Courage, Benevolence, Justice, Courtesy, Honesty, Loyalty, Dignity - these are the virtues of the warrior, each represented by the pleats of the Hakama.
GAIA uses our new pleat-lock stitching - meaning that each important pleat is fixed in place by two rows of stitching. One row is applied to the inside of the pleat, keeping it in place, whilst the second to the outer crease, ensuring its shape is kept clean, and crisp.
Further, the Featherweight Polyester fabric is not only light and comfortable, but it has been especially developed to be wrinkle repellant - delivering a smooth, clean appearance.
Thanks to the synthetic construction, GAIA can be worn all year round, and washed easily. The colour will not fade or run, like a traditional Hakama, and it can be washed with detergent without a problem. Finally, its lightning-fast drying time means you can be back in the Dojo with it right away!
Perfect for all levels of Kendoka!
IMPORTANT - The GAIA Hakama runs slightly longer than our other Hakama models - IN GENERAL IT IS BEST TO CHOOSE 1 SIZE LOWER THAN YOUR USUAL SIZE - for example, if you usually wear asize 26, you should choose asize 25. Please consult the chart below, which measures from the bottom of the Koshi-ita, to the bottom hem. If you are unsure about the correct size, please contact us.
