Brand Zig - Zag

History of Zig - Zag cigarettes

In the nineteenth century, during the battle of Sevastopol, a Zouave (a soldier in a French infantry unit) had his clay pipe broken by a bullet. He got the brilliant idea of rolling tobacco in a piece of paper torn from his bag of gunpowder. By so doing, he invented the world's first cigarette.

In 1894 Maurice and Jacques Braunstein invented the process of interleaving papers and called their papers Zig-Zag, the term used to describe the interleaving process. In 1900, Zig-Zag was awarded a gold medal at the Universal Exposition in Paris. Its quality and concept are the keys of this success. For 100 years, as a tribute to that soldier, the image of the Zouave dressed in his bright uniform has been used on all Zig-Zag's premium products.

Just as that soldier invented the cigarette as an alternative to his broken pipe, more and more people today are seeking an alternative to high-priced factory-made cigarettes. Many of them are discovering, to their great pleasure, the enormous advantages of using Zig-Zag's fine products to make their own better cigarettes.


Zig - Zag cigarettes are produced in USA, long (100 mm) and king size (85 mm), 20 cigarettes in a pack, hard and soft pack.
