In 1894 the Braunstein brothers perfected a packaging process that allowed the papers to automatically dispense from the booklet one at a time. They patented their invention and named the new product “Zig Zag” after the Z shape the interleaved papers make when pulled from the package. This revolutionary process became a new packaging standard that’s still in use today.
In 1900, Zig Zag papers gained international recognition when they were awarded a gold medal at the Universal Exposition in Paris. Six years later, Zig Zag was registered as a trademark and found fame all over the world. During the 1960s and 70s, Zig Zag’s popularity grew across the United States and Le Zouave became an icon of the counterculture.
Perfection takes time. For over 130 years, Zig Zag has perfected the craft of making papers. Their papers are made in France using natural flax plant fibres, which provide strength, fineness and a slow burn. These Zig Zag rolling papers are made of 100% natural Arabic gum. All Zig Zag papers have a thin gum line to provide a perfect seal – every time. Derived from the sap of the African acacia tree, the natural properties of Arabic gum provide a consistent seal without impacting the taste of your smoke. Each paper goes through a complex watermarking process which provides a distinctive sign of superior quality. These fine quality rolling papers are a classic.
These Zig Zag Orange papers are licorice flavour and contain 50 papers per pack.
