Moleskine was created as a brand in 1997, bringing back to life 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.
Today, the brand Moleskine encompasses a family of nomadic objects: notebooks, diaries, journals, bags, writing instruments and reading accessories, dedicated to our mobile identity. Indispensable companions to the creative professions and the imagination of our times: they are intimately tied to the digital world.
The company grew out of the experience of Modo&Modo, a small Milanese publisher that in 1997 created the Moleskine trademark. In April 2013 Moleskine was listed on the Borsa Italiana, the Italian stock exchange, and then in October 2016 was purchased by the Belgian group D'Ieteren. Moleskine is a creative company enjoying continuing growth. It has about 400 employees and a vast network of partners and consultants. Its home office is in Milan, Italy.
