Rhodia is known for high quality, exacting standards and timeless design. It is closely associated with creativity and innovation coupled with tradition.
The company originated as part of a family business known as Verilhac Brothers, Paper-Maker. Clairefontaine (also a multi-generational family business) acquired Rhodia in 1997 & production transferred to Mulhouse, France. After the acquisition, some Rhodia family members stayed on with the brand.
The Rhodia Notebook, originally a sideline for Rhodia, was to become its most famous product.
