Luca Brown-Yanagisawa haramaki body warmer belly band

Luca Brown-Yanagisawa haramaki: belly band     

Nukunuku = warm and cosy (Japanese). This is how we want you to feel so we brought the haramaki concept to the UK in 2010. Haramaki translates as belly (hara) wrap (maki) - a band of material wrapped around your middle. You can tuck them in and wear them invisibly or have a layer of colour over or under your clothes or just peeking out when you sit down or bend over.

Also called waist warmers and belly bands, these body warmers have been worn for centuries in Japan. The samurai wore them beneath their armour and they are experiencing a fashion revival in Japan. They are great for doing yoga, outdoor sports, cyclists, pregnant and breast feeding mums, those who feel the cold and anyone who wants to cover up the gap between top and waistband especially when sitting or bending over. Back fat, muffin tops and 'whale tail' banished from sight. Italians call them 'Pancera'. 

We now have our own range in 5 colours and 4 sizes made here in the UK. We have gone to great lengths to find the best quality stretch cotton. Our aim is to produce high quality bands that will last and wash well. In addition we have beautiful limited edition Ninja Haramakis designed by Brighton based artist Yuki Snow.

I lived in Japan and after discovering haramaki I was hooked. Now I feel not quite dressed without one. Make haramaki part of your everyday wardrobe. Wear them in bed. Go on, give yourself a hug - put on a haramaki.
