ABOUT RHODIA NOTEPADS
The French Orange Notebooks with a Cult Following !
Rhodia is known for high quality, exacting standards and timeless design. It is closely associated with creativity and innovation coupled with tradition. They are particularly loved by the fountain pen community who love the fact they don't bleed, feather or ghost.
The first Rhodia pad was made in 1934 in Lyon. In Lyon there is the Rhône river. People born in this region are called Rhodaniens. The name came from there. The two trees in the logo represent the two brothers, these trees are epiceas (spruce). If you take a look at them, these trees are not identical. They are linked by a line to show that the brothers work together. The brand and the logo were designed by Marie-Antonia, the wife of one of the Verilhac brothers." The family story goes that Marie-Antonia drew the logo sitting at the kitchen table.
In 1934 the company moved from Lyon to Sechilienne near Grenoble in the French alps. The Rhodia Notebook, originally a sideline for Rhodia, was to become its most famous product. It immediately overshadowed other notebooks of the time because of its quality materials and original design of a scored front cover.
The orange cover dates back to the 1934. It remains unchanged to this day.
