DMC Embroidery and Sewing Thread

This is a post-script to my earlier book review of Facing The Lion, Memoirs of a Young Girl in Nazi Europe.

The town that Simone lived in was Mulhouse, and Mulhouse is the home of, Dolfuss-Mieg and Company (DMC) known for, printed cotton material, called Indienne and better known to us here in the States and I'm sure all over the world for their embroidery thread, DMC.

Dolfuss, Mieg, and Koechlin were leading brands in Europe - their factories were the first to institute social measures for their employees. This is were Simone's father worked as a print designer. So now I know what DMC stands for, I found this information in the apendix of the book.
