Belt Washing and Embroidery
I was in my dojo's dressing room, and I noticed that the yudanshas' belts have embroidery on them.
This got me thinking about what happened to my belt when I washed it - it shrunk about 5 inches or so. If it were a black belt with embroidery, wouldn't the shrinking ruin the embroidery?
I know that there are a few threads about washing belts, but none of them address this specific issue. Thanks!
