    Two wide bands separated by two narrow bands with a continuous vine. One of the wide bands has a row of arches, alternately filled with diamond shapes and cross-hatching. The arches have a pearl border and are separated by tall, slender stylized plants. The design is red on white. The second wide band has a white continuous vine with large flowers attached, against a red ground.

    Stitching on the remains of a rolled hem. The reverse shows slightly more dye saturation than the surface.
