Design of parallel bands, one of plain light brown wool and the other of white ground with connected octagons woven with light and dark brown wool; both bands are framed by crenelated festoon borders; the octagonal motifs enclose rosettes and the festoons of the border bracket crosses. Probably a sleeve band.
