Thanks for the links, Janet,
Actually I and my sensei had been really looking at a hemp gi, but the artisan quit making those. We even had fabric samples. Would you be willing to share any information you have as to why she (whomever that mysterious aiki-seamstress was, wink wink) put adult keikogi, aka the hemp gi's, on hold?
In case it's not clear, since sometimes posts on aikiweb are not appreciated for the intended appreciation and humor they are meant for, this is really a complement on your products and a genuine inquiry...not an attack. Although, I will grab your wrist if that would fascilitate things.
