Origin BJJ – American Made Gi

Weave it. Stitch it. Trim it. Born in the USA.

Origin BJJ is an innovative sporting & lifestyle apparel company that is one-of-a-kind in the industry of the design and manufacturing of Brazilian jiu-jitsu (BJJ) competition gear (known as a ‘gi’) in America. How did this come about? Inspired by uncomfortable and ill-fitting gis, Origin owner and BJJ black belt athlete/instructor Pete Roberts decided to design gis tailored specifically for the needs of a BJJ fighter – but more importantly, to manufacture and produce them in his local community in Industry, Maine. Today, not only does Origin produce the only fully American-made BJJ competition gear, they have taken the manufacturing of gis to a new level by rescuing a cotton loom from a dilapidated textile factory, refurbishing it, and are now able to weave their own American pearl cotton fabric, dye it, cut it, stitch it, trim it and deliver professional-grade sporting equipment for BJJ practitioners in the USA and around the world.
