The Akebono are made from polyester that has been specially woven in the " nami tsumugi" style, anmed after the wave-like patterns it produces. This gives the hakama a luzurious, yet traditional look befitting of iaido practice.

Tsumugi textiles are traditionally made by using silk floss which is spun by hand into yarn. Because of the intensive production process it was once considered inferior to regular silk as it took a lot of time and work to weave the yarn into a proper garment. Nowadays it's recognized as an important traditional Japanese handicraft that is internationally recognized for it's quality.

This is a polyester based tsumugi fabric that is perfect for iaido hakama. The slightly rough texture makes it very similar to the fabric that is used for old casual kimono wear. It also has a slightly more matte appearance compared to regular Polyester based fabrics. Being made of polyester is extremely durable and upkeep is very straightforward.

The Akebono is made by the experienced tailors of our Heian workshop, based at our headquarters in Nishijin, Kyoto. Featuring stitched inner-pleats and a slim obi with extra stitching for easy tying, it maintains a beautiful and sober appearance throughout training.

The comfort of Tsumigi weave combined with the fast drying of polyester makes it an ideal pair of hakama for hot and humid keiko.
