Re: Bujin Hakamas

if you must try Bujin, go with the black. As I stated before, black doesn't bleed!
I bought a navy bujin one and had no bleeding whatsoever... errr... that came out all wrong I meant that the hakama didnīt bleed at all, of course However, a friend bought a black one from bujin which he had to soak in vinegar (a slightly better alternative to the urine methinks ) and wash a few times before it stopped bleeding. I think it may have to do with the washing method you choose - mine is a dry clean one whereas my friendīs is a machine wash one.

I would be interested in hearing what other peopleīs experience is in that regards as I am thinking about purchasing another hak from bujin but would like to avoid the bleeding problem...

Warm regards,
