The Cahier is a classic in the Moleskine portfolio; layout and quality have proven their staying power over the decades. These qualities still make the notebook a useful and popular companion today.
The legendary notebooks by Moleskine have been very popular with artists and writers for decades. However, other people too profit from the knowledge of the Italian manufacturer: The cardboard cover has the well-known filament hold which keeps the books safely closed. The last 16 pages are removable and the Cahier has an inner pocket for loose notes pages.
The Moleskine Cahier is available in a lined, a graph paper and a blank edition: all of them have the familiar high-quality paper. Three different sizes ensure that there is always enough space for all notes.
The Moleskine boos can look back on a long tradition: The Moleskine notebooks, for almost two centuries, have served creatives, artists and thinkers such as Vincent van Gogh, Pablo Picasso and Ernest Hemingway as important companions for their thoughts and concepts
The black books were originally produced by a small French bookbinders, who sold them to clients in Paris: the books didn’t have their own name at this time. The producer stopped production in 1986 and the books disappeared.
Soon afterwards, Bruce Chatwin talked about the story of his notebook in his book "The Songlines" and he gave it the nickname “Moleskine”. In addition, Chatwin bought all the editions of the small notebook which he could find. A small Milanese company took up Chatwin’s thoughts in 1998 and officially brought the books back on the market under the name Moleskine. The rest is history...
Meanwhile, the name Moleskine is a well-established brand. The different books, calendars and notebooks appearing under this name accompany people during their day all over the world.
