Faixa Rua


Kimono Care

If you are careful to wash your new BJJ kimono in the correct way we
hope that it will serve you well for years to come.

Washing your Faixa Rua kimono before it is used for the first time
will increase the life of your gi, a kimono that has not been washed
has not reached it's full strength so please, wash your gi before
using it.

Never dry your gi in a tumble dryer as it may shrink dramatically and
damage the rubber inside the collar.

Always wash your gi after each training session, leaving it soaked in
sweat in the bottom of your bag will reduce the strength of the fabric
and reduce the life of your gi.

The way in which you wash and dry your Faixa Rua kimono will
dramatically affect the life and size of your gi. We have built a
degree of shrinkage (approx 10%) into our kimonos which will occur
gradually over time when washing at 30 degrees or less although it is
possible to accelerate this process by washing hotter, a 60 degree
wash will have a noticeable effect and a 90 degree or higher wash may
shrink your gi considerably. We advise you to wash the kimono several
times before attempting to shrink it and you do so entirely at your
own risk.

The best way to dry a gi is to hang it in the sun, if this is not
possible then we suggest drying over a radiator or just hang it on the
back of a chair, remember never to use a tumble dryer.

If you are purchasing a coloured kimono it is advisable to seal the
colour using a quality colourfast product or some colour leakage may
