BUILD-YOUR-OWN - cover for Hobonichi Weeks or Weeks "Mega" edition


Hobonichi Weeks planner cover custom made in your choice of colors. For the Japanese "Hobonichi" journal / calendar / diary.

--> DESIGNATE YOUR COLOR CHOICES in the "Add an optional note to seller" field during checkout--PLEASE READ BELOW.


The very popular Japanese Hobonichi Weeks 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 Weeks. I do not guarantee the fit with any other notebook.

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

Did you ever open a package and find something you know is just right for you? Something that you will have a long time? That is how I feel about my new notebook cover from One Star. It is beautifully made and feels good in my hands. It is both utilitarian and lovely to look at! Treat yourself to something really nice!

Five stars for one star. This is my third notebook cover from you. Love it....great leather which wears well.I love picking the color of the thread. Fits the notebook well.

Love it! Took a long time to get it, but it is built to last. My dog's even tried to get it from me (she destroyed my last cover from a different shop) and it isn't worse for wear. The ONLY thing that kind of bothers me is it is a little too loose, and the pen holder is really big. I wish there was maybe two buttons so that I could pull it closed tighter, but it could be loosened for people that pack in more things to their hobonichis... I just write in mine, I don't see it getting fat enough to "fill" the strap....

It shipped early and the quality surpassed my expectations.
