White woolen garment, into which is woven with greenish brown and white wool, a band with a design of scrolls and conventional plants. The areas of the scrolls are separated by areas that enclose tree motifs. On one end is an oval pendant enclosing an animal. Design is very similar to 15.750, probably part of the same garment.
