Why We Love It
The Kurume hanten is the highest quality traditional kimono-style padded jacket for contemporary living.
Kurume City in Kyushu specializes in Kurume Kasuri – cotton-weaving textiles originating in the 18th century. It is renowned for its intricate technique and premium quality of raw cotton.
This hanten padded jacket is carefully handmade stitch by stitch and filled with Kurume cotton padding, which will not slip. This thick natural padding not only retains heat well, but will also puff back up to its original volume with a little warmth from the sun. The lining is also cotton to ensure you will be both warm and comfortable.
The elegant patterns woven into the 100% cotton fabric highlight Kurume’s textile heritage, but the design is tailored to modern life. It is longer and more spacious than a traditional hanten jacket, and comes with two large pockets. Try a fashionable look with a turtle neck sweater and knee-high boots!

It is wonderful, I gave to my wife for Christmas and she loves it. Thank you for helping me find this so beautiful item! Prof. Dr. Anders Ljungar-Chapelon, Sweden and France
I recently ordered this hanten, as I had been looking for something to wear in our room that's always WAY colder than the rest of our apartment, and this more than lived up to my expectations. It's extremely comfortable and retains heat really well. If you're looking for something cozy to lounge in I can't recommend these hanten enough. It's also a great way to appreciate Japanese clothing and textiles while supporting the people making them. I love it!
I'm really happy with this purchase! The hanten is very pretty and of high quality. It is also super comfortable to wear, it's like a wearable blanket. I would definitely recommend this hanten, especially if you're looking for something comfy to wear inside when it's cold.

During a recent trip to Japan, I learned about jackets like this. I wear it in my chilly house and feel cozy and warm.
