Embroidery Location
Ordering a product (e.g., dogi, obi, hakama, etc.) and ordering embroidery for that product are separate transactions.
If you would like to request embroidery, please go to the "Embroidery" page and select the product you wish to embroider and the embroidery details.

■ Belt embroidery (excluding unbleached white belts, bleached white belts, and colored belts), is done before sewing the belt closed.
Traces of the embroidery can not be seen on the reverse side of the belt.
(Standard/embroidered before assembly) and this means different characters can be on front and reverse sides of the same side of the belt.
Since Iwata Shokai uses the above method, the cross-stitch thread is visible over the embroidery.
For White belts, bleached belts, and colored belts, which are in stock, there is no visible cross-stitch through the embroidery.
This is because we embroider these belts after.
