The ground of the main field is woven with white linen and pink cotton. The pink and white stripes are detailed with embroidered spots of red cotton. On one end is a panel surrounded by a broad border of what may represent the facades of castles. Enclosed by this border is a symmetrical form, possibly meant to represent a tree. Joined to one end by fagoting is a piece of red cotton.
