Summary

Shinshi is a bamboo stick with needles attached on both sides and used to stretch side to side or diagonally the width of the fabric. 

It needs about 10% longer than the width of the fabric because it is used by bending from the back side of the fabric.

Stretching and hanging the fabric is a traditional process of Katazome for evenly dyeing or sizing. Kinubari Shinshi has to be used for only silk cloth.
