The History of the DMC Embroidery Floss Skein

In 1746, Jean Henri DOLLFUS and two Alsatian entrepreneurs took advantage of the fashion for painted fabrics and became pioneers in the industrial production of “Indian,” hand-painted printed fabrics. DMC began producing sewing, embroidery, and crochet threads. Daniel Dolfus married Anne-Marie Mieg, who became part of the company and an integral contributor to this female-oriented business, and thus DOLLFUS MIEG & Co was born. In 1850, DMC discovered chemist John Mercer’s invention of, “mercerising,”—the treating of cotton thread with caustic soda to give it strength, longevity, and a silky and bright appearance. Through mercerization, “DMC Spécial Mouliné” or embroidery floss was born and became the world’s most sold embroidery thread. It remains renowned by every embroiderer for its technical qualities, ease of use, and incredible range of colors.
