The ground is of white linen. The design is partly woven and partly embroidered with white silk. Bands of fancy weaving separate bands with sprays of flowers and triangles made up of blocks. Across the end are lines forming diamonds and enclosing sprays of flowers. Knotted into the end is a fringe of twisted threads.
