Waxed linen thread by trusted and historical French brand Fils au Chinois, founded in 1847.

I love using this thread for slow stitching, embroidery and quilting as well as beaded necklaces, bracelets, bookbinding, leatherwork and tons of DIY projects.

Made from flax, the strands are twisted together to make a smooth, resistant thread. It’s passed through a starch bath that includes beeswax.

The entire 23-color collection is now available in the shop.
