We called this japanese vintage Hanten Little Yama because the store owner's name contains the kanji « 小 » which means « little » or « small » and has a mountain sign in the back.
Yama in japanese means mountain. That is why we called this hanten Little Yama. This Hanten is thin, comparable to the thickness of a karate-gi. The color is a deep Japanese indigo. We recommend dry cleaning this unique japanese vintage piece in order to preserve its form.
A Hanten is a short winter coat, an item of traditional Japanese clothing. The coat started to be worn, especially by the common people, in the 18th century during the Edo period. We have a broad collection of Japanese vintage hanten and kimonos, check out our full collection of japanese vintage.
