The ground is of reddish violet satin. What can be seen of the design of stems and conventional leaves and flowers, placed close together to give an all-over effect, is woven with yellow and white silk and silver and gold thread. The pattern is woven with long loose threads which give the effect of embroidery and which have been much worn.
