TS stands for the initials of the Hobonichi Techo book’s designer, Taku Satoh, who helped us produce this standard black leather cover that has been a staple in our lineup for over ten years.
The fine texture of the matte cow leather is soft from the first time you use it and fits comfortably in your hands. The subdued design gives your techo a sophisticated and chic look.
The charm to this cover comes from the way it exudes style and quality for users of all types. The leather also transforms over time, and it’s fascinating to watch it become a one-of-a-kind cover you won’t find anywhere else. The combination of good quality and good design to this cover makes it ideal for a first-time leather cover, whether it be for personal use or work.
