Where do you get one?

How must do they cost and are they worth it?

I understand Hemp is an excellant cloth for a Gi.

I believe that there's a person in Northern California (Ukiah?) who makes dogi out of hemp. If I remember correctly, she has an advertisement in the back of Aikido Today Magazine...

They just came out with a jiu jitsu gi made out of hemp, the weight seems perfect for Aikido. I was thinking of getting one for Judo practice since it breathes better than cotton and resists odors.

The jiu jitsu gi may be a better choice since it is white (not sand colored), has a closer fit, and is much less expensive.
