    Rectangular fabric with a five-lobed border of tabs; on the three sides not torn, the rectangle has a surrounding band with continuous vine and leaves, and its interior has a checkerboard pattern filled with small, lobed circles and a large medallion. The five tabs each have a different design, of geometric and stylized vegetal shapes.

    Selvedge. There is blue stitching to hem the side and tabs. Light blue fills the checker-board and parts of the medallion. Some of the resist was probably applied by hand.
