I have been a long time user of Moleskine notebooks and thought, "These are the pinnacle". No more. The quality of the Rhodia paper, especially using a fountain pen, makes that used by Moleskine seem like something from a cheap high school spiral notebook. It is, I believe, a paper vellum (or vellum paper, I've heard the subject and modifiers used interchangeably). A superior product. The notebook itself is just stapled paper with a heavy cover, perhaps made of vinyl, but is still very durable.
I think I love Rhodia more than is reasonable for paper products.
I was lead to the Rhodia camp, away from my previously intractable allegiance to the very popular Moleskine (which has its advantages, for sure--more on that later) by my old-fashioned friends who prefer fountain pens to regular pens. The paper Rhodia makes, particular in these notebooks, is exceptionally well-suited to "grip" and really broadcast the subtlety in fountain pen inks. I have tried most Lamy inks in these notebooks, including blues, blacks, and purples, and they have great shading and consistent shine in the Rhodia, without seeping through. I think Moleskine was intended for graphite, or regular pens, despite their being the self-declared successor to those notebooks used by legendary artists. Fountain pens and Rhodia belong together.
BUT WAIT. THERE's MORE.
I really like that these notebooks have sturdy, but flexible spines, so that you can bend them backwards and...
Perfect size for me since I like having slot of space so I can fill it with notes etc. Doesn't feel as expensive as the hardcover ones but it's a different notebook. So far the most comfortable to write in considering I like space. Wish it had more pages
