I'm considering purchasing an indigo hakama and would be gratdful for the comments and advice of those who have already purchaed one or those who have knowledge of the care of one.
I've read with interest the article by C.M. Shifflet on the setting of the dye and I've seen a Tozando indigo hakama at my dojo. The only other one for aikidoka seems to be the Iwata brand. Anyone seen both and can make comparisons? Any other recommended brands? What are the pros and cons of owning an indigo hakama as opposed to an ordinary cotton one apart from it's unique colour?
Thanks for your help.
