About Swarovski
Swarovski, now a fifth-generation family-run business, was founded in 1895 by visionary inventor Daniel Swarovski. After completing a two-year apprenticeship at his father's glass-cutting factory in northern Bohemia (now part of the Czech Republic), Daniel Swarovski I patented his design for a machine to aid in cutting of crystal in 1892. An interest in precision-cut lead crystal led him to found Swarovski in 1895 in Wattens, Tyrol, Austria, in order to utilize the local hydroelectricity in his new factory.

From creating the iridescent aurora borealis crystals alongside French designer Christian Dior in 1956 to inventing the "crystal mesh" (a metallic fabric composed of tightly woven crystals) seen in designs by Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana, and Louis Vuitton in 1993, Swarovski continues to maintain the creativity and innovation it is known for and to flourish as a leader in cut crystal for fashion and home.
