Re: how do you wash a hakama?

[quote=Jill Nielsen]When I first made my hakama, I put a stitch of white thread at each "peak" and each "Valley"(SNIP)
To wash it: First spot clean any dirty spots that have appeared, then put some soap in warm water in the bathtub, and lower the hakama in unfolded, but extended, in the shape it would be if you were wearing it.(SNIP)Iron it once it is almost dry./QUOTE]

Jill, none of this is necessary with a tetron hak. Which is why I wear one rather than the cotton one I made....
