Bujin's cotton hak is Heavy and if you have hard water it leaves white streaks through the fabric.
Actually, I believe that this is due to putting the hakama in the dryer.
It is also a royal B@#*h to fold however once the folds are set it becomes easier.
This, I agree with. I only wash my hakama about once a year, but when I do, I iron the heck out of it after hanging it out to dry.

One thing that will help to keep the pleats in a hakama is to be careful when you fold the hakama. Make sure you get the inner pleats as well as the front five. Most people do not even notice that there are several additional pleats "inside" the hakama...
