Made with passion

The Misogi Dogi uniform has been carefully designed with a lot of love for details. We listened to the preferences of the aikido community. We explored the various aspects and functionalities. We tested a series of innovative options. And we are very proud of the result. Have a look:

Fabrics

The Fabric

Light-Medium Weight

Judogi Style

GOTS Certified

Organic Cotton

Soft White

According to our survey results and our observation on the tatami, most of us like to wear a single layer, light-medium weight judogi style uniform with a jacket made of rice grain (sashiko) and diamond (hishizashi) canvas. These fabrics are not yet available in organic cotton and will be weaved exclusively for Misogi Dogi. For the prototypes, we had to use a different type of fabric, but with the correct color:

Misogi Dogi uniforms will be made of partially bleached cotton to achieve a beautiful, soft white tone while maintaining a high fiber quality. Because whatever the method used, the more a fabric is bleached, the more the fiber quality diminishes.

Misogi Dogi uniforms will be made of GOTS certified organic cotton fabric. GOTS is the world wide leading certification for sustainable textiles: all along the supply chain, from the cotton seed to the finishing mill, only environmental friendly, natural methods are used to grow the cotton and produce the fabric, without genetically modified organisms and without harmful chemicals.

Sizes

The aikido community is very diverse: from the athletic young lad to the soft and round auntie, her super tall and slim sister, the stronger-than-ever uncle and the grandpa in his best shape. We developed a system of 10 sizes covering not only different body sizes, but also taking into account various body shapes: for each body size (160cm – 170cm – 180cm – 190cm), you can chose between slim, medium and large. (Size chart with measures is featured on our webshop). You can always select jacket and pants sizes separately.

We too hate to see our uniforms shrink in our washing machines. We requested the weaving mills to do their best to avoid any fabric shrinkage after delivery. We can guarantee it for the pants, but not yet for the jackets. Of course, we will test the fabric and adapt the cut accordingly to ensure the best fit.

A Misogi Dogi uniform can be washed at 60°C. We recommend not to do it too often to preserve the fabric and the environment. If your training was intense, the best is to wash your uniform immediately at a low temperature. But every now and then and particularly after a few days of seminar without washing opportunity, a laundry at 60°C may be necessary and shall be alright.

Price & Costs

We aim at a fair price. One way to express this is by setting a single price independently of the size you chose: size ‘190cm large’ costs the same as a ‘160cm slim’. Because, should someone pay more because she or he happened to grow bigger? No. We love you just the way you are.

We also aim at cost transparency. Below, you can see what cost blocks compose the price and how these cost blocks relate to each other. Please note: any benefit will be reinvested in Misogi Dogi. All founders are making a living from their further professional activities. Misogi Dogi is a social business aiming first of all at creating non-monetary value: offer aikido equipment that is in line with the spirit of aikido and raise awareness that there are many ways to take the aikido spirit beyond the tatami mats. If you have any question related to price and costs, don’t hesitate to contact us.

Origin

Misogi Dogi uniforms are mainly made in Europe. A wonderful family business in Bosnia, also producing fashion for small designers, assembles the uniforms. The fabrics are weaved in mills located in Austria, Czech Republic and Turkey. These mills bought the yarn from Germany or Turkey. The organic cotton was grown and hand-picked on fields in Turkey, India and Kirgistan. We have visited the Turkish producers, the Austrian weaving mill and the Bosnian manufacture. You can read the reports on our blog.
