This is a man's heko obi - an informal silk version often worn with a casual kimono. It's a wide, very long, single layer of silk that is often solid color for most of the length with shibori patterning on each end. They are typically just wound around the waist a few times and tied in a loose knot in the back (see photo example).

This heko obi is black with a shibori design at each end that features waves and the V-silhouette of shorebirds in flight. Lots of pucker still remains in the shibori design.

Heko obi are also fashionable and warm as scarves or draped over a rod for an interior design piece.
