Inspired by the colorful favela landscapes of Rio de Janeiro, and the vibrant people that inhabit them.
After a hugely successful collaboration with our talented friends at DojoChimp in Northern California (see the Vitruvian gi for context), we've teamed up with them yet again for another exciting project!
Once again, we worked in painstaking detail on the design and function of this piece, to create something that we feel is special and unique; something that we ourselves would want. And since this is intended as a small batch art project, we've made a limited quantity that will be available only while supplies last.
With interior artwork that features an illustration piece we commissioned from Tokyo-based Brazilian-Canadian visual artist Carlos Sulpizio (originally done as an oil painting in fact), this gi takes its inspiration and energy from the colorful favela landscapes of Rio de Janeiro, and the vibrant people that inhabit them. The members of our team here at Jits have spent a lot of time frequenting many of Rio's favelas over the years, and we've come to have a special connection with the role that jiu-jitsu plays in these communities. This gi pays homage to all of the warmth, energy and gritty beauty that exists in the slums of the 'marvellous city'.
We poured our creative efforts into the nuanced detailings that make this project special, and ended up with a gi that is both a pleasure to look at and more importantly, a pleasure to wear. The jacket is heavier-gauge, with a super solid construction. The pants employ a unique reinforcement that covers extra area. The modern, perfectly-cut DojoChimp fit rounds it out.
Produced in a black 550g pearl weave with color pop accents to complement the internal artwork, this special edition gi gives a nod to what makes one of the most beautiful cities in the world as beautiful as it is.
We hope you enjoy using the special edition Favela gi as much as we enjoyed developing it!

You can phone 415-484-2242, Monday-Friday 9AM-5PM PST, or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please have your order confirmation on-hand.
Normal wear and tear is not covered by this warranty. Only incomplete, incorrect or damaged shipments are covered.

When you place your order, please refer to the sizing chart in the product images and ensure that you have chosen the right size, to avoid disappointment when your gi arrives. If in doubt about size, you can email us at email@example.com prior to placing your order.
If you ordered the wrong size, or the gi doesn't fit you quite the way you expected based on the sizing chart, you can still return it or exchange it for a better fitting size, as long as you have not worn, washed, used or altered the gi in any way (and as long as there is still remaining stock of other sizes). In this case, you will be responsible for the return shipping. Once received, it will be inspected by DojoChimp's Quality Control Team, and if approved, we will then ship out another gi in the size you have requested (assuming there is remaining stock), or you will be refunded the full price of the product, minus shipping and handling fees.

In that case, the only option will be to either keep the gi or to get a refund.
