Details der Unterseite:


"Handpacked!
Human hands - trained for purposeful work - are better than any precission machine. One cigarette-packing-machine takes away bread and work from 15 (female) handpackers; therefore we have substituted machines by handwork."



"German Quality Product
without any additions - but being instead made only of fine pure oriental tobaccos in a tasteful blend of best shipments from Macedonia, Bulgaria and Turkey."
