Puiforcat (now owned by Hermes) was founded in 1820 by Émile Puiforcat who worked predominantly as a cutler with his brother Pierre-Joseph-Marie Puiforcat and their maternal cousin Jean-Baptiste Fuchs at rue Chapon in the Marais district of Paris. In 1857 Émile Puiforcat along with Jean-Baptiste Fuchs registered the company’s hallmark, composed as a diamond shape centered by a pocket knife in profile, flanked by the initials E and P (for Émile Puiforcat), In 1892 Laure Emilie Puiforcat granddaughter of the firm’s founder married Louis-Victor Tabouret (son of François-Louis Tabouret). Four years later in 1902 Louis-Victor assumed management of the firm and then in 1915 he changed his surname by decree to Puiforcat-Tabouret. Jean Élisée Puiforcat, Son of Louis-Victor Tabouret-Puiforcat and the Father of the Art Deco movement, entered the family business in 1918.
