Tuesday Talk Back: Covering Your Notebooks: Yes or No?


Gfeller Webbie

How important is it to you to cover your tablets and notebooks? While Rhodia offers several options of covers for the top staple bound pads, and Exacompta makes a clipboard folio for the Rhodia No. 18 pads called the Exaboard, we seem to mostly hear people talk about wanting covers made of leather.

If you’d like a leather cover for your favorite Rhodia products, check out these companies below. Don’t see what you’d like, or want something customized? Don’t be afraid to ask these folks to handcraft something just for you.

The Rhodia Webbie shown above, is adorned in a leather cover from Gfeller Casemakers – currently offering hand-made cases for 9 different Rhodia offerings.

Ateleia Craft & Design just recently completed a successful Kickstarter campaign to manufacture a sweet brass pen, and also the leather journal shown above.


If you are a fan of Circa Rhodia, Renaissance Arts makes several covers for the disc bound products from Levenger.

A personal favorite of mine, is this one of a kind leather case made by Michael Martinez,

  1. NOT the notepads and booklets. The outsides of those are like upholstery. Now, books are different story. Hate the ruin the hard-cover.

  2. For the Orange webbie, no cover.
    Black Webbies and Molie clones benefit from any cover, even gaffer tape.
