Know your precious books are safe and protected wherever you go with a BookBud padded book sleeve. It's the book accessory no bibliophile should be without. My hand-sewn, padded book bags mean you can throw your latest read in your handbag, backpack or suitcase and not have to worry about creased covers or ratty corners. 

Mary-Jane BookBud book sleeve




    GENEROUS SIZING - All BookBuds measure 27cm tall x 21.5cm wide (10.5in x 8.5in) and fit 6x9 books up to 600 pages. Many of my customers carry two books in the one Bud!

    PROFESSIONAL CONSTRUCTION - I use industrial machines to sew all BookBuds with quality thread and all inner seams are chain stitched and overlocked to prevent fraying over time. You can expect a high quality, professionally sewn product with perfect finishes. A double layer of plush fleece + heavy duty fabric stabilizer + fabric outer provides more than enough cushioning to protect your books.

    UNBEATABLE PRICING - Get more for less. There are many book sleeves on the market that are either much smaller and charge the same price or are the same size and charge MUCH more. For example, one of the biggest book sleeve shops charges $28USD ($37 Australian) for a sleeve that is the same size as mine. My most expensive sleeve is $22USD ($29 Australian). WASHABLE - Unlike foam-lined book sleeves, BookBuds were designed with laundering in mind. You can easily toss your BookBud into the washing machine and not be worried about foam lining breaking down or falling apart. If your sleeve gets dirty, just wash it ona gentle machine wash, do not tumble dry as your BookBud will shrink, warm iron (taking care to avoid the label).   

    EXCLUSIVE DESIGNS - The Designer range of BookBuds feature my own graphic designs. I wanted to bring you all of your fandom favs and some pretty prints especially for my fellow book nerds.

Keep up with all the tea
