HERZ of Japan Leather Cover B6 Slim


Herz of Japan, a Tokyo-based manufacturer with an astounding variety of leather goods produced by in-house artisans, custom fit these leather covers for our Cafe Note B6 Slim notebooks, just like they did for our Seven Seas A5 series.

Herz is known for their high qualilty hides, complex designs (e.g. briefcases, wallets, randoseru, etc.) detailed craftsmanship and signature wide stitching. These covers, although simple, are equal in execution to the Gfeller covers that we also offer. The difference is that Gfeller utilizes only natural, undyed vegetable-tanned products, while Herz uses vegetable-tanned, aniline-dyed Italian skins. The texture ranges from "wrinkled" to smooth, with many variations in-between and even on the same cover.

Please note that these do not have the extra-long inner flap utilized in the Gfeller covers, but the minimal "Writer's Bump", if it is an issue, can be eliminated with a writing mat if necessary. The leather "weight" is comparable to that used in the Gfeller covers (about 2 oz leather).

  1. Beautiful -- I have both Gfeller and HERZ -- both great covers 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Jan 2019

    I've got both the Gfeller and HERZ B6 covers and I have to say I'm not sure which one I like better. The dark brown HERZ just arrived so it might be newness bias. I'm glad there are two basic options (and three color options for HERZ). I love the way the flap works on the Gfeller though -- it's very cleverly designed to reduce the writer's bump, so I have to hand it to the Gfeller for design overall.

    However, I really love the feel and color of the HERZ leather -- it just feels slightly more luxurious to me... or at least the dark brown does, I can't speak for the other two color options. Don't get me wrong, the Gfeller is perfectly great, but the dark brown HERZ just feels a bit more elegant to me. Both are great -- both 5 stars. Glad I bought both.

    Now if Dave will only release a full-page grid V2 version of the Cafe B6 slim like the new Cafe A6 and Studio A5 versions! :-) That would make the whole B6 slim ecosystem perfect.

    Well done once again, Dave. Please keep up the great work! There is a reason why people have come to really love Nanami.

  3. Great cover! 5 Star Review

    This is a great cover that is highly portable and will protect well against the trials of travel. I assume most who buy a B6 size will be using it because it’s highly portable. At least that’s why I did. This cover will stand up to lots of use and abuse if that so happens. I love it!
