Dogi & Hakama Sashiko Bag

Made in Japan

Material: 100% Unbleached Sashiko Cotton

Dimensions: 43 cm x 55 cm (rope length is about 195 cm in total).

Embroidery color: 18 colors to chose from (the same color applies for both the kanji main design and the name option).

Name option: Name embroidery at the bottom of the bag (see product pictures)

This cotton bag can fit a dogi, hakama, belt and towel. The ropes and port on the back are thick and comfortable. For optimal quality, Seido logo, Aikido calligraphy, "Ki" calligraphy and all other designs are not printed but embroidered. Made 100% from japanese made unbleached sashiko cotton, this product is eco friendly.

Here are all the designs we offer and their meaning: 

  • The Seido embroidery is based on the Seido label attached to all Seido equipments.
  • The Aikido embroidery is based on a calligraphy found in the main dojo of Aikikai Hombu Dojo. It was created by Morihei Ueshiba O-Sensei when he was 80 years old, a period in his life when his calligraphy reached its peak. Note that the depth and extension of ideograms are a sign of an open mind.
  • The "Ki' embroidery is based on the same calligraphy as the "Aikido embroidery" but only contains the second kanji "Ki".
  • Judo - Gyoshotai (cursive font)
  • Karatedo - Gyoshotai (cursive font)
  • Kendo - Gyoshotai (cursive font)
  • Iaido - Gyoshotai (cursive font)
  • Zanshin - Gyoshotai (cursive font) : Remaining mind, or lingering mind. 
  • Mushin - Gyoshotai (cursive font) : No mind (mental state), or mind without mind.
  • Heijoshin - Gyoshotai (cursive font) : Calm, imperturbable, relaxed heart/mind
  • Shingitai - Gyoshotai (cursive font) : The unification of mind, skills and body.
  • Takemusu Aiki - Gyoshotai (cursive font) : Aikido concept, the unity of martial techniques through the concept of Aiki.

Option "Name Embroidery":

Optionally, you can add your name as embroidery. It will be embroidered on the left of the bottom part (same high as the Seido label), with a font size of 2 cm by 2 cm.
Please note that due to our technical settings and to improve the overall balance, it is only possible to embroider either a first name, a last name or a word (1 word).

Product Information & Size Chart

  • Keiko White Tetron Iaido & Kendo Hakama

    Made in Japan | White

    Material: Tetron (65% polyester / 35% rayon)

    Shrinkage: 0% | Weight (size 26): 0.85 kg

    Shape: Classic Kendo/Iaido Cut

    As usual, this white Hakama is fully made in Japan (fabric, cut and stitching). Made of the same polyester/rayon composite fabric as our popular Aikido Hakama Training, it is durable, solid, and comfortable. The fabric is slightly thicker and stronger than the one used by other manufacturers for Kendo or Iaido Hakama, the Koshiita presents extra stitchings, and the lateral vents are reinforced with an added piece of fabric.

    Overall, it is very easy to maintain due to a special high pressure pressing treatment which durably fixes the pleats and keeps them perfectly in place, making it easier to hand-wash and dry on a hanger. The color may slightly fade after the first wash, but will hold much more than Aizome on cotton fabric. It is recommended mostly for daily training and intense practice.

    White outfit is traditional in Seitei-Iai and for some Koryu. It is usually considered a symbol of purity, and some say it is a reference to the white cloth the deceased are dressed in: it would be a reminder of how you are supposed to kill your ego through the practice of Iaido. In any case, it is very often required to match the color of the Hakama with the Jacket’s color.

    Although the traditional navy color is usually preferred among the male Kendo practitioners, women and children can be seen wearing white Hakama regularly. However, another really famous and exceptional use for a white outfit in Kendo is the Imperial Guard, supposedly as a symbol of purity due to their proximity to the Emperor.

    Option (made to order): sewing of the inside pleats

    Though synthetic Hakama are quite easy to maintain, we offer to sew the inner pleats to make the folding as easy as possible. The pleats are sewn on the inside and therefore the stitchings are completely invisible when worn. The result however is that the pleats are better kept, and the "puffed out" aspect of the Hakama will be reduced.
