Unfortunately, since both are manufactured in Japan, they’re quite expensive to import. According to our product manager, Cecilia, a realistic retail price for the cotton covers is an eye-popping $32-50 US dollars, and $52-55 for the linen — without the planners, even! The yen is strong, and textile covers are subject to heavy taxes. On top of that, we’d have to pay an additional 5% to cover the Japanese taxes.
As always, though, if there’s enough interest, we could certainly try it. So here’s what I can tell you… the cotton covers are made of oil cloth and have a special interior pocket for business cards. They come in five colors: rose, sky, stone, chocolate, and lemon. The linen covers are hand-embroidered and also have a business card pocket. They come in red, blue, and gray. Both covers are refillable, and while I’m not sure which of our formats they fit, I can certainly try to find out if it makes a difference.
What do you think? Are they worth it?
