White linen or cotton: on the sides are silk selvedges and two stripes of white silk. The design consists of a group of conventional flower forms, worked with green, pink and dark red silk, and silver and gold thread. The pink and green threads are sparsely wound with metal and the yellow foundation of the gold thread shows through in many places.
