The Aizome Gi
The Aizome Gi is inspired by the Japanese indigo dyeing process which uses the fermented leaves of the Polygonum Tinctorium plant to create a deep blue dye. Aizome dyed garments were used by the samurais for its antiseptic properties, helping healing wounds and repelling insects.
The Yuki Gi
Yūki means courage in Japanese. The Japanese saying "Koi No Taki-Nobori" ("Koi climbing the rapids") reflects the strong spirit of the Koi and is shown on embroideries and on the inside label. The gi features a Coolmax lining inside the jacked with a large group of colorful Koi. Coolmax is also used on the jacket skirt and on the gusset with a traditional Japanese geometrical pattern.
The Ama Gi
The Ama gi honors the brave women ("ama") who dive for pearls, abalone, lobster and other treasures of the sea. They can hold their breath underwater for several minutes and make more money than their husbands, being highly independent, respected and praised in their community.
