STORY BEHIND

The business was developed in 1923 by Alfred Dunhill after he inherited his father’s saddlery business on London’s Euston Road.  Alfred Dunhill, responding to the growing demand for cars, developed a line of luxury automobile accessories called ‘Dunhill’s Motorities’.  This first collection included car horns and lamps, leather overcoats, goggles, picnic sets and timepieces.
