JAPANESE TRADITIONAL STITCHING
Traditional Japanese style glued and double bounded stitching. The neoprene is glued edge to edge using a two part chemically cured flexible resin, and is stitched using a curved needle which only penetrates half way through the material. All major stress points in the suit are double glued and blind stitched on both sides thereby producing no holes while maintaining a strong hold on the neoprene where it is needed. We use stretch tape on all major stressed areas allowing for maximum strength and unrestricted stretch.
Why not do the entire suit this way? You would loose movement and flex in the neoprene and also have a lot more stitching to rub against your skin.
Glidzjapan uses the finest quality stitching material which is available. We use different thicknesses and our water tight stitching is cleverly calculated to ensure you gain maximum stretch in the neoprene, giving you ultimate flexibility.
