The Moleskine Story
The Moleskine notebook is the heir and successor to the legendary notebook used by artists and thinkers over the past two centuries: among them Vincent van Gogh, Pablo Picasso, Ernest Hemingway, and Bruce Chatwin. The original notebook was a simple black rectangle with rounded corners, an elastic page-holder, and an internal expandable pocket: a nameless object with a simple perfection all its own. The little black notebook was produced for over a century by a small French bookbinder that supplied the stationery shops of Paris.
Moleskine was recreated as a brand in 1997, bringing back to life the legendary notebook. A trusted and handy travel companion, the nameless black notebook holds invaluable sketches, notes, stories, and ideas that will one day become a famous painting or the page of a beloved book. Today, Moleskine is esteemed by the modern avant garde, a community of creative thinking and digital citizens.
From the original notebook, the Moleskine family has grown to encompass a range of stationery objects: notebooks, diaries, journals, bags, writing instruments and reading accessories, dedicated to our individual pursuit of creativity . These tools are indispensable companions to the creative professions and the imagination of our times.
Moleskine is found in offices, backpacks, pockets, and workspaces around the world. The flexible and brilliantly simple tools are essential for everyday use, ultimately becoming an integral part of our personality. The adventure of Moleskine continues to widen, and its still-blank pages will tell the rest of the story.
The Moleskine family of objects represents a perfect blend of creativity and order, digital and analog.
