Sash is made of orange polyester satin with brocade key pattern. Ends cut (unhemmed). Used by men to wrap around their waist (wrap around like the sunrise- clockwise) (ibid). Sashes are tightly worn around the abdomen to keep inner organs in place when riding across the steppe. Implements, such as knives, snuff bottles, etc, are suspended from the sash. The outside is where the pattern is shinier.
