Other comments:
The reverse of the silk on the left has a printed label which would have been used only at the Exposition; whilst the silk on the right has a normal Stevens advertising back label:

reverse label on silk above on the left
which was probably only used at the Exposition
reverse label of silk above on the left
reverse label on the silk above on the right
which was a standard STEVENS advertising label
standard Stevens advertising lable on reverse of silk above on the right

This link between manufacturer and the back label though is of importance.
This site records a bookmark still attached to the stiff backing paper with the exact same printing as the portrait above on the left - sb4: 1492 - 1892 400th Anniversary in Commemoration of the discovery of America 1492 / . . .. This bookmark however has the JJ Mannion credit woven on the reverse.

It is a long held believe that Mannion was an agent for Stevens, and this adds support to that.
