Both Classiky and Atelier Penelope are based in Kurashiki.
Classiky were originally looking for a bag design from Asuka Karasawa (Ateliers Penelope's head designer). Karasawa-san's designs are generally not multifunctional. He selects very specific and unusual colour references, removes any superfluous aspects from the design to make it look good under any circumstances.
Somehow, the bag project morphed into a book cover design. The cover is a softly washed book pouch and a paraffin-coated book cover that is crisp.
It's a simple design, but once you start using it, you will enjoy it more and more and admire the patina it will slowly acquire.
