Commonthread by DMC
More than 250 years ago, in 1746 art and business joined hands when the 23-year-old artist, Jean-Henri Dollfus started a joint venture with two equally young entrepreneurs Jean-Jacques Schmalzer and Samuel Koechlin. Capitalizing on the fashion trend at the time of painted fabrics and Jean-Henri's talent, they were the very first to manufacture hand painted Indian prints in Europe. That same year he gave the company the new trade name of DOLLFUS-MIEG & Compagnie, or D.M.C.
