We are MISOGI DOGI
MISOGI DOGI is the project of a team of passionate martial art practitioners from Switzerland. Aikido practitioner and sustainability expert Lucile Barras started an ongoing journey to discover ways to create an aikido-gi fully in line with the budo spirit of purity and respect. Her adventure has led her to making plenty of exciting discoveries on a wide range of topics such as O-Sensei’s spiritual teachings and the world of textiles. She has explored a new creative design, visited cotton mills and manufacturers, listened to the experience and ideas of many fellow aikidoka and teachers… there is still a lot to discover.
Together with European karate champion Marko Marffy, we have also developed karate uniforms in line with our philosophy. And thanks to our aikido fellow and creative director David Oreiro, you can enjoy beautiful graphics, pictures and films on this website and our further communication material. Jascha Barras joined the team as invaluable support of daily business.
MISOGI DOGI has delivered an initial batch of 200 uniforms by summer 2018 after a successful preorder campaign in winter 2016/17. However setting up a new business is an adventure full of surprises. Our plans have often been delayed and are getting delayed again. We accept this as another form of misogi. – Thank you for your patience.
