150 YEARS OF KNOW-HOW
To this day, S.T. Dupont strives to meet its clients’ ever-exacting desires, always masterfully combining craftsmanship with innovation.
The Maison knows how to adapt to the times through a myriad of creative concepts, offering delightful surprises at every turn: a secret compartment for Audrey Hepburn’s handbag, the stunningly aerodynamic Défi pen, the twin flame of the Grand S.T. Dupont or the amusing sophistication of the complication lighter. This distinctive artistic craftsmanship of S.T. Dupont has been continually enriched with the most refined rarities in the world, such as Chinese lacquer, precious metals, and finest leathers. Within its Faverges workshops at the heart of the French Alps, the Maison’s master artisans shape their exceptional objects with pride and joy. They are the ones responsible for the famous “Cling” sound that is so characteristic of a S.T. Dupont lighter, symbolising the quality and joy that it brings.
From the body to the tank, S.T. Dupont lighters are fashioned entirely from one block of solid brass, resulting in a hard-wearing object, adorned with fine materials, that can withstand the test of time. In its constant quest for innovation, S.T. Dupont launched a new line of torch flame lighters in 2000: light and ergonomic, they ensure efficient lighting in all circumstances. Handcrafted in France, the iconic lighters of S.T. Dupont require 150 handmade operations and 60 hours of precision work.
With the beauty of their lines, the precious nature of their materials, and their easy handling - more than ever, since 1973, S.T. Dupont writing instruments are exceptional objects destined to give pleasure to their users. Fashioned from metal to give superior strength, they are shaped in the hands of our master craftsmen over the course of 150 separate processes. The metalwork, the application of the lacquer and the combination of exceptional materials are the result of invaluable know-how handed down from generation to generation. S.T. Dupont writing instruments beautifully celebrate an art of living that is also the art of writing... the story of your life.
Just as Simon Tissot-Dupont decided to create the most beautiful luggage of his day, our craftsmen select the finest leathers, exclusively from France, Italy, Spain, according to the strictest criteria: evenness, suppleness, strength and finesse. All the processes, from cutting to sewing, are performed by hand with meticulous attention paid to every detail for perfect finishing. Three emblematic leathers catch our attention. Line D leather takes its inspiration from S.T. Dupont’s very first collection “Fauve”. Line D leather is also available in a grained version for a more contemporary finish. Finally, hand-patinated Atelier leather, alludes to the Maison’s ancestral expertise.
For almost forty years, S.T. Dupont has been dressing men with elegant belts and accessories. Peerless craftsmanship turns cufflinks, tie bars, money clips and key rings into precious jewels. These hand-polished, machined, or crafted products are a statement of slender, pure, and minimalist design. S.T. Dupont also offers a wide range of belts, adorning classic and casual wear with extra style and elegance. The search for perfection is found in the smallest details.
