About Gi


Features of GI
Our Dogi is made of 100% cotton. There are 2 types:

・Unbleached (Natural beige color)
Please wash before first use. No detergent necessary. Dogi will shrink to chart size.

・Bleached (Pure white color)
Due to the bleaching process, minimal shrinkage occurs after washing. Dogi is same as chart size.

・Caution
We recommend hang drying our Dogi.
If a dryer is used, shrinkage will occur in BOTH bleached and unbleached products.
Additionally, any excessive drying can damage the cotton thereby reducing the lifespan of the Dogi.

・The Seam
In some products, we make a seam in the back.
By making the seam in the back, the Dogi will be stronger.
And by using more cloth with a seam, it may also solve the problem of the Dogi opening too much in the front.




・Size
The smallest size is 00. For sizes larger than size 2, we have "L" and "B" options.
・Size L (ex. In the case of 2L)
(Jacket) The shoulder to hem length and the width are same as size 2,
but the sleeve length will be closer to the size 3.
(Pants) The width is same as the size 2, but the waist to hem will be longer, closer to size 3.
Size B (ex. In the case of 2B)
(Jacket) The overall width will be closer to size 3 but the sleeve length and shoulder to hem length are size 2.
(Pants) The length is the same as size 2, but the width will be wider, closer to size 3.
Please Note: 2L and 2B will be the same price as the size 3.

◆Laundry and Care

***Do not use bleach***
Cotton is damaged by bleach. Please avoid using it.

Caution:
Please do not put any detergent directly on to the Dogi when washing as it will change the color. Use washing machine inlets or make sure that detergent is totally dissolved.

Please rinse well. Any residual detergent will damage the cloth and reduce the durability of the Dogi.

We recommend hang drying the Dogi. If a dryer is used shrinkage will occur in BOTH bleached and unbleached products. Additionally, any excessive drying can damage the cotton thereby reducing the lifespan of the Dogi.
