Ito-hari (糸針)

A sewing set used for costumes. When an actor wears a costume, the costume is sewn in all the right places so that it does not come undone. Because the cloth is thick and finely woven, thick and long needles are usually used for the sewing. Thick and smooth twisted silk thread is employed, with the looped thread twisted together to make it even stronger. Several colours of thread, including white, black and red, are prepared to match the costume.
