Rhodia notebooks

history

The history of the brand began in Lyon with the founding of Papeteries Vérilhac Frères in 1932. Its market extended from France to North Africa. Initially focusing their business on notebooks and stationery, Henri and Robert Vérilhac began manufacturing Rhodia pads (named after their home region, the Rhône Valley) in 1934. Coming from a family of stationery merchants, they put all their expertise into the design of their products. Always at the forefront of innovation, they create high quality models with an impeccable finish.

The Vérilhac brothers adopted the colours orange and black, a combination of elegance, for their famous notepad which has become timeless. This notebook has very specific characteristics that have made it famous for 90 years, in nearly 90 countries around the world. In addition to a fine vellum paper, the notepad is equipped with :

  • a soft, waterproof, scored card cover that folds easily to the back,
  • “Sangrif” header staples: invisible on the reverse side, they prevent any injury or scratches on the desk
  • a cardboard base that holds the pad in place even when not in use
  • microperforated sheets that can be easily detached

In 1997, the Rhodia brand was acquired by the Exacompta Clairefontaine group. Since then, it has adapted to the spirit of the times and brought out notepads in black or white, then in various bright colours. Today, the “brand with two trees” also produces notebooks – with or without spirals – in colours that are always very trendy. The famous Rhodiarama notebook range offers a choice of bright colours. Ballpoint pens, pencils and mechanical pencils complete the collection. Orange of course… but not only!
