Russian Flax and Hemp Bale Seals from

Zyrardow in Poland

 

 ZYRARDOW in Poland was the home of Europe's largest Linen Mill established by Hielle & Dittrich.

   Karl August Dittrich was born on 30 September 1819 in Leipzig and together with Karl Teodor Hielle he founded the company Hielle & Dittrich in Schönlinde (Krasna Lipa in the northern part of the Czech Republic). The town of Zyrardow is situated in the heart of Poland, at the south-west part of Mazowieckie Voivodeship, 45 km from Warsaw and 90 km from Łódź, where Dittrich expanded a huge linen factory which they bought in auction from the Lubienski brothers who had established it as a textile factory in 1833. One of directors of the factory was French inventor Philippe de Girard (from Lourmarin). The town developed during the 19th century into the most significant textile mill town in Poland. In honour of Girard, Ruda Guzowska was renamed Zyrardow, a toponym derived of the polonised spelling of Girard's name.  Philippe Henri de Girard was a French engineer and inventor of the first flax spinning frame in 1810
