CRAFTSMANSHIP & PASSING DOWN KNOWLEDGE
Since its foundation in 1847, Cartier has always been committed to ensuring the passing down and preservation of its expertise and developing new skills while respecting the traditions of excellence.
Preserve, innovate and share: that is the mission of the Maison des Métiers d’Art.
From watchmaking to jewellery, from leather goods to perfume, Cartier’s style is inextricably linked to its expertise.
To ensure the excellence of its creations, Cartier has acquired the production tools that enable it to control the entire production chain: a Watch Manufacture and a Jewellery Manufacture.
To provide training for its craftsmen and maintain Cartier's exacting standards, the Maison has created the Cartier Jewellery Institute and the Cartier Watchmaking Institute.
ARTIST MEETS ARTISAN
When Cartier seeks to showcase the stones not used by its High Jewellery Workshop, it relies on the expertise of its craftsmen and the talent of great artists.
