The “Tairyō_Bata” bomber blouson is the latest upcycling project (2021) by BÂTAR D'ESTE.
"Tairyō_Bata" are original signal flags of seafarers imported from Japan. The flags are designed, printed and sewn by hand in Japan by specialized artisans.
Each flag is unique and therefore each of our bomber blousons is uniquely designed based on the pattern of the flags.
Our bomber blousons are absolutely rare handcrafted one-offs "Made in Japan" & "Upcycled in Berlin"
Our "Tairyō_Bata" collection is limited due to the nature of the material - each jacket is individual.
We upcycle vintage Japanese textiles that would otherwise go to waste.
Therefore, damage to the material, stains, color differences or other superficial bumps are completely normal and at the same time underline the authenticity.
With this project, we are continuing to pursue the sustainability claim anchored in our manifesto.
The model is cut and made in our Berlin studio.
