TS stands for the initials of the Hobonichi Techo book’s designer, Taku Satoh, who produced this standard black leather cover. In addition to designing the techo book, Satoh has worked with Hobonichi for many years on a variety of products.
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.
This soft leather cover has been a favorite in the Hobonichi Techo cover lineup for over ten years. It’s a great choice for users who’d like to try using a leather cover for the first time.
The TS Basic - Black cover design has a timeless quality and an aesthetic unswayed by trends. Whether at work or at home, this cover matches any user and any setting, giving you a nice touch of luxury anytime.
