The Cahier is a classic in the Moleskine portfolio; layout and quality have proven their resistance along the years. These qualities make the notebook a useful and longevity companion, up to the present day.
Since decades, the legendary notebooks by Moleskine are much desired by artists and writers. But also all the other people profit from the Know-How of the Italian manufacturer: The cardboard cover is equipped with the famous filament hold that keep the books safely closed. The last 16 pages are removable and the Cahier possesses an interior pocket for loose notice pages.
The Moleskine Cahier is available in a lined, a chequered and a blank edition – all of them with the known high paper quality. Three different sizes always ensure enough space for all notes.
Originally, the notebooks were produced by a little French bookbinder who sold them to interested people in Paris. Back in these days, the books didn't even have an own name. Slowly but surely, they disappeared from the market because the producer shut down his business. In the 1980s the small black books were no longer available.
Soon afterwards, Bruce Chatwin talked about the story of his notebook in his book "Dream Paths". He nicknamed it Moleskine. Moreover, Chatwin bought all books of this kind he could find afterwards. In 1998, a small Milan company took over Chatwin's idea and brought the books back onto the market - now known as the Moleskine notebooks.
Meanwhile, the name Moleskine is a well-established brand. The books, calendars and notebooks accompany people all over the world.
