Product Information & Size Chart

#8000 Cotton Aikido Hakama - Heavy Weight

Made in Japan | Black or Navy

Material: 100% cotton (synthetic color, do not fade).

Shrinkage: ~1%  |  Weight (size 26): 1.2 kg

Shape: Traditional Aikido cut (flexible koshiita, 7 lines of stitches on straps)

This cotton Hakama is made from a fabric especially selected by Seido for its strength and slightly shiny appearance. This fabric is mainly used in the manufacture of clothing for the Japanese army, precisely due to its high strength. This Hakama is available in black or navy blue. Note that the navy blue is very dark, and therefore often mistaken for black by our clients.

#8000 corresponds to the yarn density, but a higher number does not signify an increase in quality. Indeed, a cotton #20000, for example, would be too rigid for the practice of martial arts. The #8000 is an intermediate model between #6000 and #10000. We did not opt for cotton #10000 for this particular hakama because synthetically-dyed fabric does not benefit from the softening effect of the indigo dye (used for the #10000) and therefore, a tighter weaving would have resulted in a hakama that would be far too steep. The choice of #8000 cotton for this model is the best trade-off between flexibility and strength. The particularly long roll of fabric that we use allows the cut to be made parallel to the lines of weaving and therefore, the Hakama falls perfectly in spite of the tendency that cotton has to crumple.

This model will be suitable for all practitioners seeking a heavy cotton Hakama, without the inherent maintenance difficulty of an indigo hakama. However, we discourage cotton Hakama models to first-time hakama users because they are quite heavy and require a period of adaptation.

For maximum comfort, the strap length is adjusted according to the size of the hakama.

As all our Hakama, this model is fully made in Japan (fabric, cut and stitching).

Option (made to order): sewing of the inside pleats (+ 3,000 JPY)

Cotton Hakama models are particularly difficult to maintain and fold, we therefore propose to sew the inner pleats. Although the "wrinkled" aspect of cotton Hakama is a desirable feature for most practitioners who usually choose this model, you might opt for the option of sewing the pleats in order to preserve and identify them more easily during folding after class or during washing. The pleats are sewn on the inside, which makes them completely invisible when worn. The result however is that the pleats are better kept, and the "puffed out" aspect the hakama will be reduced.
