SO WHAT IS HARAMAKI, ANYWAY?
Haramaki comes from the Japanese words hara, meaning the center of the body, and maki, meaning 'to wrap up', much in the same way a maki sushi roll is wrapped up. The haramaki originated as a form of Samurai armor, which gradually evolved into a special tubular garment worn around the midsection as a belly warmer.
WHY WEAR HARAMAKI?
Haramaki is worn to increase circulation in the internal organs, which generates warmth throughout the entire body. Once worn mainly as an undergarment in Japan, haramaki has seen a resurgence in recent years in Japanese fashion, serving as both a fashion and health accessory.
