Caring For Your Planner Cover
・To prevent wrinkles or stains, avoid rubbing or wetting your cover.
・Leather covers are vegetable tanned to preserve genuine textures
and are expected to contain the original characteristics of the leather
such as wrinkles, scars, stains, or vein marks.
・We ask for your understanding in regards to unavoidable dents
around cover edges from the sewing machine.
・Bookmarks may tear off if pulled too strongly.
Please handle your bookmark strings with care.
・Avoid storing your cover in hot, humid areas or using volatile cleaners
as this may affect the quality of the product.
・Snap buttons may break if forced shut around an overstuffed cover.
・In order to allow customers the enjoyment of naturally-maturing leather,
covers do not contain oil coatings or special treatment.
These covers are very delicate, so we recommend
gently wiping them with a dry microfiber or silicon cloth.
Hobonichi has also partnered with R&D Co., Ltd. to provide customers with
critically-acclaimed leather care products to lengthen the life of leather covers.
