Rizla rolling papers were created in 1865 the Lacroix family decided to use rice instead of tissue for rolling papers. Thus, inspired by themselves, they named the rolling paper Rizla. "Riz" referring to the rice paper that was used at the time, and "la" a shortened version of their name. By the 1900's Rizla's were so popular, they spread from France across Europe and the United States. Unfortunately, they have been discontinuing several popular brands in the United States. We hope someday they may bring them back.
As of November 14, 2012, Commonwealth Tobacco has discontinued production of Rizla Green Cut Corners Singlewide.
