Textile fragment with tab-shapes and plants

On display

Details

  • Catalogue text

    A row of four tab shapes filled with red plants against a background of small, white tendrils. Adjacent are narrow bands of white zigzag against a red ground. The area of the tabs has been over-dyed with blue.

    The reverse shows slightly more dye saturation than the surface. A line of white stitching crosses the tabs; as the pattern is bleached on one side of them, this was probably a seam.
