Shifu Hanten

$3,200.00

Extremely rare shifu (paper cloth) hanten (short jacket). This material is a combination of cotton, for the warp, and washi (paper), for weft. This material was produced in the Edo Period and was highly valued, as it is cool in summer and warm in winter. It has not been produced since the early 20th Century.
