This highly refined Gi is soft and supple yet strong and durable. Obtained by weaving a double layer of fabric, this results into having a Gi with a high capacity of absorbance and a unique way of protecting you from strokes.
The seams and the hems are protected by an extra bias tape, reducing the uncomfortable friction and ensuring their resistance.
The yarn itself has been dyed in natural indigo, which creates a visual uniformity, unlike standard Gis which are dyed after being sewn.
Moreover, unlike any conventional Gi, the # 12000 cotton gives a finer finite and denser fabric.

New clothes lose colour while washing and in the training. This is a sign of a high qualitied clothes. Our clothes in Deluxe Quality are dyed with natural inidigo dyes according to the traditional japanese style.
You can wash both Hakama and Gi by hand in water at a very low temperature.
Tip: In order to keep the folds of the Hakama after washing it, just follow this procedure.
Before washing, fold the Hakama (see how here). Put it in the tub and wash it by trampling on it like traditional winepresses do. Once it is done, carefully open the folds and hang it on a line to dry. Take it off before it is completely dry and fold it back, then press it with books and leave it to dry. It will then look like perfectly ironed!
