INFORMATION

ARTS&SCIENCE Original Planner Cover

We have also prepared matching A&S original planner covers this year as well. They will be available in three colors at A&S stores. They are made of Italian calf leather, which is known for its transparency and deep hue.
Thanks to the unique characteristics of the sophisticated calf leather, you will be able to enjoy its profound taste made possible by the passing of time. Note that the design is brand new: the back cover has a handle attached to it, allowing you to slip your hand through when you are writing. Inside has two card slots and a pen holder. The flap part comes with poppers.

〈Personalization Service〉is available to all customers who purchased the planner cover at ARTS&SCIENCE stores. The service allows you to have your initial (or any other letters) stamped or embossed in gold.

INFORMATION

Hobonichi Store Limited Planner Cover

Planner covers which are exclusive to Hobonichi stores are also available. For the first time, we created them in a combination of leather and fabric. It is an ideal balance of A&S original linen fabric and calf leather which becomes softer and shinier upon use. Because planner covers are meant to be used every day, we pursued a good balance of these two materials to create an exquisite look.
