Cigar factory Dannemann was established in 1872, and long-filler cigars continue to be rolled
by experienced female hands. Women are associated with the image of Anastacia, a woman
of African descent, enslaved and cruelly treated by her owners by being forced to wear a
muzzle-like facemask, which prevented her from speaking her native language.
