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 sophisticated patterns woven into the 100% cotton fabric highlight Kurume’s textile heritage, while the design is tailored to modern life. It is longer and more spacious than a traditional hanten jacket, and comes with two large pockets.

Actually we bought 2 Hanten jackets – one earlier in 2022 and one in late 2022. They keep us warm and cosy – it is a bit like wearing a duvet. It would be nice our Hantens came with some form of obi or inter tie to overlap although I am aware that Hantens have none.
Love the jacket, love the service!
I received Sashiko Hanten Jacket just before Christmas. Jacket is so soft, warm, lightweight and when I put it on I feel like a big warm friend is hugging me. I like the high quality natural fabric. The combination of dark navy and white colors, minimalist and delicate fabric pattern and details - everything together is impressive. I wear this jacket while reading a book or sitting at the computer because my home is cool in winter. As the jacket is quite open at the front, I haven't yet gone out with it because the winter weather in our country is cold and windy (from 0°C to -20°C). But I shall wear it on chilly spring evenings when I go out for a walk.
I'm very satisfied with this hanten jacket. It's light-weight but nice and warm. The fabric is beautiful and high quality. I look forward to wearing it when our weather cools down. I'm making a hanten jacket at the moment but it won't be as nice as this one. Shipping from Japan to Hawaii was very quick. Mahalo!
I spent 3 years in Japan and loved hanten there but I never ended up finding one that I liked enough to buy. I generally use a bathrobe around the house when it gets colder and I was in need of a new one when I stumbled across Japan Objects. I loved the simple design of this hanten and that is was a little bit longer so I decided to buy it as a replacement for a winter bathrobe. The shipping was incredibly fast and the hanten is amazingly high quality. The embroidery is lovely and the padding is nice and thick. I only wish I could have chosen a different size as the M/L is huge. But, since I am not trying to make any fashion statements, I don't mind so much. Really excellent experience buying from this site, I will be back for more!
