The beige textile is roughly in the shape of a vertical rectangle and is frayed along the edges and throughout the piece. There are five somewhat continuous horizontal bands. The top band has a pink and blue oval pattern. The band below it has a wavy vine-like pattern with pink, yellow, and blue flowers. The third band, the thickest one, has dark blue on the top and bottom and interlocking gold circles in the middle. The fourth band has a similar vine-like pattern to the second, except it has only yellow flowers with touches of blue. The final band has a blue and beige oval pattern. At the bottom of the textile, there is a fragmented white band, and below it a thin green line.
