A Brief History of Clipper Lighters and Flamagas

Clipper lighters have sparked up the lives of smokers since 1972! Let's take a puff and reminisce about how these trusty torchbearers came to be.

It all started in 1971 when Enric Sardà designed the Clipper lighter in Barcelona, Spain - a region renowned for fine smoking culture.

After over a decade of research and development, Flamagas finally unveiled the original Clipper windproof lighter in 1972. It was the first factory dedicated solely to manufacturing refillable plastic lighters. What a milestone!

Clippers quickly caught on with smokers who dug their cheap, long-lasting, and uniquely repairable and refillable designs. The iconic flint holder that doubles as a poker? Genius!

Flamagas steadily expanded production, launching dedicated plants in India (2000) and China (2003). By 2012, Clipper was celebrating its 40th anniversary as an international staple.

Today, Clippers are coveted for their retro vibe, funky custom graphics, and steadfast reputation. Barcelona-born, smoker-approved, these iconic lighters have sparked joy and conversation for generations.

With cutting-edge safety features, quality assurance, and specialty parts engineered by Flamagas, Clippers are built to last. That's why smokers worldwide keep flipping their lids for these classics decade after decade!
