Hobonichi has teamed up with Steiff, the oldest plush toy maker in the world, to bring you this trifold Weeks cover that can also serve as a wallet. Sold separately is a Teddy Bear Keychain specially made in a matching color so you can attach the keychain to your cover for an exclusive matching set.
Steiff teddy bears use high-quality yarn called mohair, made from the hair of the Angora goat. The exterior and pen holders are made with this mohair to give the cover the characteristic beautiful sheen and luxurious softness that you’ll want to cuddle. 2019 marks the second year in a row with a Steiff collaboration, and this year we’ve chosen for the cover a beige shade in Steiff’s lineup called Café au Lait for a classic teddy bear color.
This techo cover keeps the trademark button and yellow tag featured in the left ears of Steiff plush toys. The tag designates that the product has passed the maker’s strict quality standards before being imported into Japan from Germany. This product is extremely rare in bearing the trademark, as Steiff has historically reserved the distinct honor for its plush toys. As we did last year, we’ll be sending the finished products to the Steiff headquarters in Germany to have the buttons and tags attached.
The cover contains two snap buttons to securely fasten the cover shut. The dual buttons can accommodate the thickness of your Weeks book as you use the book and fill your cover over time.
Unfastening the button and opening the cover reveal a luxurious, high-quality brown leather in the interior. The cover contains a space to insert your Weeks book cover and pockets in a variety of sizes. The pen hook inside the cover can hold a pen by the clip.
Just as its name suggests, Wallet Teddy is designed to serve as a wallet in addition to a techo cover. It has a zip-up pocket where you can store coins, and there are plenty of pockets for storing cards.
The cover has a gold-colored metal ring at the top that allows you to attach a Teddy Bear Keychain to your cover. (*Keychain sold separately.)
The Steiff cover is delivered in a specially crafted black case. The silver-leaf engraving on the cover reads in German, “GEMEINSCHAFTSPRODUKTION VON STEIFF UND HOBONICHI,” meaning “Collaborative product of Steiff and Hobonichi.”

In order to provide you with the most satisfaction for your product, we've compiled a list of warnings, potential issues, and tips to keep in mind for this particular product. Please be sure to read this information carefully before placing your order.
The fur around the outside of the exterior is shorter, so areas folded over the edge may reveal the base cloth.
In order to allow customers the enjoyment of all-natural leather, the leather is processed in a way that retains its original feel. This may leave imperfections visible on the surface of the cover,
such as wrinkles, scratches, stains, or vein marks.
Depending on the conditions in which the cover is used, natural oils of the leather may emerge and appear as stains. We ask for your understanding for these naturally-occurring characteristics of genuine leather.
Dyed leather products tend to leave stains. Please be careful not to allow the leather to adhere or rub against other objects such as clothing or other belongings, especially if the bag is wet from water or sweat from your hands.
The interior leather of the cover may not be perfectly taut due to limitations during the manufacturing process.
The "button in ear" atop the cover is attached by hand in Germany. The position and direction of the tag, and the direction of its button, vary.
Immediately dab your product with a dry cloth if it gets wet. Avoid drying it with high temperatures, and place it in a well-ventilated place in the shade.
Please avoid storing your product in hot, humid places or placing it atop other objects for long periods of time as this may result in lower quality and color stains.
The natural material contains variances in color and coat between each product.
Each item is individually assembled and sewn by hand by a factory worker. Best efforts are made to ensure consistent sizes and specifications, but there may be slight differences.
This cover is designed to hold only one side of the planner book cover. Forcing both sides of the book into the cover will place stress on the book spine and may cause ripping or hinder the zipper.
This item can also be used with the Weeks Mega.
