minä perhonenjardin (Gray)A5 Size (fits Cousin)

minä perhonen creates timeless, all-original garment textiles that are specially dyed, embroidered, and woven to recreate hand-drawn designs.



“jardin,” meaning garden in French, is a beautiful, painting-like textile using deep colors. By carefully sectioning the color of the pile, the shadows on the flowers and leaves are expressed intricately. The large flowers blooming boldly are striking.







The Jacquard Velvet is specially made in the only factory in Japan that has the technique to make it possible. The strength and gorgeousness of the flowers and the beauty in the shadows formed by curves of the petals and leaves are expressed eloquently because of the efforts and studies of the craftsmen.



The “butterfly-stopper” pen holders and cover interior are a calming, smoky gray. Two dotted lace bookmarks are attached.







Each cover contains a unique arrangement of the pattern. We hope you enjoy your one-of-a-kind cover.

About minä perhonen

minä perhonen is a fashion brand created by designer Akira Minagawa.
First founded in 1995 under the name minä, and renamed “minä perhonen” in 2003. In Finnish, “minä” means “I,” and “perhonen” means “butterfly,” expressing Minagawa’s hopes to create designs as light-hearted and beautiful as a butterfly’s flapping wings.

Please Read Before You Buy

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.

Actual specifications may vary from listing

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.

Pattern alignment varies by product

The patterned fabric has not been aligned to a specific layout, so the placement of each design will vary by product. The product will not be an exact replica of the one in the product photographs.

Base fabric may be visible beneath the fluffy pile of this product

The base fabric may be visible beneath the fluffy pile of this product. And if some of the pattern overlaps a folded edge, this too may cause the base fabric to be visible.

Threads may protrude from embroidered area

Please note that embroidered areas may contain threads that protrude from the design.

Embroidered designs may be slightly distorted

Due to the varied thickness of the material, embroidered designs may appear slightly bent.

Coloring may stain other objects

The dye in the cover may stain other objects if it rubs against or sticks to them, especially if the cover is wet from water or sweat from your hands. Please store with care.

Cover may contain variations in stitching or loose lining

When this cover is open flat, exterior stitching areas may appear puckered and lining material may be loose.

Pen holders are rigid at first

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.

Pen holder fits pens up to 13.5 mm wide

The pen holder is designed to perfectly fit the 12.2 mm (0.48”) diameter Jetstream pen offered as a free Hobonichi Store Exclusive. 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.

Not for use with Cover on Cover

This cover uses thicker materials than usual, so it may not fit. Forcing it into a Cover on Cover may damage the products.

Avoid storing in hot and humid places

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.
