Episode #20- Clairefontaine vs. Rhodia paper
Clairefontaine has been making paper in France since 1858, and Rhodia has been making paper (also in France) since 1932. In 1997, Clairefontaine bought Rhodia. Their products have been long established so the brands are separate, but Clairefontaine is the parent company. The paper in the Clairefontaine notebooks and Rhodia pads is all made by Clairefontaine, but it's not the same paper.
Check them all out for yourself and see what you might like now that you know what's up with both brands!
A fine selection of both Clairefontaine and Rhodia products are available at The Goulet Pen Company, as well as other fine retailers.
