Poly-tetron is much more carefree for daily use as cotton is harder to maintain the pleats. The construction incorporates the same reinforcement technology found in our more expensive garments. We offer Black, White, Ice White, Navy, as well as Lavender and Rose for children (Lavender and Rose for adult size are custom order, it will take longer for deliver). If you have some sizing challenges you might want to look at our custom hakama and uwagi. The price is quite competitive and we're able to tailor fit the hakama to your needs.
