Re: Indigo hakama
Meh, for $10 I'm not that concerned. But the hakama does have a label that states it's 100% cotton, and I'm reasonably sure that's what it is, although possibly it has some kind of coating. The pleats aren't permapress, by the way, but as I said, they held remarkably well.
Anyway, I've ironed and folded it and put it away for now. They may come in useful some day, but all things considered I think I'm better off going with polyester (on the cheaper side) or silk (on the super expensive side) in future.
