Traditionally, happi coats were short robes that displayed the family crest and were worn for festivals and special events. Our Mon Haori Jacket features the hawk crest which is a symbol of the samurai and was used to designate samurai and their families during special events. You can use it as a everyday stylish outfit, but you can also wear it in your own homes or when close to home. The addition of linen in this linen and cotton blend makes this fabric much more breathable than straight cotton. Enjoy the invigorating, fresh spring weather and show off your style.
