Let’s start off with the fella on the packets
In the 1800s, a French soldier (also known as a “Zouave”) had his claypipe broken by a bullet in battle. He had the brilliant idea of rolling his tobacco in a piece of paper, torn from a bag of gunpowder.
That was the birth of the first roll-your-own smoke, and as a tribute to that creative soldier, the image of ‘Le Zouave’ has been part of all Zig-Zag cigarette papers for over 100 years. The way the papers were later folded, or interleaved together in a zig-zag manner, gave birth to the name of these premium cigarette papers.
Zig-Zag offers a full range of smoking accessories – see www.zigzag-papers.net for details.
