Kigurumis (kee-goo-ROO-mee) are the onesies you wish you'd known about. We love the fact that you can never take yourself too seriously when you're wearing a hilarious animal costume.
The Kigurumi craze (unsurprisingly) originated in Japan, and the word means something like "wearing stuffed toy". The Kigurumi in our collection are made by the most reputable company in Asia. The level of detail put into faces, ears and tails makes them memorable and unique - they definitely stand out in a crowd!
Our Kigurumi are made of super-soft materials, making them ridiculously comfortable. They're made to fit the body loosely, so you can wear layers underneath (they'll even fit over your winter coat!).
Other popular terms are kigu, jumpsuit, one-piece, and animal pyjama or pajama. But no matter what you call them we're sure that you'll fall in love with them like we have.
You can learn even more about kigurumi on our mini-site.
Kigurumi.com is an distributor of authentic SAZAC kigurumi. SAZAC is Japan's number one kigurumi manufacturer, and the quality of SAZAC onesies is unmatched around the world. Unfortunately, this means that many other manufacturers will try (and fail!) to mimic SAZAC products. It doesn't take much to notice a major difference in quality between authentic kigurumi and imitators' attempts.
Fake. vs. Real: Stitch Kigurumi
For starters, imitation kigurumi are generally made of much thinner fabric--sometimes crushed velvet, which deteriorates much more quickly than fleece, cotton, and poly--and are poorly stitched together. Fakes tend to have wonky-looking faces: crossed eyes, asymmetrical features, and visible stitch defects. Colours won't be nearly as vivid, lining is often missing altogether, and features such as sleeves, tails, ears, wings, etc., will be overall much more floppy and downright sad-looking.
