Customizable leather cover for A5 notebooks - Hobonichi, Rhodia, Leuchtturm1917, Nanami, Midori, Life, Apica - ink blue / textured tan

Sorry, this item has sold.

**Please read the full description below!**

This is a customizable listing--the colors of this cover are seen in the VIDEO, the photos are representative of what the final product will look like.

A5 notebook cover made for the Hobonichi Cousin, but also fits many other A5 sized notebooks (see list below).


The very popular Japanese Hobonichi planner makes a great daily journal, planner, calendar, scrapbook, sketchbook... and it needs a good cover. The exterior piece is thick and supple Horween leather, the inside is bridle leather from the Hermann Oak tannery. Both are superior quality leathers. Each cover is made to order--hand cut, assembled, stitched and finished with care, and it feels simply incredible in your hands. Buy it once and refill it with a new Hobonichi year after year.

This is a perfect and snug fit for the Hobonichi Cousin A5. More info about our Hobonichi covers is available here:

NOTE: Hobonichi Planner NOT included, this is just the cover for it.
