The warp is of white wool: the weft is of brown wool: the pile is also of wool: 12 Persian (Sehna) knots to the square centimeter. In the middle and on each end is a web with a woven design. Between the webs are designs of zig-zag lines and triangles of white, blue, dark red and dark brown. In one place are two small patches of pinkish violet silk. The photograph [on card] only shows part of the piece.
