Eboshi-himo (烏帽子紐)

A set of braided cords used to secure a tate-eboshi (formal headwear with a peak), such as nashi-uchieboshi, shizukaeboshi, or daimyō-eboshi (aka hora-eboshi), to the performer’s head. A circular silk braided cord is used with a round cross-section that can be tied tightly without loosening. At one end of the eboshi-himo is a small loop (aka chi), and after passing this through the loop of string on the inner left and right sides of the eboshi hat, the other end is passed through the circle of the eboshi-himo and secured. Two strings make up a set. The colour is usually purple, but sometimes it is pale blue-green, depending on the role.
