They originated as a keepsake for American soldiers leaving Japan after WW2 which accounts for the name.
The Flat Head takes the Souvenir jacket to a whole new level. The jacket is 100% rayon. Even the embroidery is 100% rayon rather than polyester which maintains the silk-like quality over the whole jacket. The pattern is woven finely and close together avoiding any hollow spaces between the threads. Usually if you use too much thread for the embroidery it will become stiff but thanks to The Flat Head craftsmen and women and the complex techniques and machinery they use, they succeed in creating a dense embroidery that is soft rather than stiff.
