Mascotte is originally a Dutch
brand. In 1858, Mignot & De Block BV, a cigar
and cigarette factory from Eindhoven
, was established. At the end of the Second World War
, rolling paper was in short supply and could not be imported. Frank Mignot found the solution for this problem by using the same paper a regular Bible was printed on for rolling cigarettes. This resulted in the first Mascotte rolling papers that still exist today.
Nowadays, the Mascotte headquarters can still be found in Eindhoven. The cigarette shells are produced in France, Germany and Austria.
In 2002 Mascotte merged with the German company Gizeh and is now part of the Gizeh group.
