Each of our Custom Hakama are completely made to order, by professional tailors here in Kyoto, Japan. Every effort is made to ensure that each garment is produced with the utmost care and attention and that no corners are cut in their manufacturing. For this reason, production usually takes around 4-6 weeks as standard.
...and the product is great too.
It's always a bit nerving to order customised products for the first time. The first orders typically are not quite what you want but require minor adjustments.
I was asking for a non-default customisations for embroidery. While there was a problem, those always happen and what matters is how those get solved. The customer service helped to fix my issues and in the end, the hakama is wonderful now. The length is spot on, the fabric feels warm and heavy.
