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.
