This is personal ornaments of a horse used in the Tohoku district for Edo period. The item giving glory to a horse is called Umakake. This is dyed with a natural indigo plant and other dye. As for this, a thread spun by hand by cotton cloth is used. The influential person of the village had this type of item. In this district, the upper Tsutsugaki technology was used for the personal ornaments of the horse.
