Warp goat’s hair; weft, wool and cotton. The main field is divided into three panels, the ground of the middle panel is red, of the end panels, blue. The angular designs are woven with blue, red, green, white and yellow. Around the middle panel is a wide white border, around the other two, red borders. Green, red, and blue decorated borders surround the whole piece. The white borders and details are of cotton. Although these pieces were evidently made to be sewed together, they are woven so differently that the points of the design do not meet.
