In 1858, Jean-Baptiste Bichelberger chose the small town of Etival-Clairefontaine to set up his paper mill. Taking advantage of the rags supplied by the local textile industry, Clairefontaine grew to become one of the most important factories in the industry.

Clairefontaine began to manufacture their famous stationery products in 1890. Clairefontaine is currently the only European manufacturer making its own paper for its own products. This guarantees not only consistent product quality, but also controls the environmental impact of the manufacturing process. Clairefontaine is now managed by sixth generation family members.

    This is simply wonderful paper to practice your handwriting upon. Sooth but dries relatively fast.

    I bought these notebooks to practice my handwriting.
    Seyes paper or French ruled is used in France to teach handwriting.
    If you understand the use of all the lines, you can practice and improve your writing. the lines help you to make your writing more consistent and uniform. The paper is very fountain pen friendly and smooth. You can use both sides of the page. You need to fold it a little to lay flat. If that concerns you, you may try the wirebound version. I probably will do to next time.
