We recently got this email on our Rhodia website: “am mad (love) about your paper quality; brought an armful of pads today and would love to know where to purchase buttery-soft leather pad holders, preferably with zipper close for the different size pads.”
Exaclair has gotten this request enough at this point to prompt me to start looking for a possible supplier – either at the upcoming National Stationery Show in New York or through our customer recommendations. I do know of two artisanal places: one in Montana and a second in Washington State - one-person shops that make leather covers to order and completely by hand. Stephanie has suggested Colonel Littleton in Colorado. I know Tom Bihn makes wonderful bags where you can tuck in your Rhodia pad, but not leather zippered ones that I can see.
Friends, please help me with your advice: would you be interested in a leather zippered cover for your Rhodia pad? Can you suggest any suppliers? Would there be any other feature in this product that would be important to you; i.e., pen holder, place for business cards, etc.? All comments and suggestions are welcome. Thank you very much.
