2043 Enshu-ori Sleeveless Cotton-inserted Hanten
Just by wearing it, you can change your warmth and appearance. A convenient winter haori.
This sleeveless cotton-filled haori is made of plain Enshu woven fabric.
It can be worn over any samue, making it an easy-to-use item for the cold autumn and winter months.
The lining is made of cotton broadcloth with padding and tailored into a sleeveless poncho (Jinbaori), so it can be worn over a variety of clothing. The advantage of this item is that there are no sleeves, so there is no need to worry about stains on the sleeves, and it is easy to work in. If you wear it over a samue, you will look warm and dignified, without sacrificing its formal look. This is the best choice for energy-saving wear and “warm biz” style clothing.
Enshu is the current name for the western region of Shizuoka Prefecture. Enshu is a comprehensive textile production area centering on cotton fabrics, with a very long history dating back to the mid-Edo period, and its unique fabrics, such as those which are highly textured and made on shuttle looms, are highly regarded worldwide.

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.
