Limited Edition Gi Design: AZUL

Allright, I just ticked off one more of my bucket list.

Our first limited Gi design: "AZUL".
Azul means "blue" in Portuguese.

Blue is the colour of our Auckland rugby team.

Why use Rangitoto Island design?

Rangitoto Island is a volcanic island in the Hauraki Gulf near Auckland, New Zealand. The 5.5 km wide island is an iconic and widely visible landmark of Auckland with its distinctive symmetrical shield volcano cone rising 260 metres (850 ft) high over the Hauraki Gulf.[1][2] Rangitoto is the most recent and the largest (2311 hectares)[3] of the approximately 50 volcanoes of the Auckland volcanic field.[2] It is separated from the mainland of Auckland's North Shore by the Rangitoto Channel. Since World War II it has been linked by a causeway to the much older, non-volcanic Motutapu Island.[4]

I used to "collect" shoroyroll gis and love their contrast stitching and unique theme for each edition.

This gi design is inspired by Auckland (blue, volvanic island).

I am already start thinking of future edition inspired on different cities like Christchurch and Maori carving like Koru.
