Images from La Kabiline from the Armes des Villes de France trade card series.
La Kabiline was a trade mark for the Ets Legris (later Legris & Son) company from Versailles, which existed from the 19th century up to 1962.
Named after Kabylie, a region in the north of Algeria known for its dyes, La Kabiline offered the European consumer a wealth of bold hues for household/textile dyes and the cards were probably included in the packages.
La Kabiline issued a large poster (57 cm high, approx 1 m wide) in three parts, two parts with the (uncut) cards, the third one with advertisement in the middle. The reverse states that one could obtain the three parts to get the complete series. Unlike the normal cards of La Kabiline, the uncut cards on the poster do not have the advertisement on the reverse. See the images below.
