For nearly 145 years, S.T. Dupont has continued to reinforce and renew its expertise in high class writing instruments, high quality leather goods, lighters, accessories, modern eyewear and fragrances. Originally from Savoy, Simon Tissot-Dupont settled in Paris as a trunk maker. As the founder of the dynasty, S.T. Dupont owes its initials to him. This legendary know-how, combined with an entrepreneurial spirit true to the founder, contribute to perpetuating the international aura and worldwide recognition of the House that embodies a Fine French Craftsmanship. S.T.Dupont continues to create through four arts: the Art of Travelling, the Art of Fire, the Art of Writing and the Art of Seduction. S.T.Dupont preserves the expertise of the master craftsmen, who inherit the skills passed down from generation to generation.
