Manto Cloak, is a type of battle surcoat, similar to Jinbaori 陣羽織. It was originally known as a Manjira from the Portuguese word “Mantelo.” After the French started trading with the Japanese (Post Bakumatsu era), it became known as “Manto” (From the French Manteau). More simply known as a “Samurai Cloak”. It became very fashionable for the Samurai to wear this type of cloak, even more so after Oda Nobunaga started wearing this type of surcoat during his days of hegemony.
Our Manto Cloaks are customizable, and look equally good worn over a suit of armour or by itself. These are crafted from a durable woolen fabric. Because of the thickness, we cannot embroider the fabric. Instead, to apply a mon to the cloak, we use heat transfer vinyl decals. Standard size fits a person of 5′ 8″ (177 cm) tall and will come down to just below the waist. You may select a shorter or taller height if you would like to change the overall length. Our Samurai Manto Cloak is from an original design.
- Options of different wool colors, materials, neck closures and trims are available
- A clan or your own custom mon can be added for a small fee
