Rhodiarama Rhodia

Karen

A couple of people have written to us asking when Rhodiarama Rhodia will be available in the US.

Rhodiarama Rhodia is a new product for 2012 – it basically 15 colored versions of a pocket Webbie.  Colors include:  black, chocolate, taupe, beige, anise, turquoise, sapphire, iris, purple, lilac, raspberry, poppy, tangerine, orange and yellow.  The paper is 90g, and the size is 3 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ or A6.

You can see them on the French Rhodia website here.

Here’s the biggest reason we are not carrying them now:  they aren’t made yet.  What you see on the French site is a prototype.

We expect the manufacturing to be done this spring, and hope to have some samples on hand at the National Stationery Show (May) and for Book Expo (June).

If there is sufficient interest by our retailers we may bring in some? all? of the colors to have on sale by June or July.

They are expensive—and will retail somewhere between $18.50-$20 each.  Are you willing to pay that amount for a pocket journal?

If so, what colors do you like?

Thank you!  Your votes make a difference!

  1. I LOVE all of the colors. Very fun. And the zebra print? Drool-worthy.

    However, $20 is a lot for a pocket notebook. I pay $10-12 for a pocket Moleskine and thought that was “bougie” and on the higher end of notebooks.

    $20 for a pleather notebook, whether Rhodia or Moleskine or similar, is too much for me. I’ve paid $30+ for a real leather notebook before, but rarely — and that’s for leather.

    Granted, I’ve never tried Rhodia products. I’ve never seen them in stores. So, maybe if I had tried them I would be willing to pay such a premium ($20 for a pocket notebook… yikes!).

    If they were Moleskine priced (<$12 each), I would buy all 15 Rhodia colors!
