Into a foundation of heavy burlap, rags are hooked, in a design with a light brown star as a center, surrounded by concentric circles of red, gray, blue, brown, and purple diamonds. The background is dull black. In the corners are bunches of red and purple roses. Narrow bands of gray and red border the rug.
