About Us

We started as two friends from Kauai and California who loved to surf and traveled to Bali in search of perfect waves. Jiu-jitsu came around in 2008 and we wanted to represent Hawaii and Kauai on the mats but could not find any brands that catered specifically to the islands. The idea was born, and we set out to create a Kauai style Gi built locally from our own hands and hearts.

Partnering with a local Balinese family, we founded a small boutique workshop where everything could be handmade with the highest attention to detail and quality control. The pattern and blueprint for a lightweight travel kimono was developed from our own lifestyle needs and necessities. They are perfect for those who travel frequently and/or train in hot and humid climates.

Our batches have always been small and personal, aiming for quality over quantity. We source the best raw materials for production and maintain a high attention to detail in our craftsmanship. Since 2008 we have supplied handmade uniforms and travel goods, built with heart by a small dedicated team of Balinese seamstresses. These durable products will last you many years with proper care. Your support also directly affects the lives of the families at work behind this project. Train safe and travel smart. See you on the mat!

Aloha and Mahalo for your kokua,
