As well as masterful quality, Clairefontaine also has an impressive history and heritage. They have been making paper a long time and they have been doing it right. In 1858, they began to produce their high quality paper in the beautiful Etival-Clairefontaine region of France. Only a few years later, their factory was the backbone of the region because of the quality and importance of their notebooks, envelopes and paper. To this day, Clairefontaine still produces the finest paper in the same factory, carrying along their tradition of quality for us, who deserve only the best.
