The textile is approximately rectangular with irregular edges and some lost areas. Saint Theodore’s flesh is worked in shades of undyed, pale pink, and tan, threads and he wears an off-white robe with a red collar and blue border fastened by a small decorative pin on the proper right shoulder. He is in a three-quarters pose, and has blues, red lips, and a medium-brown beard that extends just past his chin. Theodore has short, curly brown hair and his head is framed by an off-white halo. To the right is a hand grasping a staff with a jeweled cross. Remnants of another staff appear to his left.
