Not On View
Fragment of a band with an interlaced motif woven with yellow wool on a ground of dark neutral green wool. The main area is filled with a row of rosettes inside octagons; and each of the two sides encloses a row of smaller octagons enclosing rosettes. The details of the design are formed by a flying shuttle. Probably a fragment of a garment.
