Nakata has been hand-carving hangers in Japan since 1946. Using a traditional Japanese tool called a nankin-kanna, a skilled craftsman shaves material off wood to achieve an ergonomic shape. In fact, they say that “the longer the wood shaving, the more skilled the craftsman.”

Arterton has been supplying Nakata hangers over half of the Savile Row houses. Clients also include couture brands, royalty, various VIPs, and luxury hotels. Win a set of 3 Nakata AUT-05 luxury suit hangers from Arterton to be engraved with your name of choice.

The Nakata AUT-05 is Arterton’s most popular model. The hanger features wood that has been hand-stained. In contrast to other methods, applying a mixed stain by hand preserves the natural wood grain. Features also include a fully rotatable hanger hook and a luxury felted trouser bar, which ensures that trousers do not slip off. The diameter of the bar is world-leading at 1.5cm, as to evade any possibility of centre creases forming.

The shape of suit hanger is paramount. A thin hanger will damage your garments by stretch out the cloth along certain lines. Moreover, your jackets and coats in various sizes. Similarly, your hangers ought to be adequately sized. Too short, and the shoulders are left unprotected. Too long, and the hanger bulges against the seams. Fortunately, the Nakata hangers come in three different widths, Nakata trouser hangers, valet stands, and shirt hangers are also available from Arterton.
