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. We recommend dry cleaning.
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.
We always recommend to dry clean the vintage kimonos as the fabrics are sensitive and the colors can bleed.
