Kokoro Haramaki for Mums
Let this traditional Japanese tummy wrap provide the comfort and support you need as your baby grows. When it comes to looking after yourself, the Japanese philosophy is to keep the core warm and snug. And there’s no better way of maximizing your comfort during and after pregnancy than with this versatile Kokoro haramaki, a traditional Japanese garment worn to maintain warmth and well-being.
Made from 97% pure brushed cotton and 3% elastic, the Haramaki is warm, supportive, easy to wash and very comfortable to wear. It will grow with you during your pregnancy and return to its original size once you’ve had your baby.
But you don’t have to take our word for it.
The haramaki is based on a style of garment that established its place in Japanese society many centuries ago. Among its users were the Empress Jin-Gu, who used her royal sash as a supporting garment while her pregnancy developed.
Following the lead of the Empress, Japanese women began wearing the sash on a specific day - the 'Day of the Dog' in the fifth month of pregnancy, as this was believed to bring good fortune for expectant mothers. As time went on, an increasing western lifestyle took root in Japan, so a more convenient form of this supporting sash gradually developed into the convenient and comfortable haramaki we have today.
You’ll love how the haramaki stretches to support you as your baby grows inside you. Even after baby arrives, the snug support of its double-ridged layers continues. You can even gently raise the Haramaki and put it to good use as a feeding cover, if you wish.
Enjoy this haramaki’s perfect fit during your very special time.
