minä perhonen creates timeless, all-original garment textiles that are specially dyed, embroidered, and woven to recreate hand-drawn designs.

The wood bird textile depicts a neatly lined row of bird-shaped building blocks. The birds are outlined in five colors of embroidered thread that protrude from the material. 

The cover is made of 100% linen. The navy exterior is matched with a beige interior. The light yellow and green bookmarks make for an enjoyable contrast in the color scheme.

The zipper pull is made from natural leather and includes a butterfly charm.

Because of the way the cover material is cut, each one features an array of birds that’s different from the next. We hope you enjoy your one-of-a-kind cover.


About minä perhonen

minä perhonen is a fashion brand created by designer Akira Minagawa. 
First founded in 1995 under the name minä, and renamed "minä perhonen" in 2003. In Finnish, “minä” means “I,” and“perhonen” means “butterfly,” expressing Minagawa’s hopes to create designs as light-hearted and beautiful as a butterfly’s flapping wings.

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.
