A cute polar bear drawn by illustrator Izumi Shiokawa is the star of this techo cover.
The illustration was first featured in a polar bear exhibit hosted in 2021 at Hobo Nichoyobi, Hobonichi’s event space.
Shiokawa's soft lines shows a polar bear in profile as it stands, and another bear as it rests while staring off into the distance. It’s a heartwarming design that will leave you a little more relaxed whenever you see it.
The cotton-based fabric of the cover was chosen for its resemblance to the coloring of polar bears. Silkscreen printing was used to transfer the artwork in a blue-tinted dark gray ink, creating a print that feels glossy and textured.
The back of the cover shows a polar bear lying down and relaxing.
The interior pocket shows an innocent polar bear cub sprawled out to make you smile every time you open your techo.
The bookmarks are shiny, thin satin ribbons with diagonally cut tips and a bright red that really pops against the cotton.
The design is simple but so adorable thanks to the charm of Shiokawa’s illustration that it will capture your heart.
