What is an Eri-shin?
An eri-shin 衿芯 (えりしん) is a long, thin piece of plastic or cardboard that serves as a collar stiffener. It is threaded between the han-eri (half collar) and juban collar to create a nice, smooth, winkle free collar. It is important for all kimono styles...but is not required for wearing yukata (although - if you want, you can wear eri-shin with yukata).



Materials Needed:
Template plastic
OR
Thick, yet flexible cardboard (please note - cardboard tends to be a once off use)



Measurements
Length Metric: Between 70cm to 95cm depending on the kimono (my eri-shin is 81cm long)
Width Metric: 4-5cm (my eri-shin is 4cm - but I would prefer a 5cm one)

Length Imperial: Between 27.5" to 37.5" depending on the kimono (my eri-shin is approx 32" inches long)
Width Imperial: 1 9/12" - 2" (my eri-shin is 1 9/12" - but I would prefer a 2" one)



Directions:
1. On your template plastic or cardboard - rule your measurements out. You should have a long thin strip.

2. Draw lines to round off the edges (this helps preventing corners from getting snagged when you push the eri-shin under your han-eri).

3. Cut out the eri-shin.

4. Volia! You are done! Now go and thread your eri-shin through your han-eri!

Old thread, I know, but I'm wondering what the differences are between the two eri-shin shapes?  What are the advantages to having a curvy one vs. a straight one?  Are there certain kimono that each are used with, or a certain neckline?

Do you have to have a haneri to use an eri-shin? Or can it somehow be put directly into the juban?

On my nagajuban I can put the eri shin in. But infact, the nagajuban has a included han eri  :)  so I put the eri shin under the han eri. It is easy to remove which is quite comfortalbe because for folding the nagajuban I have to do that. I´ve got an eri sugata (easy collar), too. Even in this I can put the eri shin.

But by the way, for the kimono itself I use eri shin, too. On this way it is more stiff while wearing it. Being cheap I´ve bought several of them.
