Of a 15th century type of velvet, the design adapted from various sources. The ground is irregular green, and yellowish green velvet, the design of conventional trees and small buds is woven with pale brown silk. The surface is broken irregularly to suggest wear by light green cotton, and gold thread. The warp is silk, the weft cotton.
