Franz Marfurt launched his brand in the 70’s, associating his name with his home town Lucerne--the city of light. His first creations featured symbols such as the wing, the star, and the cross which have accompanied him throughout his career. Inspired by his travels on the trans Siberian railway which lead him over the Mount Athos and through Africa he created his first “Voyageur” bracelet. This bracelet which was originally inspired by the elephant hair bracelets from the 70’s has become one of many iconic Marfurt designs. Still today each bracelet is hand crafted by Mr. Marfurt personally in Zurich, Switzerland.
