For 150 years, the exceptional objects of S.T. Dupont have brought together French expertise and art of living to accompany great moments of life.

At the end of the 19th century, Maison founder Simon Tissot Dupont decoded the desires of the new globetrotting elite. He set about fulfilling the demands of the greats of this society, crafting luxurious multi-compartment travel cases for figures like Napoleon III and Empress Eugenie.

S.T. Dupont became synonymous with the Art of offering and passing along.

For the great pleasure-seekers of every period since 1872—from Queen Elizabeth II to Andy Warhol, Pablo Picasso, Alfred Hitchcock, Marylin Monroe, Leonardo di Caprio and many more—owning a Dupont has meant displaying a personal object, tailor-made and specially crafted by a great master artisan to fulfil the client’s every desire.

To this day, S.T. Dupont strives to meet its clients’ ever-exacting desires, always masterfully combining craftsmanship with innovation. S.T. Dupont designed the first luxury, solid gold petrol lighter. The Dupont lighter went on to become a style icon of the 20th century with its iconic and famous “Cling” sound. 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.

The Maison knows how to adapt to the times through myriad of creative and innovative concepts: being the leader of the most exquisite lighters in the world, creating the only lighter using the twin flame on the Grand S.T. Dupont or the amusing sophistication of the Casino complication lighter.

Located in the heart of the French Alps, S.T. Dupont Manufacture’s Art also expresses itself on Writing Instruments. The Art of Writing was born from Jackie Kennedy request, who wanted a beautiful, yet simple and elegant writing instrument that would match her Ligne 1 lighter. Strong with its 150 years of excellence, the Maison is bringing back to life its art of travel through modern and fresh Leather Goods collections.
