Description
 
"Chidori" Child's Hanten

Very vintage, small sized child's indigo cotton hanten - sometimes called a happi coat. No telling how old it is.

The back features a large sakura (cherry blossom) shape filled the character matsuri (festival). A fairly rare motif of chidori (plovers) and waves is featured on the front.

The vertical text on the front lapels translate to "Big Group".

Small size. Wearable but great for display. Very collectible.

Indigo was often used to dye these festive jackets. See video below on indigo dyeing in Japan.
