THE LATEST NEWS FROM ROTERFADEN

March 29th, 2017 An incredibly soft vegetable-tanned leather exterior, with vegetable-tanned suede on the inside. Lots of pockets and a zipper compartment. The new TASCHENBEGLEITER ST_17 in the A5+ format is now available in our Webshop. Your local ROTERFADEN retailer can also order one for you. Available from April 19th.

February 24th, 2017 Our large A4 TASCHENBEGLEITER are very popular with sales reps and other people working from a “mobile office”. Our customers at WELEDA were also very happy with the format and the adjustable clip height (which works with A5 documents). The A4 Taschenbegleiter and the optional engraving are available in the Configurator. If you would like adjustable clips, please give us a call or send an email. We’re also happy to inform our corporate clients of special discounts.

January 30th, 2017 Estragon Film is filming a »MADE IN SAARLAND« series for the regional SR TV station, and the team dropped in on ROTERFADEN recently. The report can be seen on Thursday, February 2 on the SR channel. You can always watch it later to see behind the scenes at ROTERFADEN: go to the Mediathek or visit www.roterfaden.de

November 29th, 2016 The smoky mint-colored printing blanket (without printing ink residues) is not only a lovely color, but also has a very pleasant velvety feel to it.
And we were lucky enough to get some more! This printing blanket is now available, while stocks last, in the A5 format with a turmeric interior as article TASCHENBEGLEITER DT_17 in the webshop.

October 1st, 2016 We’ve often been asked whether the large iPad Pro fits in the A4 TASCHENBEGLEITER? The answer is: no, not in the inside pocket – it’s just a tad too big. But it fits perfectly under the four elastic bands at the corners. All other pads and similar devices will also fit in the inside pockets or under the elastics. Please give us a call – we always find a good solution, possibly tailor-made! Go to the Configurator to design your A4 TASCHENBEGLEITER.

October 31st, 2016 Many devices, such as the iPad 9.7" or the iPad Mini, in combination with their protective covers (or the smart cover), are too big for the large inside pocket in the A5 TASCHENBEGLEITER.
If you would prefer to keep to the A5 format rather than going up a size to the A4 TASCHENBEGLEITER, then the new 20 × 25 TASCHENBEGLEITER is probably your best option.
It comes in various materials and colors, with three different versions of the interior pockets. One of these versions has the popular elastics on the inside right for holding an iPad 9.7" or an iPad Air.

August 31st, 2016 The first ROTERFADEN MIDWIFE CALENDAR 2017 has been produced in cooperation with WELEDA and is already available in A5 format in our webshop. The additional pages for planning courses and patient appointments and the space for recording house call journeys are tailored to the job of midwife.
The calendar also includes many events and dates that are relevant for midwifery.

July 21st, 2016 No words. The remit: a short animation, as simple as the clip mechanism, without words. Our neighbor, the illustrator Joni Majer, knew what and how to do it. You can see the delightful result here:

July 4th, 2016 After seven years, we have changed the elastic for the closure and the penholder. You’re welcome! It’s so pleasing to see how the leather ages and how good the quality still is. Please let us know if your closure or penholder elastic needs replacing.

June 3rd, 2016 We were very pleased to be visited by Russell Hemsworth. He runs the wonderful stationery store NOTA BENE in Montreal, which ROTERFADEN articles will soon be calling home. By the way, dear inhabitants of Saarbrücken, he made the journey from Saarbrücken main station to the Rosenstrasse by velotaxi (highly recommendable!).
You can find a current list of our retailers here.

May 6th, 2016 The desk mats are currently backed with light grey 100% wool felt. This makes the pad lie flatter, particularly at the corners. You can also turn the pad over, felt-side up, so if you’d like a different colour, feel free to choose something fresh from the samples in the webshop.

April 7th, 2016 The new teacher’s calendars have arrived! You can find detailed description and photos of the new teachers’ calendar in our webshop. The calendar is available in A5 and A4 format. Here is a list of our retailers, so you can buy your calendar locally and save on postage.

March 10th, 2016 Many of our clients have requested our leather tablet sleeve for their MacBook Pros. We have now included the plain leather sleeve for the 13" format in our webshop. You can, of course, add an engraving to the case, which might be useful should you misplace it.

January 9th, 2016 So many wonderful things have happened to us since ROTERFADEN was born in 2006 as part of a design degree. We would like to thank all our customers for their loyalty and for continuing to recommend us. Whether stainless steel clips, leather, embroidery, engraving or printing, it’s 100% “handcrafted in Germany”.

30. Dezember 30th, 2015 HAPPY NEW 2016! On saturday 2th january, 2016 our local store in Saarbrücken will be closed.

December 11th, 2015 Safely hidden. As an alternative to the business card holder, use one of these adhesive pouches to store cards, vouchers, photos and more. You can stick them into any Roterfaden notebook. Order one the next time you’re in a shopping mood.

November 11th, 2015 We have added the new interior colors to the Taschenbegleiter Configurator. 100% wool felt: in turmeric / magnolia / blue / light? oder lime? green / rust / light gray / dark gray

These colors—and our new live preview graphics—are online in the CONFIGURATOR as of today!

October 13th, 2015 All sewn items—not just TASCHENBEGLEITER from the CONFIGURATOR—can now be “engraved”. Laser engraving works well on all materials—not just leather! First examples of this personalization can be seen in our gallery.

11. September 2015 The CONFIGURATOR has learned to do something new! In addition to embroidery on the inside, you can now personalize the outside of your TASCHENBEGLEITER. You can have an image or text engraved by laser on all our outer materials. Ask us if you are unsure.
And to all our corporate customers: we are happy to prepare a special offer for your larger orders.

2nd FEBRUARY 2012 How quickly time flies! It's been a year since we moved into our salesroom at the Rosenstraße in Saarbrücken. A lot of the daily business at Roferfaden happens here: Taschenbegleiter and calendars are stocked, work stations are here and we provide advice for our customers.

31st JANUARY 2012 Another option to have your KINDLE 4 or GALAXY TAB with you in your Taschenbegleiter, is a model fitting the size of the tablet. The tablet is held on the back side by four elastics in the corners. The three pairs of clips are slightly moved towards the inside. For the iPad we offer this format by default and to tailor it for any other tablet is not a problem, of course.


24th JANUARY 2012 Thanks for the positive feedback concerning our TASCHENBEGLEITER for the ipad. Did you know: A lot of our customers use there GALAXY TAB or KINDLE 4 inside the TASCHENBEGLEITER A5.
