap but zelt.
Pretty typical mid war mix of fabrics.

Yes, according to the source, these were all recovered from a rag-picker in the 1950s, a variety of zeltbahn scrap, presumably from some factory. It's an odd mix of different patterns. More will be on the way, I'll send more pics when they arrive.

Make key rings from the scrap.
