Ethical Policy

 Ichiban is still a small business compared to the majority of the chain stores found on the High Street today. Although this means we may not be able to shout our policies from the roof tops and have specific ‘Corporate Statements’. However, we are proud that we do whatever we can to make our business ethical. As the world faces ever increasing environmental changes, we are committed to playing our small but important part.

We are constantly striving to reduce the amount of energy we use in the Office and our Stockroom. We also have a keen in-store recycling policy, in which all packaging from deliveries is stored for future use, and any recyclable waste is collected by our local authority’s recycling programmes where available.

We hope this goes some way to answer your questions about our ethical trading policy.  Please do not hesitate to contact us if you would like any further information on info@ichibaninternational.com

The sizes go according to the person’s height. Every person comes in different shapes and sizes, therefore Ichiban has created the above chart to assist you in choosing the correct size.  Please note that this is only a guideline. Dimensions may vary slightly from one batch to another.

Belt length - see formula below.

Belt

When the belt is made up, lift both ends and ensure that they do not pass your chin.
This is to prevent it from slapping your face when kicking.

To assist you could apply the following formula:

for the Regular belt (4cm width) :
• (Waist in cm) x 2 + 110 to 120 cm (depending on if you want a standard length belt or long hanging belt. This can in turn be dependent on the amount of embroidery.)

for the the Wide belt (4.5cm width):
• (waist in cm) x 2 + 120 to 130cm (depending on if you want a standard length belt or long hanging belt. This can in turn be dependent on the amount of embroidery.)
