A5 Azuki // Notebook Cover
This artifact was inspired by 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 Avec as well as MD Notebooks in A5 size.
The left inner panel features two-tiered vertical pockets to keep loose items that come in and out of our everyday. The right inner panel has a vertical leather pocket with a credit card size slit. On the leather, you will see an embossed "The Superior Labor" logo.
Initially, the cover will fit the notebook like a new pair of jeans with a slight tension. Over time, the canvas will get softer and leather will darken as it wears in. I hope you enjoy witnessing the cover grow with you over time.
All materials are carefully sourced in Japan and they are made in The Superior Labor maker's studio in Okayama prefecture where they turned an old elementary school into a unique workshop space. You can check out more photos of how their Engineer Shoulder Bag looks over time on our blog post: [Metamorphosis] The Superior Labor Shoulder Bag / new vs. + 2yrs.
Our hope is whenever you open your notebook, it will be a reminder to keep living the life well lived and loved!
