History Behind The Moleskine Notebook
Moleskine is an Italian brand that was established in 1997 with the intent of breathing life back into a unique style of Parisian notebooks popularised during the 19th-20th centuries. We're led to believe that popular artists of this time period, such as Vincent van Gogh and Ernest Hemingway, used this design of notebook.
The name 'Moleskine' originates from a Bruce Chatwin novel. Despite what the name may suggest, no, Moleskine notebooks are not made from the skin of a mole. Rest assure, they're actually a vegan-friendly product.
