  • Is there any difference between the TRAVELER’S notebook of TRAVELER’S COMPANY brand, and the TRAVELER’S notebook of MIDORI brand?

    We launched the TRAVELER’S notebook in 2006 as one of the series of the MIDORI brand. All the products in the TRAVELER’S COMPANY brand share the theme of traveling that takes place in one’s daily life. In order to pursue and enrich this theme, we changed the brand name from “MIDORI” to “TRAVELER’S COMPANY” in 2015. Since becoming an independent brand, TRAVELER’S COMPANY has continued to propose a journey into a new world where one can express themselves freely through its notebooks and other stationery items.


  • The leather cover of the TRAVELER’S notebook has some small but visible scuffs and marks on it; is this normal?

    TRAVELER’S notebook consists of a cut cow leather tanned using vegetable tannin and a tin-made part attached on a rubber band. It is hard to process a leather tanned by vegetable tannin for it shows the wrinkles and scratch marks easily. However, it is environment friendly, and has an authentic attractiveness where it beautifully changes over time. The leather used for the TRAVELER’S notebook has oil seeped inside, and by doing so, it makes the finish soft. We wanted to make full use of the natural feeling, so we did not process it excessively. So please be noted that there might be some small scratches and wrinkles on the cover. The longer you use it, the more the color deepens. And by this deepening, the scratches would be hard to spot.


  • Can you tell me how to use the connecting rubber band for setting refills to the TRAVELER’S notebook?

    Please refer to the detailed instructions listed on our official website.
