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.
A trusted and handy travel companion, the nameless black notebook held invaluable sketches, notes, stories, and ideas that would one day become famous paintings or the pages of beloved books. Today, the name 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.
Since January 2007, Moleskine has also become the name of the company that owns the worldwide trademark rights for the brand. Moleskine SpA creates, produces, and distributes not only the well-known notebooks and their various offshoots, but also a series of objects for the creativity of the contemporary nomad. The company grew out of the experience of Modo&Modo, a small Milanese publisher that in 1997 created the Moleskine trademark, rediscovering and renewing an extraordinary tradition. In the fall of 2006, Modo&Modo was purchased by SGCapital Europe, now Syntegra Capital, with the objective of fully developing the potential of the Moleskine brand.
Since April 2013 Moleskine is listed at the Borsa Italiana, the Italian stock exchange. Moleskine is a creative company enjoying continuing growth. It has about 200 employees and a vast network of partners and consultants. Its home office is in Milan, Italy. Moleskine Group includes Moleskine America, Inc. (established in 2008), Moleskine Asia Ltd (2011), which is entirely controlling Moleskine Shanghai and Moleskine Singapore, Moleskine France (2013) and Moleskine Germany (2013). All subsidiaries are wholly-owned.
