DMC

More than 250 years ago, in 1746, art and commerce came together thanks to the initiative of Jean-Henri DOLLFUS, who founded a joint venture with two other young businessmen Jean-Jacques SCHMALZER and Samuel KOECHLIN. Taking advantage of the enthusiasm of the time for printed fabrics, and the artistic talent of Jean-Henri, they became pioneers in Europe in the industrial production of hand-printed Indian prints.

Subsequently, and for many years, the company engaged in a single activity: printing on fabrics. The two brothers Jean-Henri and Jean DOLLFUS manage it together.

Long before the term globalization was on everyone's lips, these two men already had an international ambition for their company, and exported their fabrics around the world.

Towards the end of the 18th century, Jean-Henri DOLLFUS 'nephew, Daniel DOLLFUS, took over the management of the family business. In the spring of 1800, he married Anne-Marie MIEG, combining his wife's name with his own, a common practice at the time. During that same year, he gave his company its new corporate name DOLLFUS-MIEG & Compagnie, or DMC.

In 1818 it was Jean DOLLFUS-MIEG's turn to take over his father's business, focusing on quality, product marketing and service.

In 1850, while studying in Leeds, England, Jean DOLLFUS-MIEG's son discovered a process invented by the chemist JOHN MERCER (mercerizing), which he applied to his yarn, and which modifies the fibber and gives it more strength, longevity and a silky look.

Also, during this century, DMC forged strong ties with the famous embroiderer, Thérèse de DILLMONT. The friendship between this talented woman and Jean DOLLFUS-MIEG pushes her to move to Dornach, a village near Mulhouse, where she founded her own embroidery school, with the support of DMC.

The greatest work produced by Thérèse is his Encyclopédie des Ouvrages de Dames, published in 1886, which was translated and marketed in 17 countries.

The two world wars halted production, and in 1961 the company merged with THIRIEZ & CARTIER BRESSON. The new company retains the name of DMC, but adopts the logo of THIRIEZ & CARTIER BRESSON, the horse head that has become famous today.

The DMC Group is currently an international organization that manufactures yarns and other by-products for consumers and the textile industry. The company’s commitment to quality and creativity remains as strong today as it was in the 18th century. The motto of the Dollfus family, which dates back more than 2 centuries, has retained all its authenticity:

TENUI FILO MAGNUM TEXITUR OPUS - "A work of art is born from a simple thread "

Today DMC is an international group that exports to more than 60 countries on 5 continents. 70% of its turnover is made in the production plant of Mulhouse, in Alsace. Its main business remains the manufacture of yarns for the consumer and textile industry, as well as various derived products.

At all times, superior product quality, customer satisfaction, social responsibility, innovation and creativity, as well as consideration of environmental constraints remain the shared core values ​​that guide DMC in its evolution, in the service of consumers.
