The handkerchief importer and manufacturer Blooming Nakanishi has been around for 140 years. For this techo cover we chose a charming image from their World Nations collection, which contains over 3,000 designs. Its abundant detail means you’ll be able to gaze at it every day as you reach for your techo without getting tired of it.
This pattern comes from a hand-drawn souvenir handkerchief featuring the state of Alaska. The outer areas are filled in with cute blue flowers — perhaps the state flower, forget-me-nots — and surrounded by a scalloped border.
The cover design is paired with another vintage handkerchief pattern on the pen holders, creating a striking, yellow and gray accent.
The cover is made from a fine-grain polyester that feels pleasant to the touch and is reminiscent of a cotton handkerchief.
Carrying this cover, you’re sure to feel like you’ve got your favorite fresh, iron-pressed handkerchief tucked neatly into your bag.

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 material is first printed or dyed and then later sewn onto the cover. While colors are designed to be consistent, there may be uneven coloring or slight shade variances between covers. This may also happen across a single cover, such as a pocket compared to the rest of the cover. In addition, on rare occasions, there may be small black or white dots visible on the print. This is an unavoidable aspect of the manufacturing process.
When this cover is open flat, exterior stitching areas may appear puckered and lining material may be loose.
Due to the characteristics of the print and product material, the sewing process may expose the white of the original material around the stitches.
The pen holders are rigid at first, making it difficult to insert pens. You can speed up the breaking-in process by rolling the pen holders in your hand.
The pen holder is designed to perfectly fit the 12.2 mm (0.48”) diameter Jetstream pen offered as a free bonus gift with select Japanese-version Hobonichi Web Shop products. Pens with certain shapes and materials may be difficult to pull through the holder. The holder can fit pens up to 13.5 mm (0.53”) in diameter.
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.
