LeatherTaut (Beige & Navy)A6 Size (fits Planner and Original)

This leather design is specially designed to fit snugly around your Hobonichi Techo book while keeping it slim and comfortably portable. The 2022 edition is made with reversible leather that has a beige with a tint of gray on the exterior, and navy on the interior.



The leather used for this cover is named “Trello Double” and is tanned by Italian brand Poletto. Using a special processing technique, this leather allows you to enjoy two colors with a single piece. It uses Brazilian bullhide leather that is finely textured both on the front and back for a luxurious feel. 



Two slim cuts into the leather interior allow it to hold cards the size of a credit card or business card.







The pen hook on the right side is designed to hold a pen by its clip.







The cover contains a small, simply designed bookmark made of the same leather as the cover. The bookmark is debossed with the Hobonichi logo.







You will be able to enjoy the charms of the cover, from the simple form that snugly fits the techo, the kind and mature color scheme, and the special and luxurious feel the leather in itself holds.

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.

Leather may contain preexisting wrinkles and marks

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.

Leather coloring stains

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.

Immediately dry if it gets wet

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.

The cover does not shut tightly

The cover does not shut tightly while it is new, but it will wear in over time.

Not for use with Cover on Cover

The PVC plastic of the Cover on Cover contains plasticizer additives which may cause a reaction in the leather dye and affect the color and quality of the leather cover. Please refrain from using the Cover on Cover with this product.

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.
