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.

Having lived in a area that had it's water stored in limestone caves hard water lives white streaks whether or not you you machine dry it. a cup of white Vinegar in the rinse helps but hard water is notorious for leaving "deposits" I'm happy to have the local drycleaners actually make my Hakama Look pretty about 3-4 times a year.

Suck, Squeeze, Bang, Blow
That's what makes my Thumper go
