But anyways, I followed the tag that says it's machine washable and low dryer, but I think I will hang it dry. (it's in the washer now as I'm typing), as far as the koshita breaking down, I hope washing it in the machine just this once
(famous last words?)
Any more advice from anyone?? [/b]
On a more serious vien. I really have done those things to my bujin hakama and it really does hold the pleats. Don't remember the material (probably duck) but it wasn't the cotton. It should be fine.
