New store – 1984 in Seoul

Since last week, Calepino is sold at the brand new store “1984” located in Seoul, South Korea. An opening party was organized on the 20th of September. Here are some pictures.



Bonjour Singapore

Even if it was not a priority at the origin,
it is clear that Calepino was well received internationally.
In less than a year, our small notebooks made in France
have been sold in more than fifty countries.
Last in list, in Montreal – Canada at the nice shop Rooney.
In Seoul as well, South Korea (pictures hopefully soon).
And more recently in Singapore.

There are two shops carrying international designer brands,
such as Engineered Garment, Makr, Il Brusseto, Moscot et Gitman Vintage,
and now Calepino.
Both located in the capital, the shops KNOW NOTHING IT
and the very recent (open only a few days ago) PACT also develop
their own creations branded SIFR.

Calepino in The Netherlands

Two new shops have now Calepino in stock in The Netherlands.

The first one is Red Wing Shoes, the famous shoes brand, that proposes the notebooks and wooden pencils in their beautiful shop in Amsterdam. You’ll find it at the 15th Reestraat, 1016 DM Amsterdam. Do not hesitate to visit this really nice place when you’ll be there.


The second shop is By Mölle in Hoonhorst at 5th Kerkstraat. Hoonhorst is a small village located in the city of Dalfsen, eastern part of The Netherlands. In this city, Marianne Maat and Ken Hughes decided to open their shop in an old windmill from 1862, and provide functional products made of natural materials, crafted in Europe with respect for our environment. A peaceful place where you can now find Calepino…

Calepino in New-York

Since Calepino was launched, the pocketbooks won a considerable success outside of France. The international orders must be at least 20/30%, and the notebooks had been sent in more than thirty countries now.

But in recent weeks, more and more stores outside the country have also shown interest in the distribution. So, after Belgium, the UK, it is the turn of the United States to host Calepino. And it happens to start in New York in the beautiful Bookstore-Cafe McNally Jackson, located in Manhattan at 52 Prince Street between Lafayette and Mulberry. Beautiful independent bookstore… here are some pictures.

And in a few days, more stores which start distributing Calepino in the US will be announced, in Washington DC and Dallas. But also one in Ireland and in Japan (Tokyo)…stay tuned.


Calepino and the Ville Rose

For the people living in the city of Toulouse (also called “Ville Rose” – “Pink City”), you may now be able to purchase your Calepino notebooks as well as the pens and wooden pencils in the beautiful shop “PAPIER ETC” located at the 25th rue Boulbonne in Toulouse. Christophe, the boss, has even redecorated the store window with the pocketbooks as you can see on the following pictures. Feel free to come and see.

And speaking of shops offering Calepino, in a short time you will get a glimpse of those of New York and Brussels… so proud …:)
Feel free to suggest other places of nice shops in your city. Thank you in advance.


Calepino @ FrenchTrotters + La Belle Echoppe

As you may have seen on the page “Points de vente“, you may now find Calepino in two new shops in Paris.

These are the two concept-stores FRENCHTROTTERS created by Carole and Clarent, two fashion addits always looking for the last art and fashion trends :

  • Bastille area, 30 rue de Charonne, Paris 11th
  • Marais area, 116 rue Vieille du Temple, Paris 3rd

Apart from Calepino, at FrenchTrotters, you will find around 50 brands from the men’s fashion universe, accessories and publications. 


Since 2011, FrenchTrotters has partnered with the blog Redingote to create the eshop called La Belle Echoppe. A beautiful showcase for french made products. A web site that combines a “made in France” market selection to a quality editorial content that focuses on skills, and take the reader behind the scenes of french brands.

Calepino is showcased alongside Bleu de Chauffe bags, basques espadrilles Don Quichosse, Le Minor Breton shirts, L’atelier de la Licorne horn combs and shoehorns or Institut très Bien eaux de Cologne
