Re: Ironing a Hakama?

Hi Marco, I'd say to iron a hakama you need to know how to iron. Shirts are ironed by following the structure. A hakama is no different. I'd say ironing a hakama is even more simple and straight-forward than ironing a dress shirt. Can you iron a shirt?

If you can fold a hakama, just iron the parts in the same sequence as you fold it. I mean, you probably smooth things out with your hands, and work from the inside to the outside. It's the same thing. Just pretend the iron is your hand.
