Legendary Moleskine notebooks now available in Sri Lanka
Moleskine, the legendary notebook made famous by some of the world's most creative people, has arrived in Sri Lanka through The Full-stop, the country's only internationally-styled branded stationer.

Widely considered the best notebook on the planet and certainly the most famous, Moleskine notebooks are made of acid-free paper and are available in two sizes and several formats specially designed for a variety of uses, its importer said in a press release.

Possibly the most celebrated stationery item ever known, the Moleskine notebooks owe their fame and image to their iconic users, from Ernest Hemingway to Vincent Van Gogh, Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, Louis Ferdinand Celine and Bruce Chatwin.

"These notebooks are for the true connoisseur of avant-garde stationery,"
The Full-stop Managing Director Lai Ming Ukwatte said, "Using one makes adefining statement that the user is most discerning and quality conscious."
She said a new-generation of writers and artists have now embraced these little black books to record priceless ideas and thoughts, ideas which will stand the test of time thanks to their quality paper and binding.

"Paper is a proven archival material, more resilient than CD's or hard drives. This is why Moleskine notebooks are now being embraced by new-media artists, song writers, graphic designers and web designers for passwords, code, addresses, sketches and even as diaries," Ms. Ukwatte added.
A simple black covered rectangle with the covers held closed by an elastic band, an inside pocket for loose sheets, a binding in 'moleskine' which gives it its name, these trusty, pocket-size traveling companions once guarded notes, stories, thoughts and impressions before they turned into the pages of beloved books.

Originally produced by small French bookbinders who supplied the Parisian stationery shops, the Moleskine notebooks went out of production by the end of the 20th century. In 1986, the last manufacturer of Moleskine shut down. Twelve years later, a small Milanese publisher brought Moleskine notebooks back into production and the legendary little black books have begun travelling the globe once again.

The Full-stop (written Thef:;llstop), chain comprises three outlets, at Crescat Boulevard, Premier Pacific Pinnacle and Odel in Colombo. The company is the sole distributor in Sri Lanka for the Japanese stationery giant Maruman Corporation and for several other reputed international stationery brands including Esselte of Sweden, Maped and Lefranc & Bourgeois of France.
