This zippers cover evokes the casual look of a backpack.

The material is the same durable, high-strength nylon, called Cordura, that’s used in outdoor goods and outerwear.

The cover comes in a calming shade of red.

The spine and zipper handle are made with the same suede material often used in backpacks.

A large pocket in front can fit bulkier items like washi tape rolls.

The inner pocket includes a tag certifying the cover’s use of Cordura.

Alongside the pocket is a hook that can hold a keychain or carabiner to customize your cover however you like.

This cover can act like a real backpack for your Hobonichi Techo, hanging loop and all, as you travel out and about.

All covers are hand-made and may contain slight variances

Each and every cover is individually sewn by a factory worker hand-operating a sewing machine. Best efforts are made to ensure consistent sizes and specifications, but there may be slight differences.

Note: The Hobonichi Techo's Tomoe River paper is designed to prevent bleed-through, but some fountain pens and water-based ink pens are not compatible with this paper. When switching to a new pen, we recommend testing the pen somewhere in the book, such as the back memo pages, to see if the ink bleeds through or takes an especially long time to dry.
