Kendogi are martial arts jackets meant for Kendo, a sport practicing swordsmanship with wooden swords. Kendo armor was introduced when the sport was introduced in the late Edo period, far after Samurai were abolished from Japan. Modern Kendogi are made in the same traditional styles as those adopted generations ago.
Kendogi are made of a thickly-embroidered cotton Sashi-Ori fabric. Each is dyed a deep color that fades with time.
