Rhodia ePure notebook in Hong Kong

Avatar

Reader Yue Wang of Hong Kong emails a report about ePure notebooks:

The ePure feels ok. Just like other 100g or heavier paper, it is not so white and smooth but thicker than the 80g paper. If the 100g paper is as smooth as Rhodia 80g paper, I will be a ePure fan. And it would be more useful for me if ePure has A4 size version.

I also bought some Clairefontaine notebooks together with the ePure. Even though it is the first time that I bought Clairefontaine, I must admit I prefer Clairefontaine to ePure.The paper is white and smooth and also has light fragrance. The moment I saw them, I love them immediately. They are worth the time I spent on the way to the only Clairefontaine distributor in Hong Kong.

  1. wow..
    I don’t expect that there are comments and just saw them thanks to Norman’s reminder.

    Some more info. for you:
    1/. The ePure have two sizes, A5 and A6. Recently I found that their papers are different, although both are 100g. The A6 size paper is smoother and more like the 80g Rodia paper. The A5 size is a little bit coarser and more like the CIAK paper which I don’t know if you are familiar with. I am puzzled by the difference because they should have the same kind of paper.

    2/. The distributor in Hong Kong has a website http://www.workingunit.com/
    You can email the boss Arnault, a French guy, to ask if he can provide the online purchase service. His email is arnault@workingunit.com
    Good luck

  3. I don’t know for now, Maria. Like Grannykass and the others, I’m still waiting to get my hands on one. But I would imagine it’s the same Clairefontaine-made paper like the rest of the Rhodia line, only in the heavier 100g stock.
