Colorful flowers are the key to this bold Antique Handkerchief design. The black background helps the design come together as it accents the flowers’ vibrant colors.
The handkerchief importer and manufacturer Blooming Nakanishi has been around for 140 years. For this techo cover we chose a charming image from their World Nations collection, which contains over 3,000 designs. Its abundant detail means you’ll be able to gaze at it every day without growing tired of it as you reach for your techo.
The intricately printed handkerchief was originally made in Switzerland. The array of colors don’t detract from the delicate touch of the artwork, giving it a mature feel.
The red border pulls from the handkerchief’s original design, and another vintage handkerchief pattern appears on the pen holders.
The cover is made from a fine-grain polyester that feels pleasant to the touch and is reminiscent of a cotton handkerchief.
You’ll feel at ease when you carry around this cover, adorned with plants that show their leaves and flowers stretching out with freedom.A6 Planner Book in English

Select shop and brand Arts&Science owner Sonya Park directed the creation of this English-language Hobonichi Techo book, which has been refined and simplified to make it easy to use in all countries and languages. It still contains all the beloved features of the Original Japanese edition, such as the compact A6 size, one page devoted to each day, daily quotes, lay-flat binding, and more.
The graph paper in the English version is slightly enlarged to 4 mm to allow users to write comfortably in any language. Timelines are simplified to a single 12 to denote noon so users can completely customize it to their own schedule (or ignore it completely), and each day is also labeled with the number of the consecutive week that year, from 1 to 52.
The back of the book includes informational and useful pages such as My 100, Japanese Festivals, and Japanese Bentos.
The book has a chic, black textured cover subtly engraved with the Japanese characters for “techo” alongside the Arts&Science logo.
