Rhodia Orange Notepads

Need a stylist notepad?

We highly recommend anything from Rhodia, oui, oui! A bit of history for you . . . The paper company, Rhodia, was founded in 1932 in Lyon, France by two brothers, Henri and Robert Verlhac. In 1934, the company moved to the French Alps and the production of their notepads began. The name “Rhodia” comes from the Rhone, a river that flows by Lyon and divides the Alps from the Massif Central. It has been said that the two fir trees on the cover symbolize the two founding brothers. The orange cover dates back to the 1930s and the design has never changed. The notebooks and pads are popular among artists, designers, and writers who love the grids, smooth paper, and the iconic cover. Personally, we think these brothers had it going on!
