Fundoshi Shorts/Underwear (Loincloth)
“Tepa” means loincloth in a language called Ainu. (Ainu is an indigenous ethnic group of people who have lived in Hokkaido, northern Japan, as well as in Russia, the Kuril Islands and Sakhalin.)
Kyoko is the creator of TEPA Fundoshi shorts. She says, “World peace begins with the lower half of our bodies!”
She strongly believes if women took care of their precious womb with more care and respect, blood and chi (energy) would circulate there, and it would not only give us more vitality, but it would also allow us to be kind to others around us.
“If our inner body is tension free, our hearts also become relaxed,” Kyoko said.
Her underwear makes you feel as though you’re not wearing anything. She hopes you will feel liberated and discover a new you!
I, the owner of kira kira kira life, first met TEPA’s underwear when my mother bought it for me. Immediately, I fell in love with it. I was looking for “just the right” underwear for a while. I love that this is organic cotton, handmade, and it does not constrain my body yet very cute. I feel like I am wearing the air.
Kyoko added, “When you use the bathroom, you will not feel the stress you may have been experiencing with a strange odor or color of discharge. One of the reasons why vaginal discharge is produced is to get rid of bacteria. She believes and experiences that TEPA’s Fundoshi shorts can reduce the discharge by providing our vaginas with a healthy environment. I agree with her. And most of all, it will keep you warm, which is good for our reproductive organs.
