Clairefontaine Logo

Clairefontaine is the notebook, handicraft and fine art brand for office, school and home.

The company is best known for making the first school notebooks in France. The Clairefontaine mill has been making paper since 1858 and stationery products since 1890. In 1950, Clairefontaine began to offer high-quality notebooks for schoolchildren and the rest, as they say, is history.

Now famous for its premium notebooks, Clairefontaine inspire quality through its products including staple bound and wirebound notebooks, diaries, address books, office accessories, boxes, paper bags and wrapping paper. The Clairefontaine name is a symbol of quality around the world. Our notebooks and paper products are designed to fulfil their functions and have become the must-have in stationery.
