Re: Taking care of your Hakama with heavy use?

Thank you! Although I'm still at 1st kyu. Here people give out the hakama somewhere along 1st kyu because they want people to wear a hakama at their shodan test. Strange

About the washing part, so no more than 1 wash/month? And since mine is cotton indigo, that means no washing machine either?

What do you think about these washing methods? Seem really convenient to me:
This fabric maven/seamstress says the info on the site is accurate. Especially about routine over-dying and the fact that you are NOT "fixing" or "setting" the dye but simply repeatedly washing to remove excess dye sitting on top of the fabric.
