Bring on good fortune in the New Year with the Limited Edition Year of the Rat Knots notebook from Moleskine. The first sign of the Zodiac, the Rat is associated with wealth and surplus in Chinese culture, and people born under this sign are believed to be optimistic and energetic. Bound in blue, which is considered a lucky colour in the Year of the Rat, this notebook is a beautiful way to mark the arrival of spring, and the possibilities of the New Year.
The Chinese Fú character (福) for good fortune is front and center, surrounded by traditional interwoven decorative knots. Knot tying is a time-honored Chinese custom, with decorative knots traditionally woven from a single length of cord. The notebook also includes two lucky red envelopes, which are traditionally used to give money to young friends and family members as part of the Lunar New Year celebrations.
Inside, you’ll find 240 pages of Moleskine’s classic ivory-colored 70 gsm acid-free paper, ruled and ready for you to plan your Lunar New Year festivities, or whatever else you might choose to write in it. With a write-anywhere hard cover, you can even take down your observations in the middle of the festival.
Moleskine was created in 1997, bringing back to life the legendary notebook used by artists and thinkers over the past two centuries, such as Vincent van Gogh, Pablo Picasso and Ernest Hemingway. Based in Milan, Moleskine brings the timeless quality of classic notebook design to a vast family of paper objects, bags, books, travel and writing tools.
