An vintage man's cotton muslinjubanwith a bold printed repeat design featuring a swooping hawk and wild tsunami waves.
The boldness, keen eyesight and predatory nature made taka or hawks appropriate symbols for the Japanese warrior class & subsequently adopted as traditional male motifs. Thejuban is in very good condition with a few starch marks and very faint blemishes on the lining & silk collar.
In contrast to women's kimono, men's kimonos are typically in subdued, darker colours with subtle patterns and textures, however thejuban, worn as a secondary layer under the kimono is often richly patterned or may have a hand-painted design.
