The Iconic French Rhodia Notepad
Rhodia notepads deliver many things; Quality and irreproachable finishes with real paper expertise. A combination of inventiveness and innovations (with water-resistant, foldover covers, “Sangrif” technology and micro-perforated tear-off sheets). A desire for new design whilst reliably orange & black. Dynamic, yet elegant. It is these componants which create the very essence of the Rhodia notepad, a traditional yet contemporary object since 1934.
The RHODIA® name is derived from the Rhône River near where we were founded. The people from this region who helped create the first notepad are known as Rhodanians, which is reflected in our brand name. Our logo provides a direct link with the industry, with the two joined fir trees symbolising the company’s founding brothers, Henri and Robert Vérilhac. This logo was reportedly drawn spontaneously in a single stroke by Henri Vérilhac’s wife Antonia, as if it was already accomplished. This icon still embodies the essence of the brand, to such an extent that RHODIA® is often referred to using the figure of speech “the brand with the two fir trees”.
