SHORT ABOUT DESKSTORE'S RANGE HISTORY
Deskstore - The Shop has been online since 1999 and the store has gone through many changes during these years.
Both our product range and website design are under constant development. By looking back in time we can see that come and go, but at the same time there are some classics that has been with us from the start and are still part of our range today.
It began with a range that consisted of binders and notebooks with linen covers in different colours, designed by ourselves - but the assortment grew fast.
Among the suppliers that was with us from the start were El Casco, J Herbin, Tombow, Midori, Moleskine, Folle, Rexite, Cleverline, Rotring, Agrippa, Rolodex, Gmund, Opto, Rapid, Diplomat, Emform and Wörther.
Deskstore's own designed books, paper and binders.
Moleskine notebooks was Deskstore's first success. Then Modo e Modo has just started their production of their new Moleskine version, and there were not many models to choose from, pretty much only Classic A5/A6.
Deskstore was one of the first who sold the brand, and had Moleskine customers all over the world.

Cable Management - Cable Turtles
The Dutch product Cable Turtle has been on the list of favourites from the start. Today we have a larger selection of cable management products and the need seems to keep growing.
Red Cable Turtle Classic and black Cable Turtle Giant.
In the beginning we sold many products related to CD storage, since people had starting burning their own CD's and the CD was also replacing the floppy disk as "backup".
There were many looking for stylish and practical products. One of the bestsellers were CD-Bago from Finnish Golla. It came in many colours and was perfect for sending a CD in. Nowaday Golla is mostly a producer of cellphone/smartphone accessories.
A real classic was our own CD binder in aluminium. It was part of our range from start and stayed long afterwards too.
