Tonkin floss polyester/gold lurex strand

Tonkin embroidery thread has been produced for a long time by Ets. Toulemonde, but it was mainly sold to industrials and had not been named. One day I saw this thread when I visited their works and was convinced that it would be perfect for embroidery. A few weeks later, this was done but we had to find a name, which is never easy. After much thought, I found it amusing to give a nod to the Fil Au Chinois brand and find a name reflecting the Orientalism that was popular in days gone by. Tonkin is the name of an ex French protectorate which was part of French Indochina in 1884.
