The two ends of the towel have been sewed together to form a table cover. The borders of palm leaf design run across the end and part way up the side: above the lower border are three vases of flowers. The piece is worked with three shades of blue, violet, green, deep pink, and yellow silk, and gold and silver thread. Sewed to the edge is a narrow piece of gold and silver lace.
