How to care hanten (padded clothes)
Hanten has cotton filling like futons, it get fluffy by sun and doesn't like humidity.
About once every two to three weeks, turn it inside out and dry it in the sun for about one to two hours.
This will make it fluffy again. This will also prevent the cotton fibers from breaking.
What should I do if the fiber of the cotton filling comes out?
Use scissors to cut the fibers that appear on the surface, and pull only the outer fabric by hand to separate it from the cotton inside. Since we use high quality long-fiber cotton, there are rare cases where the cotton may come to the surface due to rubbing when worn.
Wash it once in every season. First, check the quality label and washing instructions on the product.
Fold it softly and wash it by hand (push-wash).
If you want to spin dry in the washing machine, fold it neatly and put it in a laundry net, the shorter spinning time is preferred.
Stretch out the wrinkles and hang them out to dry, avoiding direct sunlight.
Since its establishment in 1961, Mitsunobu Orimono (textiles) has produced a variety of products using yarn-dyed fabrics while passing down the techniques of Kurume-ori, a typical textile of the Chikugo region.
The most distinctive feature of Mitsunobu Orimono is its integrated production from yarn to finished product. Because there are many processes involved in weaving, in most cases some of the processes are outsourced, but Mitsunobu Orimono uses its own facilities and craftsmen for most of the processes. Our priority has always been to produce high quality products as fabrics rather than speed and quantity.
One of Mitsunobu Orimono's main products is hanten. Also known as a "wearable futon," hanten is made by taking advantage of Kurume textile's unique characteristics of "good air permeability" and "heat insulation effect.
There are many attractive features of a hanten, but the most important is that it is lightweight and easy to move around in. Since you only need to tie a string around the body, it is easy to put on and take off.
Even if you fall asleep on the sofa, wearing a hanten is the same as wearing a futon, so it will keep you warm. There are many kinds of clothing to keep you warm, but a henten is by far the warmest.
In Japan, there is a growing generation of people who do not know what a hanten is. Fast-fashion down vests would be cheap and easy to buy for everyone. Still, the hanten is a special, magical thing that warms even the heart.
