On each end of a white towel are three borders of tapestry weaving. The ground of the main border is red. The design of diamonds and other geometrical forms, is of blue, yellow and white cotton. The ground of the guard bands is white. The design of oblong pointed forms is of dark blue and yellow. Twisted fringe on the ends. Dr. Ross calls this Slavonic.
