Waxed linen thread in 30m spools

The name, Fil Au Chinois, dates back to a period in France when anything Oriental was fashionable. This interest for the Orient became very popular with the expedition to Egypt in 1798, by Bonaparte (the future Napoléon), Algeria's conquest by France (1830) and twenty-five years, later the opening up of China and Japon only reinforced this interest. The beginning of the brand Au Chinois was at the heart of this cultural movement. The idea was a success as it permitted the creation of an easily identifiable and now legendary character.
