Hi from James Finniss,

Rhodia Notepad

We are pleased and excited to welcome Rhodia, Clairefontaine and J. Herbin to our range! Whenever someone asks "What is a good notepad for fountain pens?" you will always see responses of Rhodia and Clairefontaine since they are among the finest papers in the world!

Notebooks are available in dot-grid, line-grid, ruled and the more unusual Seyes or French Ruled which is  a fantastic guide to touching up your handwriting.

Clairefontaine (parent company of Rhodia) make an exceptionally smooth, 90gsm paper that is ideal for fountain pens with no bleeding, feathering or show-through. The paper is silky smooth to write on and shows off the sheening and shading qualities of ink.

Rhodia also make very fine paper that has slightly more texture than Clairefontaine and perfect for fountain pens and daily use.
