Emperor Napoleon III and Empress Eugénie were among S.T. Dupont’s first customers, quickly followed by the European elite. Over the years, the elegance of the range and mastery of technique is evidence of world class luxury leather goods produced by the finest artisans.
Handmade French Luxury Leather Goods | Business & Travel
In 1872, Simon Tissot Dupont established a luggage and leather goods workshop, and began to produce a steady stream of exceptional products for the highest social circles.
His vision was the Art of Travel, accompanied by trunks and luggage with a personal touch in every detail.
Emperor Napoleon III and Empress Eugénie were among S.T. Dupont’s first customers, quickly followed by the European elite. It soon became essential to travel with S.T. Dupont luggage.
People loved the fine skins, sourced exclusively in France, Italy and Spain, and the perfect finishes S.T. Dupont achieved. They marveled at the workshop’s manufacturing secrets.
Three emblematic leathers catch our attention. Diamond leather, tanned using diamond powder — a process invented by the founder of S.T. Dupont — offers a mirror-finish brilliance and is available only upon request. The iconic Contrast leather of the first S.T. Dupont trunks has been chosen for various essential accessories, with the timeless elegance of its finely veined grain. Elysée leather, a legendarily smooth calfskin, takes its inspiration from S.T. Dupont’s very first collection of small leather goods “Fauve”, and is available in black or brown.
