Light neutral colored linen, stained and worn, decorated with an eight-pointed star woven with brown wool, and light natural- colored linen. The center of the star is a circle enclosing interlaced bands. An orange four-petal motif is in the center of the composition. Grape leaves are in the eight pointed areas of the star framing the central roundel. The interlaced bands and details on the leaves are executed by a flying shuttle.
