We called this Japanese vintage Hanten Big Yama. The kanji 大 means “Big”. Simple but powerful word! It has a mountain sign in the back. Yama in japanese means mountain. That is why we called this hanten Big Yama. This Hanten is quite thick, comparable to the thickness of a karate-gi. The color is a deep Japanese indigo.
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 fullcollection.
