The history of Harpo begins in 1971 when Gérard "Harpo" Nadaud, 25, working in the world of clothing, discovered through a close relationship, Native American craftsmanship. It's love at first sight. He was drawn to these jewels steeped in history, the main element of which is turquoise which, for Native Americans, happens to be a magical and protective stone.[...]
This is how he finds himself making several trips to the American Great West, from New Mexico to Nevada to learn more about this Native American craft. At the time, the jewelry he brought back from his travels was sold to a few professionals but, over the years, success gained momentum and his showroom became a must-see for turquoise lovers.
In the late 1990s, he opened his iconic Parisian boutique dedicated to Native American art, and Harpo has enjoyed worldwide success and renown ever since.
