The Moleskine brand was created in 1997, bringing back to life the legendary notebook used by artists and thinkers over the past two centuries, such as Vincent van Gogh, Pablo Picasso, Ernest Hemingway, and Bruce Chatwin.
Today, Moleskine identifies a vast family of paper objects, smart notebooks and apps, bags, books, travel and digital device accessories and writing tools. Moleskine objects, both analog and digital, connect the owner to a heritage in art, literature and cultural and geographical exploration. They form an ecosystem of tools and services that provide for and connect the visionaries of the past with the makers of the future.
The company began life as Modo&Modo, a small Milanese publisher that, in 1997, brought the original notebook back to life and established the Moleskine® trademark. Moleskine Srl went on to acquire the worldwide trademark rights for the brand in January 2007 and was listed on the Italian Stock Exchange in 2013. The brand was acquired and delisted by D’Ieteren at the end of 2016.
Moleskine is a creative company enjoying continuing growth. It has about 450 employees and a vast network of partners and consultants. Its home office is in Milan, Italy.
