Brief History of Rhodia
The stationery firm “Papeteries Vérilhac Frères” was founded in Lyon, France, in 1932 by the brothers, Henri and Robert Vérilhac, they sold stationery across France and North Africa. Two years later the brothers dream of manufacturing their own stationery was realised, and in 1934, the now famous orange Rhodia pad was born.
The Rhodia Name
Rhodia reflects the brand’s origins by the Rhône River in France, where the people from this region are known as ‘Rhodaniens’, and which led the brothers to create the name – Rhodia. The two-joined fir trees symbolize the company’s founding brothers, Henri and Robert Vérilhac. Family legend has it the logo was drawn spontaneously in a single stroke by Antonia, Henri Vérilhac’s wife, and the hand drawn, sans serif letters reflect Rhodia’s modernist roots to this day.
