$19.00




Though, Japan valued men over women, women played an important role in the society of medieval Japan. They were the backbone that protected and cared for their family. Throughout these times, Japanese women were mothers, entertainers, and even warriors. The amount of freedom a woman received depended greatly on a her social class.

For instance...

SAMURAI WOMEN
Samurai women were trained to fight as a samurai does. They at times fought alongside men in battle, though this was quite rare. The ideal samurai woman was docile, humble, and submissive to a man. It might seem to be a strange idea that a woman that was sure to hardly ever fight in a battle, be taught to fight. Well, the main purpose in this was so that the Samurai women could defend their homes and children in times of dire need.

HIGH-RANKING WOMEN
Women of high class had the littlest amount of freedom in medieval Japan. Women of high status in Japan could not escape marriage. the purpose of marriage between two families was to create an alliance, which would make sure the safety of the clan was in good hands. Families always tried to choose the man of another family that would increase their social status and affluence. The only way that they could remain single was if they became a monk or a nun in Buddhism. Though, after a woman did this her social ranking became significantly lower and she was from then on perceived as a deceitful and amoral woman.

GEISHA WOMEN
The idea of a geisha is severely misinterpreted. The term geisha is usually understood to be a glorified mistress of a man of high status, in colloquial terms, a whore. This is definitely not factual. Geishas were actually amongst the most respected women in Japanese society. As young girls geishas are actually called maikoas. Before becoming a geisha, a maikoa learns how to converse with men, perform traditional dances to perfection, and sing and play stringed instruments.

Geishas were of great use to daimyos. Sometimes, geishas were sent to spy on or assassinate other territorial landlords. Although, any daimyo could easily sense that a geisha was sent to kill him; he had no defense against her. This was attributed to the fact that she was so respectable. The only way he could prevent himself from being killed was to have someone kill her before she could him.

LOW-RANKING WOMEN
Women of low class typical had jobs cooking, cleaning, and caring for the children of wealthier families. These women also farmed alongside other men and had the freedom to use the money that they earned as they wished, to pay taxes, provide their children with clothing. Whatever was necessary could be taken care of. Women of low-class had more freedom when it came to marriage and had say in whatever many she ended up marrying.

IN GENERAL
All women had certain duties that they were expected to fulfill. They were made only to serve their father, husband, and son throughout her lifetime. Women followed this simple rule: As a young girl, she obeyed her father; upon marriage, she obeys her husband; and when widowed, she must then obey her son. As soon as a woman married she was assumed to bear her husband a son. If a women became widowed, she could never marry again. This was a liberty that only men possessed.

Samurai women weren’t the only ones that fought. All Japanese women had to partake in some sort of fighting during their life. They were required to protect their homes during wartime, while their husbands were away. Without Japanese women this well-rounded structure, typical of Japanese society, would be difficult to upkeep.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can your decals be removed once applied ?

Sure.. yes they can! All of our decals can be easily be removed once applied and no glue residues will remain, nor are they supposed to damage the surface on where they were originally applied to!

We never had any macbook, laptop, wall, glass, paint, stone or generic surface damaged by these decals... however, some common sense is advised.. for instance, do not place the decal on a hot surface or it can melt (this is vinyl, not iron).. not use the decals on dusty or moist surfaces because it will void adhesions (although vinyl is much more mouldable and has far better mechanical caracteristics.. if common duck tape does not stick, chances are that vinyl will not as well).

In doubt.. please ask.. we will reply ASAP.

How soon can you dispatch my order ? How about returns ?

Well.. i usually do it in the same day but i do reserve up to 24 hours in order to ship any ordered item.

You can return your order to us as long as it does not show signs of usage. Usage signs do void any refund as this makes the item unsellable for another client (if you try to apply a vinyl to a wall before testing compability we may not accept return as particles of dust and residues will remain on the decal). Please always test wall compability before ordering.. moist and dusty walls do not accept vinyl decals.

All returns costs are also supported by the client and a restock fee of 20% may be deducted on refund. Returns from outside EU, must state this on the packing for customs purpoes or we can not accept them back.

Do your T-Shirts fade in time ?

Well...nothing lasts forever, but it is not expected to fade! We use a special vulcanization technic in order to print our shirts.. so no color fade is expected. A special type of colored rubber is injected on the fabric making it a permanent die.

THESE ARE NOT A PRINTED TSHIRTS. We vulcanize a polyurethane membrane on top of the fabric forcing it to penetrate inside the cotton mesh by a special heat and localized pressure procedure.. this way it becomes permanent and VERY durable. Using this procedure, your design wont fade or chip off. The shirt has a soft touch as well, very similar to silkscreen with plastisol inks (softer)..

Black will stay black.. and white will stay white.. as well as all other colors. Don't worry about that!!

The design i see in the sample image is the design i will get?

Yes it is.. what you see is what you get! However, on some decals (or other products), for presentation purposes, the design may be mirrored.

In all cases, the final image for reference, would be the black and white sample image representation present in all item's descriptions. This means that the application example photo may or may not be mirrored . You, the client, unless otherwise requested, will always receive the design with the orientation present on the black and white sample image of this particular ordered product.

If no black and white image is present as a representation of the final design on the product you have chosen, then the orientation of the sample image on the application example is to be considered as final.

Wholesale availability

Yes... this is possible.. but only for bulk orders.

Please contact me with the amount of items you would like to have and i will get back to you with a final proposition.

Don't forget to specify your location as well.. :)

If you are a business within EU please send us your VAT ID as well for better quotation.

Can you do other sizes as well ?

Sure.. no problem on it!

Just request a custom job and i will quote you the best price for it. But remember that small sized jobs can't always be done due to material limitations (we are speaking in sub-millimeter details.. i mean.. those itsibitsi tinywini little dots that you wished to cut for your pet ant as a necklace... sorry can't do those... ...yet.. ^_^)

What supplies brands do you use?

Unless otherwise stated on the description of the product, all Tshirts are made of 100% pure cotton by the American "Fruit of the Loom" brand, Rolly, American Apparel or MK.

As for vinyl goes.. we use mainly Ritrama, Oracal, MultiFix, 3M, VF3, Avery and Hexis. There are a lot of brands for vinyl but we do prefer these as they are the most stable in production (and they not cheap by the way).

We use good quality vinyl with exterior durability of at least 5 years (usually we do use 5 to 7 year grade vinyl for exterior conditions.. which means that on the interiors these can last for about 12 years or more).

On some cases, depending only of the design and placement destination we may use other types of vinyls.

Can you do a personalized order for me?

Sure i can. Just contact me and i will quote it for you!

Different designs with the same square size can have different costs as the difficulty in cutting may be higher or lower. Also, the chosen production material will differentiate the costs.

All jobs are different .. so just contact me and i am sure we will manage a good deal for both of us.

What is the conversion between Cm and Inches ?

Since BrutalVisual Studio is based on Europe we use the metric system.

This means that all measurements are made in centimeters, but don't worry it's easy to convert :

1) 1 Inch = 2.54 centimeters
.. or ...
2) 1 centimeter = 0.3937 centimeters .

On the other hand :

1) 1 foot = 0.3048 meters
.. or ...
2) 1 meter = 3.2808 feet


Another thing to have in consideration is that :

1) 100 centimeters = 1 meter
.. like as ...
2) 12 inches = foot

Please also note that : 1 centimeter can be noted as 1 cm, and.. 1 Inch can be noted as 1 In.

I like one of your designs but i would like to change it a little bit.. can you do this for me?

Yes... i can.

All products can have minor adjustments on designs if required by the buyer and those are FREE. I can also make small insertions of names, slogans, brands, logos of other small taglines on the current design.

Just make a comment when ordering and i will get back to you after the order is complete, or... you can contact me right now and say what is on your mind.

No extra-charge is done assuming that these are minor changes without too much time consuming. If you require no changes, well.. then you just have to finish your order and wait for the delivery.

All FREE-OF-CHARGE modifications or addons will be done in the same color and material as the chosen design.
