Wood-block printing on native cloth. The ground of the mainfield is red, the design of ogees enclosing single rosette-like flowers is of black, white, and green. The grounds of the three floral borders are of pink; in the main border yellow is used in addition to the colors of the mainfield. The design is probably older than the workmanship.
