DARK INDIGO ANTTO JACKET
Inspired by the yukata-shaped chef coat worn by our friend Chef Antto Melasniemi and the yukatas worn by Toshiro Mifune in his numerous roles as the samurai in Kurosawa’s films, the Antto Jacket is made with a lightweight twill hand-dyed in natural Sakon Nakhon Indigo by our Indigo Grandmas.
Antto Jacket has epaulettes on both shoulders, a little twist from the original shape. The underside is in the mud-dyed Dune color, and the stitched lapel with lines for more structure, also as a knot detail on the yukata.
Deep dive into the details; a magnetic snap button on the outside with an inner metal button and a flap to secure the pocket even more. Adjustable fabric ties that fall on the side can be styled in the front, at the back, or through the epaulette. Two slits on both sides of the jacket hem are also trimmed with piping in Dune color.
Sakon Nakhon indigo is naturally anti-bacterial, and anti-microbial, and provides a cooling effect through UV protection. It is a living and breathing dye. This jacket will become your love-worn favorite if you treat it well. As with anything living, it will fade with time, aging gracefully.
