A5 Diary Cover, 2020 Diary, Cross-Hatch Design, Japanese Indigo-Dyed Cotton
Love this


This smart A5 diary or planner cover is from my popular 'Indigo' range. It can be purchased either with a 2020 page-a-day diary or as a cover-only to fit the Hobonichi Cousin A5 planner or any other book/planner the same size. (Please check the dimensions given below - not all A5 books are the same size.)

The cover is made from high quality, indigo-dyed Japanese cotton, a reproduction of old Japanese cloth, slightly heavier than usual with a soft linen feel to it. The design is a traditional cross-hatch or hash sign print, one of several designs available. The front cover is half plain, with rows of simple quilting, and the back has the pattern all over. The cover is lightly padded and interfaced, and lined with a matching plain indigo fabric. Two lengths of narrow satin ribbon form attached bookmarks.

Pattern placement may vary from the cover shown.

External measurements of the cover are:
- with book closed: approx. 22.5 cm x 16 cm (8.75 x 6.5 inches)
- opened flat: approx. 22.5 cm x 33.5 cm (8.75 x 13.25 inches)

It will fit a book, diary or planner measuring up to 21 cm x 14.8 cm x 1.7 cm (8.25 x 5.75 x 0.7 inches). The diary shown is 21 cm long, 14.8 cm wide, and 1.7 cm deep.

Shipping by Royal Mail 1st Class Signed For (UK) or International Tracked.


I found this gorgeous fabric at a trade show and instantly fell in love with it. I purchased a small quantity and made a few covers - they sold out quickly. Fortunately, I was able to source more of the fabric, and my new 'Indigo' collection began.

There are several other fabric designs in the 'Indigo' range - please check my shop for current availability in both A6 and A5 sizes, or contact me to discuss custom orders.
