Habrok’s Tactica Leve February 21, 2018 by JJM Staff It’s no secret that most of the world’s gis are made in Pakistan. Many factories churn out gis for various brands made to their client’s specifications. Their clients are the companies that sell this gis under their brand name.

Vertically Integrated Gi Brand: A First in the World of Jiu-Jitsu

As most BJJ practitioners know, the vast majority of the gis in the world are produced in Pakistan. This is not only because of the rich textile manufacturing industry that exists there, but also because of the domestic sourcing of super high quality - and low cost - cotton crops. Over the past decades, this all came together resulting in a bonafide manufacturing centre for jiu-jitsu gis - and sporting goods in general - in Pakistan. But there has always been a disconnect between the manufacturers (who in large part don't necessarily understand the world of jiu-jitsu) and the jiu-jitsu...
