Canut Intl.

Our books are subject to peer review by recognized authorities in the field. We intend to diversify our translation works from the newly emerging nations and regions.

We owe our name to the Lyonnais silk workers in France who rose up for minimum wages for the first time in the history of mankind. The Canut revolts (French: Révolte des canuts) is the collective name for the major revolts by Lyonnais silk workers (French: canuts) which occurred in 1831, 1834 and 1848. They were among the first well-defined worker uprisings of the period known as the Industrial Revolution.
