Collaboration of Japanese winter wear "Hanten" and "denim
Using the light, soft, and beautifully lustrous Pima cotton denim fabric from Kaihara Corporation, a denim fabric manufacturer with the top market share in Japan, we have created a casual and comfortable cotton-filled lintel.
The small amount of padding makes it easy to move around in and can be quickly put on, yet it is still warm and goes well with general clothing as well as samue (Japanese work clothes). The Hanten has a casual yet luxurious appearance and can be used by people of all ages, making it an ideal gift item.

What Are Hanten?
There are two main types of Hanten; Shirushibanten and Wataireitenten.
Shirushibanten have a store name or crest on the back of the collar and were worn by craftsmen as formal wear or work clothes.
Wataire Hanten were born as winter wear for ordinary people. They feature padding between the outer and inner lining for warmth during Japan's cold winters.
Today, our hanten are worn by a wide variety of people as a kind of stylish jacket both indoors or for going out.
Our padded hanten are designed to be durable, comfortable, and allow freedom of movement. The thin and lightweight padding between the outer and inner lining helps retain warmth in winter without adding bulk or restricting movement.
Our approach preserves traditional craftsmanship while incorporating modern techniques. We are particular about sewing in various places to be light, easy to wear and last a long time.
As a result, our padded hanten are popular in Japan during the colder months. People from all walks of life find them so comfortable that they wear them daily.
