We just got back and here we are answering our customers having trouble

our products. The notebooks details and characteristics require a lot

Online feedback form
We are putting in place a feedback form for you to specify precisely
problems with paper, binding, print etc. This form will be very
important for sustaining our efforts in keeping and increasing the
quality of our products.
Thanks for your comments!
It's you, the moleskiners' community, which is the real strength of
our brand and the warranty of quality of our notebooks. You help us
identify problems and address them. It is also you who bring ideas and
help us discover new ways of using Moleskine.
In the next few days we will be in touch and talk about:
1 - production in China
2 - company plans with the new owner Société Générale Capital
3 - prices
We would like to keep the dialog going - we always welcome your
suggestions and comments.
