|Article number:||Leather: Taut Bordeaux A6 [COVER ONLY]|
This leather design is specially designed to fit snugly around your Hobonichi Techo book while keeping it slim and comfortably portable. It does not contain butterfly stopper pen holders, and pockets are kept to a bare minimum.
The 2024 edition of Taut is made of leather named “Stone,” tanned by “Nuova Albora,” a tannery in Pisa, Italy. It is a high-quality cover with a deep color resembling an aromatic Bordeaux wine.
“Stone” is made from fine raw hides from France and Germany and tanned with 100% vegetable tannin, resulting in a hard finish. The leather is colored in two stages; a light Bordeaux color is evenly applied to the leather with a metal roller machine, and after fixing the color, black paint is sprayed over the top and further polished. The polishing removes a portion of the last layer of black paint and adds an antique atmosphere of shading, unevenness, and brilliance to the surface. The longer it is used, the more the color will blend with the base Bordeaux color with depth and beauty.
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.
Each cover has its own unique take on the texture and character.
