The Moleskine notebook is the heir and successor to the legendary notebook used by artists and thinkers over the past two centuries: among them Vincent Van Gogh, Pablo Picasso, Ernest Hemingway and Bruce Chatwin. 
A simple black rectangle that held the sketches, notes, stories and ideas that would one day become famous paintings or the pages of beloved books. 
In the mid-1980s, the notebook that Bruce Chatwin had nicknamed “moleskine” became increasingly scarce and then disappeared completely. 
In 1997, a small Milanese publisher brought the legendary notebook back to life, choosing this literary name to revive an extraordinary tradition of creativity and self-expression.
From the creative minds of the past to the makers of the future: today’s Moleskine objects are blank canvases that invite you to continue the story.
