Fantastic, collectible indigo piece.

It's a shop worker's hanten jacket with the logo and design of a company that sold traditional kawara roofing tiles, which are depicted from several angles on the front and back of the hanten and under the penguin in the logo medallion.

The back says "Penguin Torikawara" in the large crest and on the front it says "Penguin tori jirushi bunka kawara sei saku jo", which refers to a celebration for the company.

A deep, dark indigo blue that is the result of many dippings, no doubt. See more about indigo dyeing in Japan in the video below. White and red lettering on the lapel and brown trim at the sleeve edges that can be turned up for a color accent.

It's in excellent condition but we suspect it's quite an old piece.
