JETRO interviewed Ms. Julie Goodwin of Julie Goodwin Ltd., who introduced kokoro haramaki to the UK and Europe. She explained how closely she has worked with the Japanese manufacturer to bring high-quality, authentic Japanese haramakis into the UK and European market. In addition to the UK, kokoro haramaki has been received well in Nordic countries and recently started in Ireland. She was also requested to provide advice to Japanese companies regarding business models and marketing strategies to bring Japanese goods to the UK and Europe.

DON'T LET YOUR TUMMY GET COLD
Wearing a gilet or body warmer such as a haramaki, a Japanese bandage style stomach wrap, can help beat the cold.
'Wearing a gilet may help maintain body temperature,' says vascular surgeon Eddie Chaloner.
'When the limbs are exposed to colder temperatures than the torso, blood vessels in the arms and legs constrict. Blood then bypasses the limbs and floods to the torso.
'Being wrapped around the stomach will help the body to maintain its core temperature so that it doesn't lose heat.'
