This is a fantastic vintage indigo cotton fireman's hanten jacket.
Fireman's jackets are usually made of very tough cotton for their work but this is a quite light weight hanten jacket.
Kanji lettering on lapel says ‘Iwaoka shobodan ( Himeji fire team ) 岩岡消防団’ and the jacket also has wonderful graphic character of the fire team logo and pattern.
It would be stunning to use as an unique jacket and also great display as a decorative piece for a room.
It has certain wear and flaws including marks, but as a whole it is in a very good condition for the age. Enjoy real vintage folk textile taste of Japan! Please check the detail photos and the 'Extra Images'.
