[TSLxBK] All Leather Notebook Cover is Baum-kuchen original artifact made in collaboration with The Superior Labor.

This artifact was inspired by our desire to use our notebooks in everyday life as well as our appreciation for The Superior Labor's incredible craftsmanship. The cover can accommodate the regular A5 size notebooks such as Hobonichi Cousin, Hobonichi Avec as well as MD Notebooks in A5 size.

The left panel features a vertical leather pocket to keep loose items that come in and out of our every day. The right panel has a vertical leather pocket with a credit card size slit. The front cover features the embossed Baum-kuchen logo with our mantra "On the quest for life well lived and loved." On the inside right panel, The Superior Labor logo is embossed.

The leather will mold to the way you use the cover and will get softer. You will see the most dramatic change on the nude leather cover as it gets darker and caramelized over time. I hope you enjoy witnessing the cover grow with you.

TSL artifacts are handmade with love and care by The Superior Labor in Okayama, Japan. The TSL team works diligently to honor leather as organic material, making sure to minimize production waste. As a result, some of the TSL artifacts feature natural markings such as scars, blemishes, wrinkles. The vegetable-tanned leather is sourced from a Japanese tannery in Tochigi prefecture. The leather used for the All Leather Notebook Cover is finished without additional oil nor wax. You will see the leather age and patina beautifully over time. We hope you enjoy all of the characters for many years ahead.
