The design seen on the front of the Hoodie symbolises a moment in time in the 1800s when the Japanese government introduced a variety of social, political, and economic reforms to assimilate and disrupt the original Indigenous peoples of Japan, The Ainu. The Ainu inhabited Hokkaido, the second largest island in Japan that is found in the north. The Ainu language was banned being taught in schools, they were ordered to cease their religious practices, and Ainu children were given Japanese names and put into Japanese schools.
