UNPARALLELED HERITAGE EXPERTISE SINCE 187
From patinated leather…
S.T.Dupont has relaunched a collection of leather goods featuring patinated leather, the colours and contrasts of which call on the Maison’s very first form of expertise. The art of patina is carried out entirely by hand, lends colours shades and contrasts beyond compare and meticulous attention at every stage.
The art of patina
The art of patina is carried out entirely by hand. Adding to its “Art of Secret”, it involves meticulous attention at every stage.
The process of skin selection is the very first evidence. Only the purest specimens are accepted, which are prepared using a completely natural method of vegetable tanning to reveal the full intensity of the colour. Sourced from mineral pigments only, the colour is then applied with constant care and precision. Like a gentle caress, it heightens the light in its centre and produces the rarest and most precious tones.
This meticulous and remarkable stage enhances the contrasts of each object. Each piece acquires its very own, exclusive shade. More than a signature, this is the essence of S.T. Dupont.
UNPARALLELED HERITAGE EXPERTISE SINCE 1953
…To natural lacquer
In 2014, S.T.Dupont re-released a cult collection of natural lacquer lighters, incorporated unique ancestral techniques and expertise, such as were used in its atelier in 1953, the art of “Popoté”. This stage is deliberately but meticulously performed in an irregular manner to create the Maison’s characteristic cloudy effect.
A legendary signature
Individually hand-crafted the Atelier S.T.Dupont collection is stamped with the old S.T.Dupont logo and the winged wheel hallmark. The date 1953 or 1872, references of the atelier’s creation for each specialization is also inscribed on the products.
A unique Colour for each product
While the procedure remains the same for each piece, the result is always different. Depending on the colour contrasts obtained, the handmade production process gives the product its very own depth and soul.
