blending modern quilting & martial arts

Welcome to Kendo Girl. I make quilted bags & accessories for any martial art, sport, or really anything! I am proud to be the only fully handmade martial arts store in the world which means your purchase will not only support tiny businesses but your item will be completely and totally unique!

I have a passion for organic fabric, recycled kimono/obi, eco-friendly products, and a dedication to sustainability and renewable materials. I hope to play a significant part in doing away with mass-produced gear in favor of authentic textile art. I admire all martial artists and I will keep working hard to spoil you and all your gear. Your orders keep my little shop going and I appreciate each and every one of you!

Thank you very sincerely for your support of my little shop, and for your visit to Kendo Girl.

Frequently asked questions


If there is any problem whatsoever with your purchase, please let me know and I will do my best to make it right. I make each item by hand and check over it thoroughly before preparing for shipping, but if I miss something - just send me a quick message. I will take care of you.


I offer free domestic shipping and usually ship first class unless it is too heavy, in which I will ship priority via flat rate padded envelope. For international orders, I will do my absolute best to keep the package light enough to ship first class and if needed, I will refund any shipping overages.

Do you actually do kendo?

Yes! I hold kendo shodan in the Midwest Kendo Federation, United States. I don't have a rank in quilting, though.

Oh no! My item has a rip! What do I do?

Don't worry. Fabric wears over time no matter how strong I sew or how careful you are with your item. I am happy to make repairs no matter how long you have had your bag. I am happy to give "facelifts" to bags that need a little repair or sprucing up, too. Just send me a message and I am happy to make your bag like new!
