- Jan 1, 2004Besides the futon-you can also lay your clothes,
folded on 3 foled sheets- then add another folded
sheet on top an pile about 2 folded blankets.
That is of course, if you don't use your garb
regularly, if not- hang hakama with trouser hangers,
clipping the waistband in the top clamps. It also
depends on what kind of fabric your hakama are made
of. Storing can be done by folding your hakama, then
wraping it in white tissue paper or washi, then store
flat in a chest or tansu. Those vacuum-seal
space-saver bags work well for brocade,an keep the
bugs and moths out. Also after washing and drying of
regular hakama, it is good to iron them using a spray
starch, but I usually don't do that for my kendo ones,
cause they get all bishu-bishu anyways-unless i am
storing them of course.
Note: Kendo Hakama and keikogi are dyed with
indigo-(the ones from japan anyways) and will bleed
everytime you wash them til they fade to a nice, soft
greyish. so don't wash them with light colors. (hehe
yes, they sometimes dye your skin or underclothes
after a rigourous workout)
