A suit hanger with flared shoulders produced by the preeminent wooden hanger manufacturer chosen by high-end hotels, department stores and famous fashion brands.
Skilled craftspeople create a shoulder slope that follows the rounded lines of the human body, while retaining the smooth feel of natural wood. Hangers in an elegant and warm design that also deliver practical storage that offers longer protection for your most important clothing.
Expert’s comment: Based on 70 years of manufacturing and experience, this ultimate hanger has been crafted into an object that appears more like art than a practical tool. Surely jackets are delighted to be hung on such a beautiful hanger. The approach of examining every detail of the act of hanging up clothes is itself truly indicative of Japan.
