Rhodia Pad Review by Tejal


Tejal Kuray recently got to try Rhodia Blank Pads and posted her thoughts on the product.

She gave the pad good points on construction:

“This has got to be the best designed notepad, ever. First of all, it has a COVER (which is more than I can say for Staples sugarcane bagasse paper…honestly. Is a cover too much to ask?) to protect it from the academic elements of sweaty hands, dirt, ink, and being tossed in and out of a knapsack or bag. I also dig the understated simplicity of the cover: The black logo, against an orange backdrop. Period. Nothing more. It has a vintage feel to it, which I appreciate…”

On the paper…

“Though beautifully smooth, it has a little more tooth than its sister brand Clairfontaine. It’s barely noticeable — just enough to give you some control over your steering, so to speak (I personally prefer the glassy Clairefontaine, but that’s just me :) ) ..”

The verdict:

“This has been my first experience with a Rhodia pad, and despite the slightly frustrating aspect of not being able to really write on both sides of the sheet [while still being attached to the pad], it certainly won’t be my last. Suffice it to say, I certainly understand why Rhodia pads have such a huge following. Consider me a fan!”


Thanks Tejal (say it: TAY-jull)
