This is a "bandori" which is a pad for backpack. Bandori was mainly made in Shonai region in Yamagata or a part of Niigata prefecture in Tohoku district and it was made by men in winter when it snowed heavily. There is few men who make bandori these days. It is made of rice straw for the base and outside is woven of hemp which is kumonosu ( spider web ) weave so this one is called "kumonosu bandori". The belts are made of rice straw and colorful cotton shreds plaited. In excellent condition. Mid 20th century. W:34cm L:66cm
