    Various bands, parallel, diagonal, and at right angles to each other. Bands with a pattern made up from dots, representing a continuous vine with tendrils as in Cat. no. 525 [EA1990.532], separate a variety of patterns: the snow-flake design of Cat. no. 35 [EA1990.43], rosettes and diamonds as in Cat. no. 78 [EA1990.86], and small dots and stars. The patterns are white against a red or brown background.

    The reverse shows more dye saturation than the surface.
