As with the other items in this set, the 1.8bu Black Label tare is a premium hand-stitched piece of kendogu. Its #8,000 grade cotton ensures durability, while the stitch width allows for a flexible and secure fit around the waist. The special blend of sheep wool and cotton, and trim made with Fujioka smoked deer leather from New Zealand means that this tare can easily be shaped according to preference. Additionally, we have tapered the himo in order to make it easier to tie up. 

Through our research of hand-made kendo equipment we have found that a 1.8bu stitch is the ideal width to provide protection whilst also remaining flexible – and the more it is used, the better the fit becomes.
