The fabric of your Hakama should delight you and connect you more deeply to the movement of your practice.
Hemp fabrics are weighty, yet soft and flowing, quiet. Cotton is a bit stiffer, has more snap-pop at the end of your rolls. Cotton poly blends are lighter, easy to move in, thin and smooth. Fabric availability may vary. Swatches are always available if you would like to check the hand and color before deciding.
We will email you back with an estimated wait time, which can be anywhere from 1 to 4 weeks, depending on backlog. We will notify you again when your gi ships.
