Roterfaden / WK-12 leather cover


Roterfaden (it means "red thread" in German") is a smart, utilitarian and very tactile leather notebook cover 100% made in Germany!

Roterfaden WK-12 is one of their slimmest system. By eliminating the elastic gum which are used for other Roterfaden and creating a cover with a single leather piece, Roterfaden WK-12 is much thinner and less bulkier than the regular Roterfaden thickness. (please see pictures for comparison between WK-12 and Light Brown Roterfaden Leather Cover

It's smart because Roterfaden is equipped with 2 sets of hinged clips that can hold anything and everything that might come towards your way (think... notebooks, to-do list, catalogue, books in A5 sizes, a loose printed paper, a map, a phone number on a piece of paper). The clip can also work as a book mark to quickly mark the page you need! You can watch the clip mechanism on Roterfaden's short video. You can mix and match notebooks in A5 sizes from various brands as well as fit a book like Mjölk book if you would like to keep an inspiring reading materials with you! 

Roterfaden is utilitarian because it comes with functional inner pockets that help you organize your life and essentials like business cards, credit cards, receipt, cash, a checkbook... (you name it!). Front inner panel comes with one business card size pocket as well as one medium size vertical pocket that could fit slightly large items like receipt The vertical back pocket can accommodate additional notebook and other loose items that are up to A5 size. 

Its tactility comes from carefully selected Roterfaden materials. Outside cover is a vegetable tanned leather from Germany that is durable as well as beautiful and inside pockets are made out of dark grey suede leather. The leather cover comes with 2 pen holder loops (one attached to the front panel and other attached to the back panel. By threading one pen through these 2 loops, you can create a locking mechanism to keep the notebook closed when not used.

We love the flexibility and versatility of the Roterfaden with a twist of German Bauhaus approach. If you love the way Traveler's Notebook functions... yet need something slightly larger to write/draw/capture/organize, it will be a great fit for your analogue system!
