Whats this piece?

Firstly, forgive my stupidity.. im no so familiar with anything exhaust related.. yet :)

What is this part called and whats its purpose? Im trying to figure out if this one is aftermarket or what since its got kind of a mesh-carbon fiber like material on the outside. I know its part of the downpipe. Ive checked majestic honda and the repair manual and neither labels it:

its a flex pipe. it doesnt bend in ludes for this reason: companies like DC or watever u have do make a TON diffferent headers. but alot of them will fit to other cars. cuz think bout it, to mass produce a model specific header for every car would mean THOUSANDS of headers and good luck selling all of em. thats why they have the flex pipe so it will be able to fit other cars with minimal modifications

flex pipes come on the stock exhaust, so dont think its only an aftermarket thing. spring bolts do the same thing. the bend and move so your exhaust isnt a solid piece and doesnt slam around
