Weathered textile segmented into three decorative bands

The horizontal rectangular textile is frayed along the edges and heavily worn. The remaining design of the piece shows three horizontal bands. The top band is an interlocking yellow diamond-shaped pattern on a light brown background. The middle band is on a gold background with a row of red circles. On the top and bottom edges of the band is a thin red band with white script written on it. The third band below the middle band is the same pattern as the top band. The bands end at a light brown rectangular on the right side.
