The Blue Label Tare is meticulously designed to offer kendo practitioners unmatched waist protection with an emphasis on protection, comfort and mobility. It combines traditional craftsmanship with innovative features to ensure practitioners can move freely while benefiting from superior protection.
Featuring a 12mm machine-stitched futon made from high-quality #4000 grade cotton, the Blue Label Tare provides excellent impact reduction, crucial for absorbing strikes during rigorous training sessions. The soft obi design ensures a snug fit, enhancing the wearer's comfort and allowing for tighter, more secure wrapping around the waist. This Tare is accented with synthetic leather and Gaku-sashi decoration, adding to its durability and elegance. The navy blue heri-leather and cloud-shaped (kumo-kata) design elements not only contribute to the Tare's aesthetic appeal but also its functional prowess, making it a standout choice for kendo practitioners who prioritize both style and protection in their gear.

Buying Custom Items
As a bespoke creation, the Blue Label Tare provides a level of fit and comfort unrivaled by similarly priced off-the-shelf items. Constructed from scratch for each customer, please anticipate a lead time of 3~4 months from payment to dispatch. Due to the customised nature of this kendogu, precise body measurements are essential. For guidance on how to measure yourself for this custom-made item, please follow our detailed instructions. To the best of your ability, please upload one document (i.e. PDF) with all measurement photos attached. We recommend that you seek the help of others when measuring and taking photos. If the craftsmen are unsure about the place/position of the measurements, we will double check with you before commencing with the build (you don't buy custom gear everyday, so we do everything we can to be thorough with sizes and measurements!)
